Commonly Asked Questions

What is Good Oral Hygiene?

A good oral hygiene routine combines an at-home teeth maintenance routine with regular dentist appointments for professional teeth cleaning and hygiene services. Having children start a healthy oral hygiene routine from a young age that they keep doing for the rest of their lives can significantly help to ensure good health and aesthetics of their teeth.

What Issues Can Occur Due to Poor Oral Hygiene?
  • Gum disease/gingivitis
  • Oral infections
  • Periodontitis
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Strokes
  • Various other dental and health problems
What Should I Do to Keep My Teeth Clean?
  • Brushing: You should brush your teeth twice a day, as this helps to remove plaque, stains and bacteria. This will protect your teeth, mouth and gums from infections and decay.
  • Flossing: Flossing removes food particles and bacteria that are stuck in-between the teeth where toothbrushes can’t reach. Not flossing can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Diet and Lifestyle: Sugary and acidic foods and drinks can cause damage to the teeth and gums, leading to infection and decay. Smoking and drinking too much alcohol can also affect your mouth hygiene.
How Often Should I Have An Appointment With An Oral Hygiene Therapist?

Ideally, you should have an appointment at our South Melbourne clinic every six months. The oral hygiene therapist at Dental on Clarendon is available at a reasonable dental hygienist cost.

What Are Some Dental Hygiene Tips I Should Follow?
  • Ensure you use a proper brushing technique
  • Clean between your teeth
  • Stick to a healthy diet
  • Rinse out your mouth after every meal with antiseptic mouthwash
  • Clean your tongue to remove plaque
