Dental Hygiene Treatment

Dental Hygiene Treatment at Naenae

Our Wellington Dental Hygienists and Oral Health Therapists work closely with our Wellington dental team to provide a complete care approach to our patient’s oral health.

What Does A Dental Hygienist Do?

A dental hygienist’s mission is to keep the supporting tissues of the teeth healthy, such as the gums and bones that provide the foundations for your teeth. This care prevents gingivitis or periodontal disorders, sometimes known as gum disease, prevention, diagnosis, and non-surgical treatment. These problems are often asymptomatic, but they can manifest as bleeding when brushing, bad breath, swollen and red-looking gums, loose teeth, or gum recession, and early detection of these issues is critical in the prevention of gum and bone destruction, so you may decide you need hygiene treatment on your own or as a recommendation by your dentist.

What Does A Dental Hygiene Treatment Involve?

To treat these issues, a Dental Hygiene Treatment may include scaling and polishing stains and deposits (such as plaque and calculus/tartar) from your tooth surfaces, which can be done using numbing gels or local anaesthetics if necessary. Your dental hygienist will recommend monthly dental maintenance sessions based on your unique needs to guarantee stability and avoidance of new issues, as well as complete recommendations for continuing home care. Apart from gum disease treatment and prevention, the Naenae Dental Hygiene department may also help you with whitening, nutritional guidance, at-home oral health care with product choices and programmes, implant and prostheses maintenance, sensitivity treatments, and advice concerning decay or erosion.
