At Limestone Coast Dental we recommend our patients have regular hygiene appointments to maintain oral and dental health.

With Dentistry it is important to adopt a preventative approach as this can eliminate the need for more extensive or costly treatment.

Your oral health can have implications for your general health and well being. (see links below for further information)

Our Hygienist or Oral Health Therapist are dental practitioners with specific training in all aspects of preventative care.

Your appointment may involve

  • Meticulous removal of calculus and plaque from your teeth (scaling your teeth)
  • Removal of stains
  • Polishing your teeth
  • Individually tailored oral hygiene instruction
  • demonstrations of aids that may useful for your oral health
  • Fluoride application to your teeth to prevent decay
  • assessment of gum health
  • taking of x-rays

This appointment could be performed in conjunction with a six monthly check up as part of a healthy dental routine.
