A build up of plaque on teeth commonly causes gum (or periodontal) disease, which is the deterioration of the tissues and bones in the mouth.

Gum disease can manifest as inflamed, swollen or bleeding gums, toothache, bad breath, an unpleasant taste in the mouth or loosening teeth. Sometimes insidious and difficult to spot, if untreated gum disease can result in tooth loss and a range of other more serious health problems.

At no.8 Clinic Shannon St we offer a spectrum of oral health care services to help prevent and manage oral disease, and our hygienist services work in conjunction with each patient’s overall dental requirements. Committed to offering the most pleasant patient experience, our dental hygienist Sonya provides gentle and careful hygienist treatments including scale and polish, root planing and periodontal work.
