Hygiene Overview

Our hygiene programme provides a wonderful opportunity to connect with our patients in a holistic manner.

Your hygienist will engage with you, your health, and your wellbeing.

For example, stress decreases your periodontal condition with higher salivary cortisol levels.

High salivary cortisol may have a negative impact on the periodontitis, leading to aggressive periodontal disease.

Studies have shown that patients with aggressive periodontal disease have an average 53% higher salivary cortisol levels than healthy controls.

It is now clear from the epidemiologic studies that a potential link does exist between periodontal disease (PD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Oral healthcare professionals can identify patients who are unaware of their risk of developing serious complications because of CVD and who need medical intervention.

Gone are the days when a quick “clean” done by a dentist will suffice for patients to keep their teeth for life.
