Dental Hygiene

Preventive Care

Dental Hygiene is a very important part of our dental care at Surrey Hills Dental Centre.

The recommendation is for patients to have their teeth examined & professionally cleaned every 6 months. Plaque & calculus can develop, even after several days of inadequate brushing or flossing.

Once formed on our teeth, it is extremely difficult for this tartar to be removed and often must be done professionally. If left unattended for a period of time, it can lead to gingivitis or periodontitis (advanced gum disease).

Come in for your Dental Hygiene today and get that smooth tooth feeling and fresh breath!

Advanced Gum Disease

Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss?  Do you get a bad taste or does your partner say you have bad breath?

Are you concerned that your gums are looking like this?  If so, you are showing signs of advanced gum disease.  Periodontitis is preventable and in many situations, reversible.

Scientific studies have conclusively proved that bad gums lead to a number of health conditions, including heart disease, Alzheimer's and low baby birth weight.  However, good gums lead to a great-looking smile.


If you are concerned about the condition of your gums, please contact us to organise an assessment of their situation.
