Dental Hygiene

At Painfree Dentistry, we are firm believers in the value of preventive dental care. Good quality dental hygiene is the most effective way to protect you and your family from tooth decay and gum disease.

We recommend that you attend regular examinations with us every 6-12 months, depending on your personal situation, to ensure potential problems are detected early. This will help minimise your treatment time and costs, and can help reduce the need for extensive restorative treatment. Regular visits also ensure you have minimal plaque and do not accumulate excessive tartar, which is difficult to remove with everyday brushing and flossing.

You should of course brush your teeth twice daily, in the morning after breakfast and at night before going to bed, using downward strokes for upper teeth and upward strokes for lower teeth. Encourage your children to brush using a circular motion.

It is also important to floss regularly, because while brushing removes plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, flossing helps to maintain oral hygiene and remove plaque from in between your teeth.

Your diet is also closely related to dental health. You should avoid excessive consumption of sweets, sticky foods, and between-meal snacks. Try to choose teeth-friendly snacks such as fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, and crackers, and minimise your consumption of soft drinks during and after meals.
