Examination and Hygiene
At MHS Dentistry we are focused on preventative dentistry through periodic maintenance with our much loved Dental Hygienist. Oral examinations are appointed with one of our experienced dentists.
Our Hygienist works with the Dentists to co-diagnose any areas of concern. We recommend you visit our expert Dentist and Hygienist every 6 months to ensure that any early problems can be diagnosed and attended to. Tooth decay, if undiagnosed, can cause tooth loss, and therefore it is essential that it is treated before it has a chance to cause increased damage.
Our Hygienist will screen for oral cancers routinely at the active maintenance appointment. Any abnormalities will be noted and investigated, this includes abnormalities of your gums, jaw joints, upper and lower jaw, oral mucosa, tongue and palate. Measurements of the gums will be recorded by the Hygienist to assess the health of the gums and monitor gum health over time. Halitosis (bad breath), is a problem that can be overcome by listening to and understanding the hygiene guidelines put in place for your individual needs.
A comprehensive assessment will be completed by the Dentist to ensure good health and piece of mind. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact MHS Dentistry at Kogarah for a consultation – 02 80215274 or 0421 342 296.
