Dental Hygiene

Andrea Dental Hygiene

It’s shocking to think that many people have never been given the right advice on how to clean their teeth and gums properly — the most critical aspect of dental health.

We take this responsibility to our patients seriously because we want to empower people to protect their oral health as well as they can for life. When we see patients for a check-up we’re hoping there are no problems such as cavities, gum disease and enamel wear and we ideally want to pass them on to the hygienist for a routine clean before they go.

Hygiene appointments every 6 or 12 months are a reliable way to remove plaque that’s too stubborn for normal brushing and flossing, and if plaque isn’t removed it can lead to gum disease, which can irreversibly affect the bone surrounding teeth and eventually cause tooth loss.
