Your Dental Cleaning Questions
You already know you should be brushing your teeth at home every day, but we also recommend undergoing teeth cleaning at the dentist every three to six months depending on the condition of your gums. This is just a general guideline and can vary depending on your individual needs, so speak to your dentist at Toorak Dental Studio for advice that’s personalised to your smile.
Regular dental cleaning and scaling assists with teeth and gum health, and can help prevent issues like gum disease and tooth decay.
As a general guideline, adults and children should brush their teeth twice per day - once in the morning and once before going to bed. We also recommend flossing daily and using an antibacterial mouthwash to keep your teeth and gums healthy in between brushings.
Change your toothbrush every 2-3 months and use soft-bristled toothbrushes, which are gentler on the gums and help to reduce sensitivity. If you’re experiencing pain or bleeding of the gums when brushing or flossing, make sure to book an appointment at your dentist.
When cleaning your teeth at home, your toothbrush is only able to remove plaque and tartar above the gum. This is a polishing technique that doesn’t remove bacteria and over time, tartar can continue to build up and become difficult to remove with regular cleaning.
A hygienist teeth cleaning also includes scaling and root planing, for a more thorough clean and the removal of bacteria and tartar both above and below the gum line. Removing such bacteria may also be beneficial for your immune system, and can reduce your risk of developing a range of systemic diseases.
Bacteria naturally grows in the human mouth, and neglecting to clean your teeth, tongue and gums just encourages this growth. Some types of bacteria are detrimental to your oral health and can cause bad breath, tooth decay, tooth loss, discolouration or gum disease. It can also have a negative effect on the rest of your body, since your mouth is a gateway to the rest of you.
Look after your overall health with a good at-home teeth cleaning routine and regular check-ups and cleans at the dentist.
What to expect from professional dental cleaning treatment
Visiting the hygienist for teeth cleaning, dental scaling and root planing is a straight-forward and relatively painless treatment. Our dentists will examine your mouth before proceeding with the treatment, explaining to you what is happening during every step of the way. The scaling process removes plaque, calculus and stubborn tartar from your teeth, which is followed by professional cleaning and flossing.
We use cutting-edge tools for a gentle, efficient procedure that causes minimal discomfort to our patients.
Your long-term oral health is our priority
Professional teeth cleaning at our Melbourne dental studio leads to healthier gums, less cavities and cleaner, stronger teeth. Depending on your examination and personal needs, we’ll develop a treatment plan using the latest in dentistry technology that’s designed to maintain and improve your oral health.
