Oral Hygiene

A strong and effective oral hygiene is essential to help us protect our teeth from issues such as decay, bad breath and the development of Periodontal (Gum) Disease.

With a belief in Prevention over a cure, our staff at Prime Dental are committed to helping all our patients develop an effective oral hygiene routine that can help them protect their teeth for life.

oral-healthWe feel that any effective oral hygiene routine should include brushing twice daily, flossing daily and regular 6 monthly check-ups and appointments with the hygienist. These are particularly important as it allows your dentist to efficiently detect and treat any potential issues before they escalate. Moreover, appointments with a hygienist are essential as even the most effective oral hygiene routine requires a professional touch every now and then. These hygiene treatments are designed to remove any tough plaque that would not dislodge through regular brushing or flossing, apply a fluoride treatment, conduct saliva testing to determine the quality of your saliva and apply fissure sealants (if required) to any deep groves and pits which naturally occur in the teeth to prevent decay.
