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.

Gum Disease Prevention 

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 (tartar) buildups from around your teeth and sometimes under your gums that may be causing gingivitis (gum disease). We invite you to contact our Clifton Hill clinic if you have any questions.
