Our Dental Hygiene practitioners are specially trained to work with our Dentists to provide fully integrated dental care. They play an important role in oral health, providing individualized preventive treatment and teaching patients about correct home care to prevent dental disease, tooth wear and decay.
Dental hygienists, in addition to numerous other services, meticulously clean all your teeth & gums, without any need for surgical procedures or anaesthetics. A regular visit to a dental hygienist for thorough & professional cleaning is important for maintaining the appearance & well-being of your teeth, improving not just the condition of your teeth & gums, but also your self-confidence.
Screening for signs of cavities, oral cancer and periodontal disease are also one of the most important services your dental hygienist provides. But did you know that symptoms of conditions like heart disease and diabetes can show up in your mouth as well? If our hygienist detects any signs to suggest larger health issues, she may recommend that you see a physician right away.

Dental Hygiene - Case Study
Here we have a patient that is unsatisfied with her smile. Although she is in her fifties and isn’t suffering from any pain but she wants to achieve a more youthful smile. She has a gummy smile that means she showed the gums while smiling hence the asymmetry on gum line is visible. In order to achieve aesthetically acceptable smile the right and left side of gums and teeth must be at the same level , also we are able to correct the cross bite on the left side with the help of ceramic crowns . The correct bite is when the upper teeth come over the lower teeth And not the other way around as is in this case on the left side. We also choose a whiter color for a more natural look.
In this case we replaced the old crowns and bridges and added posterior crowns . Patient is very happy with her new smile.
