Cairns Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene is an important part of keeping your teeth for life

Dental hygienists are highly trained and educated in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease.  They also provide preventive and educational services to enable you to maintain your oral health.

At Future Dental, we take dental hygiene seriously and see it as an important part of ensuring you have your teeth for life. Some of our dental hygiene services are listed below.

Cairns dental hygiene diagnostic services include:

  • Evaluation and assessment of your periodontal (gum) tissue
  • Evaluating your risks of severe or even life-threatening disease caused by gum disease
  • Necessary cavity and bone level detecting X-rays
  • Checking your biting, chewing and swallowing patterns
  • Evaluating possible cosmetic enhancements of your smile with a special interest in teeth whitening
  • Evaluating causes and recommendations for treatment of any concerns

Cairns dental hygiene preventative services include:

  • Oral cancer examination and screening
  • Assessing your bacterial count and risk for dental decay (caries)
  • Application of pit and fissure sealants
  • Cleaning and scaling of teeth to remove all plaque and calculus (tartar)
  • Removal of all surface stains from teeth
  • Polishing your gold, silver or composite resin fillings or crowns
  • Custom mouthguards

Cairns dental hygiene educational services:

  • Tooth brushing and flossing instruction
  • Personalised oral home care regime with recommendations of the best products to use at home
  • Nutrition counselling
  • Education about your particular risk factors for oral health problems
  • Assessing whether parents are actually spreading the bacteria that cause tooth decay to their own children and babies
  • Assessing your risk of gum disease as a potential cause of heart attack, stroke and other serious or even life-threatening diseases and conditions.

The serious side of poor dental hygiene

Did you know that dental caries (tooth decay) is a transmissible disease most commonly spread to children by parents and relatives quite innocently?

Did you know that a visit to your hygienist may save you a heart attack or stroke?

Did you know that your risk of heart attack or stroke caused by moderate to severe gum disease is twice that of having high cholesterol?

The bacteria that infect your gums in periodontal disease cause your body to produce C-Reactive Proteins (CRPs). CRPs are linked to the development of fatty deposits or plaques that line your major blood vessels. The plaques are apt to break off and be pushed through your arteries until they lodge in and block smaller arteries in your heart, brain or lungs. The result is a heart attack or stroke.

Moderate to severe gum disease is now known to also cause other serious and at times life threatening conditions such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Premature and low birth weight babies
  • Arthritis
  • Infective Endocarditis
  • Increase of breast cancer risk in post-menopausal women
  • Pneumonia and lung disease
  • and is thought to be associated with Alzheimer’s Disease and Osteoporosis.
