Why do I see the Periodontal Hygienist at Perio Care?

Posted in FAQs, Periodontal Therapy on .

The registered periodontal hygienist at Perio Care has a critical role in supporting the care provided by your periodontist.  They have had specific training and exposure to an extensive range of periodontal conditions and treatment modalities – and their work is performed under the immediate and on-site direction of your periodontist.

The absence of gum disease and tooth decay will help you maintain your teeth for life. The hygienist works with the periodontist to establish and maintain a programme tailored to meet your specific needs.

Not all phases of your treatment at Perio Care require the clinical services of your periodontist – some of these can be done by the qualified hygiene team.  This is designed to maximise appointment flexibility and reduce waiting times for patients.
