At Platinum Dental Care, we adopt a preventative approach to your oral health.

A key part of that is excellent oral hygiene. Good oral hygiene habits can help prevent the need for further treatment by limiting the build-up of plaque and inhibiting tooth decay.

What is dental hygiene?

Keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy is a crucial aspect of dental care. Maintaining good oral hygiene improves the condition and appearance of your teeth. Your dental hygienist can advise you on the best practises for good dental hygiene at home. We also offer Airflow® tooth polishing to help you achieve optimum levels of cleanliness.

How can I improve my dental hygiene?

Everyone is unique, but there are several ways we can improve our dental hygiene:

  • Brushing your teeth for up to two minutes at least twice a day.
  • Flossing daily to clean away plaque and trapped food particles.
  • Limiting the consumption of sugary, sticky or acidic food and drinks.
  • Visiting your dentist and hygienist regularly.

What is the role of a dental hygienist?

A dental hygienist can advise you on all aspects of your oral hygiene, as well as identifying specific issues like a build-up of plaque or inflammation in your gums. Your hygienist can also give you tips on your brushing technique or any other necessary modifications to your regular dental hygiene routine.

If you wear braces or a bonded retainer, you may need to use special cleaning equipment or techniques to maintain your oral health. In this case, your dental hygienist will offer specific cleaning advice that can help limit the build-up of plaque around the device.

What are the benefits of dental hygiene?

Maintaining good dental hygiene will keep your natural teeth healthier for longer. A build-up of plaque or tartar on your teeth can lead to tooth decay, gum recession or gum infection. If left untreated, these problems can progress to tooth loss.

Good oral hygiene can also extend the life of any prosthetic teeth you might have. In addition, keeping up your oral hygiene may improve your social interactions by avoiding common causes of bad breath and keeping your smile looking brighter and healthier.

How can regular visits to a dental practice help my dental hygiene?

By visiting a dentist every six months, you will receive a thorough examination of your oral health. Your dentist can address any dental or hygiene issues you may have, give you preventative advice and refer to you to a hygienist for professional cleaning

At Platinum Dental Care, we prioritise preventative dentistry and strive to help both children and adults practice good dental hygiene habits to promote lasting oral health.
