Flossing is as important as brushing. It removes plaque from between the teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. Flossing correctly takes practice and is an acquired skill!

Brushing
REMEMBER: Only brush the teeth you want to keep!

Prevention starts at home

Brushing twice a day and flossing once a day are the golden rules for good dental health. Regardless of your age, always use a soft brush with a small head. Hard brushes can destroy your teeth. You should also replace your toothbrush every 3 months; if it is looking worn in less than 3-months, then your technique may need correcting - which we can help with at your next check-up. Remember to always brush your gums as well as your teeth.

A regular oral hygiene routine is imperative if you want to maintain a healthy, bright smile and prevent recurrent, costly dental treatment in the future.

The goal of your oral hygiene routine is the regular removal of the sticky film of bacteria called plaque from your teeth. Plaque is the enemy.

Just because you are not experiencing any current discomfort or pain does not mean there isn't a problem. Most dental diseases are chronic, meaning that pain typically arises when the infection is already extremely severe.

Regular six monthly visits will go along way in avoiding unpleasant surprises and can save you money by alleviating problems while they are small and before they become expensive to repair, or in some cases, impossible to repair.

Book a consultation with any of the Taylor Groenlund & Doan team on 02 9637 8877 or email us: taygrodoan@merrylandsdentalsurgery.com.au. Any preventive care leads to savings and improved long term dental health.

Fluoride is a natural mineral found in food and water which helps to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay, by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque and sugars. If fluoride is lacking from the diet, the teeth will be prone to tooth decay and cavities.

Fluoride treatment is a very simple process administered by the dentist which helps to prevent tooth decay.

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves. Fissure sealants do not eliminate the need for fluoride treatment.

The examination is performed by the dentist using good lighting, a mirror, a dental probe and compressed air to dry the tooth surfaces.

We strongly recommend that new dental x-rays are taken every 1-2 years to ensure that you do not have any undetected dental problems that are not visible to our naked eyes.

Daily brushing and flossing keeps healthy mouths healthy, however there are many other dental problems that brushing and flossing alone cannot fix. For this reason, we recommend all our patients come in for regular examinations to help detect potential problems before they become hazardous to your health.
