Why do I need to see both the Oral Health Therapist, and the Dentist?
Our Registered Oral Health Therapist is a health professional responsible for keeping your teeth and gums in optimum condition. Her role is two-fold; firstly, to care for your gums, which is especially important as most teeth are lost because of a painless bacterial infection that eats away at your jawbone, causing gum and jawbone (periodontal) disease. Because bacteria breeds quietly in all of our mouths, we are all at risk of developing this infection. Regular Active Maintenance appointments with your Oral Health Therapist helps to prevent you losing teeth, through preventing this bacterial infection. It also helps to manage common ailments such as bad breath and bleeding gums.
Secondly, she will keep your teeth looking fabulous via a professional clean and polish. She'll remove all your staining caused by those vices we all love (coffee, tea, wine or cigarettes) and review your gum attachment levels, clean off all that calculus and plaque and check the bone levels around your teeth roots. This helps you to make sure you keep the teeth you already have! Find our more about Accent Dental's Oral Health Therapist.
