Hygiene Dentistry Melbourne
We are passionate about preventative care.
We are passionate about preventative care and want to empower you to live your best life with a healthier smile. Through ongoing education, care and consultation we will work together to deliver you an effective home care routine, and regular maintenance appointments, to help keep your teeth and gums healthy and your breath fresh.
Maintaining good oral hygiene at home is straight forward, and our friendly team can assess your teeth and develop a personalised hygiene routine for you to take home. Click through to read more about the oral hygiene treatments and services we offer.
Your hygiene appointment will involve a thorough clean from our friendly and attentive dental hygienists. Your gums will be checked, with a focus on plaque, calculus (hardened plaque or tartar) and the removal of surface staining. You will then be checked for gingivitis or gum disease, and screened for other diseases such as oral cancer. We will work with you to show you the most effective brushing and oral care routine. At your regular visit (6 - 12 month visits), the appointment is also combined with a dental exam, which includes a complete check-up of your teeth and restorations, with the aim of identifying concerns before they evolve. Radiographs (X-Rays) may be requited at this visit, but will be discussed with you beforehand.
"Empowering patients with the necessary information to maintain their optimum oral health is extremely rewarding. My patients love the freedom of feeling healthier."
Dr John Hagiliassis, Principal Dentist
