What can I expect from my oral health therapist visit?

After a warm welcome to the clinic, the Oral Health Therapist will assess your gum health, keeping you involved in the presentation of your gum health and provide reassurance or education on how to achieve optimal health of your gums which are the foundations for your teeth.

After the gum health check, your teeth will be cleaned using an ultrasonic scaler, hand instruments, and floss, followed by a polish. This is done to remove the calculus (tar tar) buildups from around your teeth and sometimes under your gums that may be causing gingivitis (gum disease).

Dear Patients,

Due to the lockdown taking place, we are limited in the services we can supply. If you do have a general dental appointment (check-up & maintenance teeth cleaning) booked during the lockdown period it will need to be rescheduled.
We apologise for any inconvenience, we are doing our best to see patients who qualify to have treatment done under the current restrictions & we appreciate your patience during these hard times.
