Oral Hygiene

Your mouth is the first point of contact for millions of bacteria. It can be tough to keep it clean and in great shape!

Research shows that those with poor oral hygiene are more prone to heart disease. Those diagnosed with diabetes have a higher chance of gum disease. If you lack teeth, you can risk digestive issues, as breaking down food with your teeth is the essential first step to the digestion process. Additionally, your saliva contains enzymes that help to further break down food. Therefore, your oral hygiene is of vital importance to your overall health.


Teaching You Healthy Habits

We’ll work to educate you on proper brushing and flossing habits to keep your mouth healthy. Then, we’ll also discuss your diet, since the food you put into your mouth can contribute to decay and the deterioration of your teeth.

We recommend regular checkups every six months to examine and clean your mouth, making sure your oral hygiene is top-notch.

Services such as fissure sealants are available as preventative measures.

Help for Periodontal Disease

The bone structure that supports your teeth can break down from deposits on the teeth. It can also be caused by dry mouth, a side effect of many medications. We can help to recognise the early signs of periodontal disease and can refer you to a specialist if required.

We accept insurance and have HICAPS facilities on-site. Book your appointment today! Free parking is offered for your convenience.
