Professional Teeth Cleaning for South Melbourne Patients
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 wellbeing. 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.
Our clients in South Melbourne, Albert Park, Port Melbourne and surrounding suburbs can enjoy the benefits of professional teeth cleaning at Bay Street Dental’s full service dental clinics.
Teeth whitening is performed by our dental hygienists in South Melbourne 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.
