Many people underestimate how important oral hygiene is to their overall health. The health of your mouth is often a good indication as to the health of your internal organs and general well-being. Your mouth is home to millions of different types of bacteria and whole colonies of microorganisms. With so much going on in our mouths, it is vital we pay special attention to teeth cleaning and gum care to help in our overall health.
Operating for many years in Melbourne, we are proud to be the trusted Melbourne dentist for many locals including South Melbourne, Albert Park, Port Melbourne.
Teeth whitening is performed by our Bay Street Dental Group hygienists who use a variety of special tools to scrape and remove built up plaque and tartar from the teeth. As build up also occurs below the gum line, the hygienist will also clean below the gum line. It is normal to experience some sensitivity and soreness after your teeth cleaning. Your hygienist will talk to you about your oral health and advise on proper mouth care including how to improve your cleaning and flossing practice at home.
Since we are committed to providing comprehensive dental care to our patients, you can count on us for routine and deep cleaning services.
Routine dental cleaning is a standard part of oral care, recommended every six months for most individuals. This cleaning involves using different tools to remove the bacteria and tartar buildup between the teeth and gums. The key features of a routine cleanup include plague and tartar removal, polishing, flossing and fluoride treatment, and oral examination.
Deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a more intensive dental procedure typically recommended for individuals with gum disease (periodontal disease) or significant buildup of tartar below the gumline. It is a non-surgical treatment aimed at removing bacterial deposits and promoting healing of the gums. Key features of deep cleaning include scaling, root planing, and local anaesthesia.
