Direct Access / Hygiene

Here at Southside Dental Care we realise that the basics to a happy, beautiful smile starts with a good oral health routine. Maintaining your oral health is vital to avoiding gum disease and decay, as well as protecting your overall health. Many studies have shown a strong relationship between gum disease and medical conditions such as strokes, heart disease, diabetes, bacterial lung infections and more.

Rachael Binnie, our in-house Hygienist is here to provide the highest level of hygiene treatments to ensure your mouth is in good health. From the treatment of early gum disease to more extensive periodontal cleaning, Rachael will aim to remove all plaque and tartar both above and below the gum line so that growth of harmful bacteria can be eliminated to help protect your teeth and gums.

The best oral health can only be achieved with an effective cleaning routine at home, so Rachael can also advise you on the best types of toothbrush, mouthwash and dental floss for your teeth and provide you with a tailored plan for your personal dental hygiene routine.

Whether you need a quick brighten up with a classic clean or a more extensive treatment for gum disease Rachael is always here to help.

Speak to your dentist at your next appointment about which Hygiene treatment is best for you.
