WHY DO I NEED TO SEE A DENTAL HYGIENIST?
Your mouth is an area that is completely different from your entire body, but is also connected, by causing issues in your entire body if the mouth is not healthy. This unique environment requires special care.
At the Dental Hygiene Clinic, we first assess your soft tissue and check for any unpleasant mouth odours along with how much staining, plaque and calculus you have.
Gum disease is when your body's immune system is responding to plaque formation with inflamed and bleeding gums. The immune system response is successful at killing off invaders as long as you are maintaining your home care correctly. As gum disease progresses, so does the destruction of your bone and tissues in your mouth. That's why preventing gum disease reduces the risk of stroke, heart disease, and dementia.
