Dental hygienist in TownsvilleThe cornerstone of success at Casey Dentists is our comprehensive Dental Hygiene department headed by Mrs Michelle Mahon.

A regular active maintenance program allows the hygienist to observe the health state of your mouth. She will educate you on current standards of care in the prevention of disease. She will actively contribute to the achievement of oral health within your teeth, gum tissues and underlying jaw bone. At your first Dental Hygiene appointment at Casey Dentists a comprehensive periodontal examination of your gums and jaw bone will be completed to assess the health state, followed by a series of digital radiographs and a panoramic (nose to chin; ear to ear) view called an OPG will be taken with our new Planmeca Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography Machine.

Subsequent removal of bacteria that infect along the gum line and below the gum will be removed as these bacteria cause the gums to swell, bleed and sometimes detach from the tooth and be painful.

The Hygienist will work under direction of the dentist and follow a prescribed treatment plan for you. Often the dentist will come into the appointment and observe the health state of your mouth as directed by the Dental Hygienist.

On completion of your appointment a fluoride mouth rinse will be administered to strengthen your tooth enamel and leave you with a fresh, crisp and vibrant breath and sparkling, shiny teeth.

Your hygienist will recommend a personalised home care program and your next active maintenance appointment.
