Oral Hygienist Services in Johannesburg

Dedicated Oral Care for Healthy Happy Teeth

Visiting our dental practice on a regular bases will ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy for years to come. Our specialist Oral Hygienist is an expert clinician in the field and is enthusiastic about educating our patients in Joburg on the best and most effective ways to keep their teeth and gums in the best possible condition. As the saying goes, prevention is always better (and cheaper) than the cure!

Good dental hygiene comes from both a bi-annual or yearly check ups at the clinic as well as good care at home. The steps to keeping healthy teeth and gums are relatively simple, from brushing morning and night as well as regular use of dental flosses and mouthwashes. That being said, problems can still arise, and poor oral hygiene can lead to a number of health concerns, some of which could become serious if left untreated.


What Happens if I keep Poor Oral Hygiene?

For most, its recommended that you visit your Dental Hygienists in Johannesburg at least twice a year to assist you in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. In the event that you haven’t been in a while, here are some of the tell tale signs that you may have been neglecting your oral care.

If you do happen to be experiencing any of the above symptoms, its recommended that you book an appointment with the Hygienist or Dental professional to gain some advice on the best course of treatment and to further address any concerns you may have.

Bad Breath

One or more loose teeth

Receding gum line

Swelling in the gums

Bleeding of the gums

Pain when brushing

What services does the Oral Hygienist provide?

A visit to the Hygienist at Dr. Alter Dental Clinic is typically a worry free and painless experience. We will examine the overall health of your mouth, teeth and gums and check for any visible sign of oral diseases or tooth decay and perform some general oral care.

The Hygienist that you visit will perform a professional clean and polish using a combination of modern techniques. The aim of this process is to remove any stubborn bacterial deposits and plaque build up from above and below the gum line that conventional brushing at home can’t reach. Targeting these often neglected areas of the mouth helps to maintain overall good oral hygiene and prevents bacteria building up and causing bad breath.

Once the plaque has been removed, we perform professional teeth cleaning Johannesburg and finally tooth polishing to leave your mouth feeling smooth and fresh.

Your teeth Hygiene specialist will be happy to make recommendations about the correct products you can use at home to care for your teeth and keep healthy gums to prevent disease and other oral conditions. Feel free to ask for advice or discuss any concerns you may have. We’re here to help in any way we can.
