Teeth cleaning by a dental hygienist
No one cares more about your oral health than your skilled and experienced dental hygienist at our Essendon dental practice.
We aim to provide oral health education to our patients and the local community. Dental hygienists specialise in keeping gums healthy. Knowledge and advice from your hygienist helps you in managing regular cleaning and maintenance of your mouth.
Our dental hygienists continue their dental education all throughout the year, which keeps them on track with the latest technology and dental information within their field.
Our Essendon dental practice has a long history of educating children from the local community. Our dental team makes it a priority to visit local kindergartens and schools in the surrounding areas such as Niddrie, Moonee Ponds, Strathmore, Airport West and Keilor East. Visiting the younger people in these educational locations makes it easy for us to spread the message of regular teeth cleaning and dental visits. We also provide preventative techniques to minimise tooth decay in our younger patients, such as fissure sealants. These initiatives are an invaluable asset to our patients, parents and the community.
Some of the routine procedures we undertake include:
- regular 6-monthly cleaning
- taking X-rays
- completing gum and bone measurement
- oral cancer exams
- taking impressions and progress photos.
Our skilled dental staff can diagnose gum and periodontal disease and develop a treatment plan to help patients with these conditions. Dental hygienists also specialise in deep gum scaling and cleaning for patients with periodontal disease or infected gum issues.
