The oral health therapist
The (oral health therapist) hygienist plays a primarily preventive role in the practice. We place great emphasis on educating our patients about the importance of their oral health in relation to their general health.
Your hygiene appointment will include:
- An assessment of your oral health, focusing especially on the detection of gum disease.
- The treatment of gums by removal of the disease-producing bacteria by scaling and polishing.
- Individual patient education measures to maintain good oral health.
- Dietary advice.
