Excellent oral health starts here
Dental hygiene is a cornerstone of good dental health and at Aviva Dentistry we place as much importance on it as we do dental check-ups. Attending your regular hygiene appointments can help to enhance your home care regime by cleaning all the areas that you cannot reach.
Our hygiene therapists are dual skilled which means they are able to carry out a wide variety of treatments. This covers the full scope of dental hygiene, preventing and treating gum and periodontal disease through professional cleaning, scaling and polishing, as well as some restorative work such as fillings and preventative sealants to protect against cavities and tooth decay. They are also able to carry out tooth whitening treatments.
Your hygiene therapist can provide a wealth of advice about toothbrushing techniques and the best products to buy to enhance your oral health, such as floss or interdental brushes, as well as explaining how different toothbrushes may work better for your unique needs. They can share which areas of your mouth may require slightly more attention during your home care to ensure that you maximise your oral health.
