Oral Hygiene Care
Dental hygiene is a very important part of keeping a healthy and happy smile for you and your family.
During an oral hygiene visit, our hygienist and dentist will carefully examine and chart your
teeth and gums noting in particular: inflammation, bleeding, swelling,
and the presence of plaque and calculus.
We will remove plaque and surface stains
by gentle scraping, polishing and the use of high-tech prophyflex
power sprays.(No, it won't hurt!) If required, we will take x-rays to examine inside and in
between the teeth and under the gums.
If there are any concerns we will
discuss them with you and the various treatment options available. We
will demonstrate how to effectively use toothbrushes, dental floss and
Our aim is to assist you in the prevention of
periodontal (gum) disease and dental cavities that can cause decay, pain
and even the loss of teeth.
We are keen to work with you in
obtaining optimum oral hygiene for life and we can educate your children
on the importance of brushing and help you encourage them to
incorporate good daily oral hygiene habits.
Regular oral hygiene visits will help your teeth stay cleaner, last longer and can prevent painful problems from developing.
Carmen is our lovely hygienist. Children and adults adore her calm and friendly manner. We call her an Altona Gate Dental Hygiene Hero!
