Oral hygiene appointments are an excellent way to keep your gums healthy, greatly reducing the risk of you developing gum disease. This is because the treatment removes tartar or hardened plaque from your teeth, a substance that can otherwise produce toxins which inflame and infect the gums.
We recommend regular oral hygiene appointments and it’s a great idea to book them at the same time as your regular examinations. During a hygiene appointment, our hygienist will gently scale and polish your teeth, a process that removes tartar from your teeth, helping to protect them against gum disease. Gently polishing your teeth helps to remove some surface stains, leaving your mouth feeling fresh and clean.
Oral Hygiene Education
Our hygienist is great at patient education so please ask anything you can think of that you think might help improve your oral care at home. Your appointment will include an assessment of your mouth, and they can make recommendations based on any areas they think you might be missing during your dental care at home. If you struggle with flossing or would like a few tips on how to brush more effectively then this is another area that we can look at. It’s surprising how much a quick demonstration can really help improve technique.
You can make an appointment by calling us on (02) 9971 8992. Our dental practice is located at Suite 1, 5 Dee Why Parade, Dee Why NSW 2099.
