At Newcastle Dental Care we are committed to providing you with comprehensive dental care, therefore we have established within our practice, a dedicated hygiene department. Our wonderful dental hygienist Belinda is a valuable member of our team who provides a range of dental care treatments for adults and children.
Root planing and scaling is a treatment therapy completed by Belinda, which involves the removal of plaque and tartar build-up from the tooth surface and below your gum-line. This is an important total oral care procedure as removal of tartar cannot be achieved by brushing and flossing. Alexandra can also remove stains and polish your teeth to achieve a whiter, fresher smile.
Belinda will often take x-rays and make impression moulds from which study casts, mouthguards and whitening trays can be made. Belinda can also apply pit and fissure sealant to prevent decay developing in back molar teeth of children as well as provide fluoride treatments when necessary.
Having extensive knowledge on the relationship between diet and oral health, enables Belinda to provide valuable oral health education information and advice on achieving and maintaining your long-term oral health. Belinda can help you develop and implement an effective at home care routine and give you tips on caring for your children’s teeth to ensure they remain strong and healthy.
