Hygiene Services

All of our patients receive instructions on cleaning and flossing for the care of teeth, gums and dental prostheses. After the age of 35 gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss – not tooth decay. Research  has found links between gum disease, heart disease, stroke and pre-term babies in pregnant women. To help prevent problems before they happen, we recommend regular cleanings with one of Tri-Town Dental Centre’s* highly skilled hygienists. Only a hygienist can remove all of the plaque and calculus that builds up below the gum line.
