Dental Hygiene

Optimal dental hygiene is critical in preventing decay and gum disease, and maintaining lifelong oral health. Kerikeri Dental Centre offers the services of our qualified dental hygienist – Prudence, who is highly trained in optimising the dental health of our clients through education and tailored oral health & preventive programs. Dental hygiene appointments usually include diagnostic procedures to evaluate the health of your teeth and gums, in addition to treatment tailored to your individual oral health needs.

Your appointment can include:
  • A review of your medical history
  • Comprehensive assessment of your gum health
  • Bacteria testing and saliva analysis
  • Thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth
  • Assessment of existing dental restorations
  • Evaluation of possible cosmetic enhancements to your smile
  • Application of decay preventing agents
  • Individualised oral hygiene instruction including tooth brushing and flossing, counselling in proper nutrition and recommendations for future treatment
  • Referral to specialists for specific treatment (as needed).
Depending on the health of your teeth and gums, you may need to visit the hygienist every 3, 6 or 12 months. At each visit we monitor you customised oral hygiene program with a view to preventing problems rather than treating them years later

Please note: the range of services and related fees may differ between practices.
