At the PerioCentre, our registered dental hygienists are all very experienced and they take care of our patients and maintain their optimum oral health through regular and thorough cleanings of teeth and dental implants, with the patients comfort a priority. They will also aid in oral hygiene instructions to ensure optimum care of your teeth and dental implants. They work closely with our specialists and help in detecting early signs of dental, periodontal and peri-implant disease as well as assist our patients in understanding the periodontal disease process (causes and prevention), and the impacts on overall systemic health.
