Oral hygiene impacts your overall health. Preventative care and patient education are a foundation of our practice. Our goal for all our patients is to maintain healthy gums and clean teeth; to improve your overall dental health. Our hygienists are friendly, knowledgeable, gentle and very effective at removing tarter and stain from your teeth; the hygiene team is licenced to administer local anaesthetic, if needed, to decrease sensitivity during a dental cleaning. Dental cleanings are booked according to patient’s individual needs to ensure they receive the best dental care they need.

Periodontal disease

Periodontal or gum disease is an infection that affects the gums and jaw bone, which can lead to a loss of gum and teeth. There are two major stages — gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the milder and reversible form; periodontal disease is often more severe. In some cases, gum surgery will be required to reverse the effect of the disease.
