Oral Health is fast becoming a concern worldwide due to scientific evidence and studies proving many links with our general health and wellbeing. We cannot stress more on how important it is to have optimal oral health!

Here at Hartwell Dentistry, we pride ourselves on having a devoted and successful Hygiene Department. Our dedicated team are here to assist you in improving and maintaining a healthy mouth.

WHY DOES MY DENTIST WANT ME TO SEE THE DENTAL HYGIENIST?

What is a dental hygienist?

A Dental Hygienist/Oral Therapist has graduated with a 3 year University Degree and is able to provide you with preventative care and gum treatment that enhance your overall oral health. They are registered dental healthcare professionals that work with the dentist to provide you with holistic dental care that is suited to your needs. They also play a special role in being able to treat cavities in children and young adults.

Importance of maintaining gum health:

Dental disease ,whether it is decay or gum disease can generally be prevented and treated by simply removing the plaque before becoming calculus. The ability for optimal home care can be challenging  and that is why hygienists are there to help and guide you to improve with oral hygiene care.

Prevention is better than cure, regular maintenance of gum health with regular visits means that the hygienist is able to monitor how your gum health is so that you can prevent any future problems.

OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ONGOING CARE OF YOUR TEETH:

Here at Hartwell Dentistry, your health and comfort are of utmost importance. It is for this reason that we have developed the Hygiene Department to work in conjunction with the dentists to give you ongoing, integrated care. Together the hygienists and dentists work towards the main goal of improving your oral health so that you can maintain a healthy body and a happy smile.

We look forward to seeing you at soon!
