Dental Hygiene

At Tweed Coast Dental Centre our highly trained and accomplished dental hygienist Sima Nowshadi is a valued member of our team who play a vital role in your oral health care.

One of the main roles of our hygienist is to advise and assist you to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Sima has extensive knowledge in oral care and the treatment and prevention of gingivitis and (periodontitis) gum disease, the leading cause of adult tooth loss. Sima is able to perform appropriate procedures to keep your teeth and gums healthy and breath fresh.

Through a procedure called root planing and scaling, a Hygienist can remove the build-up of soft and hard deposits such as calculus (tartar) from your teeth and below your gum-line, they can advise you on how to practice good oral hygiene, and provide other preventive dental care treatments for you and your children.

Hygienists perform thorough examinations on your teeth and gums for the presence of diseases or other abnormalities such as lesions, which could indicate mouth cancer. They take radiographs; apply cavity-preventive agents such as fluorides and pit and fissure sealants in addition to working in conjunction with our dentists during a range of treatment procedures.

Sima can also advise you on the relationship between diet and oral health and explain to you the importance of a well-balanced diet and the impact a diet high in sugar and starch will have on your oral and general health. She can also inform you about what to look for when selecting a new toothbrush that is most suitable for you and your children and how to brush and floss effectively.

You are invited to call and schedule a cleaning and oral health check appointment with one of our friendly hygienist, and keep your smile in perfect condition.
