Oral hygiene treatment

Oral hygiene treatment is simply having your teeth and gums cleaned professionally by a qualified dental hygienist or dentist.

Like your regular check-up visits, oral hygiene treatment is one of the most important aspects of keeping your oral health in top shape.

Plaque is a sticky substance that forms on the surface of the teeth. If not cleaned it harbours harmful bacteria that causes gum disease and dental decay. The minerals contained in saliva cause plaque to calcify or set hard on your teeth. The calcified plaque is called calculus or "tartar" and contributes greatly to gum disease. Oral hygiene treatment is careful cleaning of calculus from your teeth.

Treat Gum Disease

Gum disease is called "periodontal disease" when it affects the gums AND bone surrounding the teeth. This is a serious issue and causes pain, puffiness, loose teeth, infection and tooth loss. It is linked to systemic problems as serious as heart disease.


 If gum disease only affects the gums, it is called "gingivitis". Gingivitis is the red puffy condition of the gums creating bad odour, bleeding when you brush, puffiness and pain. In addition to its harmful effect on your health, gingivitis can make a smile very unattractive.

You can start to understand why oral hygiene treatments should not be neglected.

Gentle Touch

Our dental hygienist Donna is known for her gentle touch. She understands the need for careful monitoring of gum health and is passionate about educating her patients about effective oral hygiene and dental care.
