Remember to spring clean your teeth this season:)

Spring is the season for new beginnings and fresh starts. Are you busy in spring cleaning? We spring clean our lives and living spaces, but how many of us spring clean our teeth?

teeth cleaningHeritage Dental Group would like to share three tips to help you refresh your oral hygiene routine and spring clean your teeth this season.

1. Replace your toothbrush (or electric brush head)

Take a moment to consider how long you’ve had your current toothbrush. Was there holiday music playing on the radio and a tree in your living room at the time? According to the Australian Dental Association, you should change your toothbrush every 3-4 months. When bristles are frayed or worn out, they aren’t able to clean teeth as effectively. So if you’ve had your toothbrush since winter, we highly recommend getting a brand new one for the new season.

2. Restock on supplies

As you organize and take inventory of your cleaning supplies this spring, don’t forget to replenish your oral cleaning supplies as well. Items such as floss, mouthwash, and toothbrushes are great to have stocked up for guests or travelling. Consider purchasing extra floss or a toothbrush to leave in your purse or vehicle in case of emergencies.

3. Schedule a professional teeth cleaning

Be sure to add a trip to Heritage Dental Group on your list of to-dos! Just like how our homes need a deep scrub, we recommend coming in for a check-up and a professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year. This season is a great time to schedule an appointment since we’re already in cleaning mode. What better way to prepare for a spring than with a healthy, pearly smile?

To schedule an appointment with us at Heritage Dental Group for your spring teeth cleaning or any other dental care needs, please call us on 07 38783384. We look forward to seeing you!

Regular Dental Checkup

Regular Dental check-ups

What goes on during a Regular dental checkup?download

During your thorough dental checkup appointment, our dentists will evaluate the health of your gums, perform a head and neck examination (to look for anything out of the ordinary) and examine your mouth for any indications of gum disease, oral cancer, diabetes or vitamin deficiencies. Don’t be surprised if the dentist examines your face, bite, saliva and movement of your lower jaw joints (TMJs). Our dentists will then clean your teeth and stress the importance of you maintaining good oral hygiene at home between visits. They will also show you how to brush and floss properly during your check-up.

While cleaning your teeth, the Dentist will pay special attention to the amount of plaque and tartar as plaque and tartar can build up in a very short time in the absence of good oral hygiene between visits. If not removed, soft plaque can harden on the teeth and irritate the gum tissue. If not treated, plaque can lead to gum disease.

Dental crowns and bridges – Heritage Dental Group

Dental crowns are a more permanent solution to dental restorations and cosmetic dental needs. They are custom-made to fit your teeth, replacing the natural surface of the tooth to give extra strength to teeth that have been weakened by extensive fillings, as a repair to broken and chipped teeth, and as an effective cosmetic improvement to the appearance of misshaped and discoloured teeth.

Have you always wanted a whiter brighter smile? Teeth whitening procedures are common in modern dentistry, and have grown in popularity over recent years. This is due to advancements in dental technology that enable patients to more easily achieve significant cosmetic improvements in the colour of their teeth, and to the increased affordability of a number of effective whitening products.
