Hygiene is among the most vital elements of your overall health. It ensures that your teeth are free and clear of plaque, and greatly reduces the odds of developing gingivitis, periodontitis, or a host of other ailments related to your oral hygiene.
That is why Coastal Dental has created a dedicated hygienists practice within our clinic, specialised for use by those in need of the services of our talented hygienist staff. Alexandra, our lead hygienist, provides a wide range of dental care treatments for adults and children alike.
She offers such treatments as scaling and root planing, a therapy involving the removal of plaque and tartar from both the surface of your teeth, and below the gum line. These deposits often cannot be reached through the typical methods of brushing and flossing. She is also able to use her skills to remove stains, and polish your teeth. You will leave her care with a newer, brighter smile.
Her talents don’t stop there. She is also able to take x-rays and impression moulds from your teeth, from which study casts, mouthguards, and whitening trays can all be made. She can apply pit and fissure sealant to your teeth, used to prevent decay in back molar teeth, often used for children. She can also provide fluoride treatments when necessary.
Her extensive knowledge on the relationship between diet and oral health allows Alexandra to provide highly valuable oral health education information, along with advice on how best to care for young teeth over the long-term. She can help you devise a plan for how to encourage good oral health at home.
Dental hygienists are among the most valuable of all dentists, and we are proud to have such a talent on our staff. Contact us today and book your appointment, and make an investment in your health.
