Scale and Clean

Dental Hygiene at Ellenbrook Dental Clinic

A good daily dental hygiene routine will ensure your teeth and gums are rid of the daily build up of plaque and tartar.

Why Is Teeth Cleaning So Important ?

Gum disease and tooth decay is the most common global disease affecting every family in the world. We know, that’s pretty serious, right. Over 80% of cavities occur inside pits and fissures on chewing surfaces where brushing cannot reach.

Food is generally left trapped after every meal or snack and saliva or fluoride have no access to neutralise acid and re-mineralise demineralised tooth.

Your Daily Dental Hygiene Routine

Brush your teeth morning and night.

Follow this simple routine for a perfect daily dental hygiene routine. Toothbrushes, mouthwash, flossing ribbon and tongue scrapers are all available from our practice.
