Inverloch families now have access to a powerful weapon in the fight against tooth decay and gum disease, with the recent introduction of dental hygienist Chiranjib Mondal to the friendly team of experts at Inverloch Family Dental.
With 13 years experience in preventative dentistry, Mr Mondal said it was his passion to help families identify and stop painful oral diseases before they began.
“Dental professionals know how to recognise and stop oral health problems before they can cause widespread illness, and painful and potential costly procedures down the track,” Mr Mondal said.
“As a dental hygienist, its my passion to educate families on the benefits of oral disease prevention. Education and early dental hygiene check ups are the first line of defence against painful and sometimes debilitating dental problems.”
“There is no barrier between the mouth and the rest of the body, so infections and other disease processes that begin in the mouth may spread illness to the rest of the body.
Mr Mondal’s role as a dental hygienist includes the following preventative treatments:
- Delivering periodontal therapy (gum care)
- Scaling and deep cleaning
- Taking intra oral radio graphs (x-rays)
- Fluoride applications
- Fissure sealants to prevent the formation of cavities
- Delivering oral hygiene instructions tailored to individual patients
Mr Mondal’s appointment to the friendly team at Inverloch Family Dental comes after spending two years educating Leongatha families on the importance of preventative dentistry at South Gippsland Dental clinic.
Mr Mondal is also trained to perform Zoom whitening, one of the leading whitening products available, as he believes beautiful white teeth can greatly boost personal confidence.
“A dental hygienist will also work to protect patient’s mouth and teeth in a way that improves overall health and well being, it’s all part of the holistic approach we take in delivering dental care.”
