Why see the Dental Hygienist?

Hygiene is all about Gum Disease and the Dental Hygienist is the person with an extra few years training in Dunedin with the dentists in controlling the gum disease process. The gums and bone that the teeth are supported by are the foundations of good oral health. If your gums are a problem you will have bone loss and in turn you can suffer from the effects on your general health. Gum disease has been related to Heart Disease, Diabetes, and Pancreatic Cancer. As research carries on, the links between overall health and well being are being more clearly defined.

What is Hygiene?

Dental Hygiene is the process where by your overall health is looked after by making sure that the gums and bone are in healthy condition. This is carried out by a number of technical processes in the surgery and also being educated on how you can look after your dental health. If you maintain your gums and bone health then you will find your teeth will last for a longer time and hopefully all your lifetime.
