Dental Hygiene

Your Dental Hygiene

If you have not had a dental check in the past 12 months we recommend you book for a thorough Dental Hygiene examination to evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. We remove plaque and tartar, polish your teeth and remove staining. The procedure is completed with fluoride application to help remineralise the teeth.

During the appointment:

  • The external muscles of your head and neck are gently pulpated (examined by touch) to see if there are problems with your jaw muscles or with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
  • We evaluate possible dental causes for headaches.
  • Your bite is evaluated to see if it is balanced and functioning correctly.
  • Your tongue and cheeks are examined to make sure there are no problems.

If your oral dental hygiene techniques need improvement we show you how to brush effectively and how to use other techniques to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.

Finally you are advised of any dental hygiene problems and possible solutions, with all the options and costs involved.

Our dental hygiene and maintenance centre focuses on:

  • Teeth whitening in-house with BriteSmile.
  • Take-home trays for teeth whitening.
