Scale And Clean
Dental Hygiene at Ellenbrook Dental Clinic
The Dental hygiene services offered by our team are at the heart of our practice. We’ll keep your teeth and gums clean, healthy and sparkling.
A good daily dental hygiene routine will ensure your teeth and gums are rid of the daily build up of plaque and tartar. Couple this routine with regular dental hygienist appointments for teeth cleaning at Ellenbrook Dental Clinic and we can remove the plaque and tartar in those harder to reach places to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.
Why Is Teeth Cleaning So Important ?
Gum disease and tooth decay is the most common global disease affecting every family in the world. We know, that’s pretty serious, right. Over 80% of cavities occur inside pits and fissures on chewing surfaces where brushing cannot reach. Food is generally left trapped after every meal or snack and saliva or fluoride have no access to neutralise acid and re-mineralise demineralised tooth.
This is why regular appointments with our dental hygienist in Ellenbrook are so beneficial; our hygienist uses special teeth cleaning tools and techniques to reach all the places that the common toothbrush cannot, mostly between teeth and underneath the gums.
Our dental hygiene appointments provide:
Dental hygiene examination to look for any inflammation, bleeding and plaque or calculus build up.
Scaling & polishing to remove all plaque and calculus with a variety of the latest equipment and teeth cleaning techniques.
Daily dental hygiene advice and routine to ensure you can maintain good oral health on a day to day basis in between appointments; and ensure long term problems caused by poor teeth cleaning habits remain under control.
Our dental hygienist can help with halitosis treatment too as this can be a common result of poor dental hygiene.
You will be instructed on how to optimize your techniques on tooth brushing, mouth washing, flossing and tongue cleaning from our practice.
Brush your teeth morning and night.
