The Role of Your Hygienist
Treva is a university trained oral health professional who specialises in the treatment and prevention of oral health diseases, and the maintenance of your overall oral health.
As your Hygienist, Treva will examine your teeth for early signs of decay, gum disease (gingivitis) and indications of teeth grinding. She will also examine the soft tissues of your mouth (lips, tongue, cheeks and the floor of your mouth) as problems inside the mouth can indicate health problems elsewhere in the body.
Treva will consult Dr Luke Cronin and she will discuss any issues and suitable treatments with you.
Following your examination your teeth will then be cleaned to remove the build-up of plaque and tartar deposits. The clean will target hard to reach places in-between and behind teeth and create smooth surfaces that make it harder for plaque to accumulate. Aesthetically, the clean will reduce discolouration and staining of your teeth leaving you with a brighter healthier looking smile.
