Preventive care is the key to having a lifetime of good dental health. Even though most Australian adults think they have good teeth and dental hygiene, in fact they may suffer from serious gum diseases. Gum disease is the leading cause of losing teeth, not tooth decay.
Most tooth decay and periodontal disease are preventable through proper brushing and flossing between the teeth at home and regular cleaning and care at the dentist’s office. Prophylaxis, or professional cleaning of the teeth, is usually done by a dentist or dental hygienist. Cleaning tools called scalers, either manual or ultrasonic, are used to remove tartar and other materials.
Ideally, you should visit your dentist every 6 months to check your oral hygiene. The cleaning services offered by Bytes of Byron are affordable and help you maintain an attractive and healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.
