More About Dental Hygienists

A dental hygienist is a specialist in holistic oral care. They will perform treatments to correct and prevent dental disease, and help to maintain optimal oral health. An important part of this is coaching you through proper oral health care, which includes individualised dental cleaning techniques.  They will also advise you about the impact of some of your lifestyle choices and nutritional habits on your dental health. Typical tasks a hygienist performs include:

  • Patient screening procedures.
  • Assessment of oral health conditions and oral cancer screening.
  • Removing calculus and plaque from your teeth.
  • Applying preventive materials to the teeth (sealants, fluorides or other substances).
  • Teaching patients proper techniques for tooth brushing, flossing.

What Our Patients Say

Benefits of Oral Health Treatment

Maintaining a good oral health plan is the best way to prevent dental disease, and create a beautiful healthy smile. If you have poor oral hygiene, you are likely to face issues ranging from tooth decay and cavities to gingivitis, periodontitis, and even tooth loss. These issues can cause pain and discomfort when eating, drinking, or talking, and can have a follow on effect on your overall health and well-being. The team at Glenville Dental wants to help prevent this, and help you maintain optimal oral health. We recommend attending for a check-up every 6 months, and making sure to regularly clean and floss your teeth at home.

  • Prevent dental disease and decay.
  • Maintain healthy gums.
  • Stronger and better looking teeth.
  • Cure chronic bad breath.
  • Reduced likelihood of needing dentures in the future.
  • Healthier smile.
