Oral Hygiene Care
Dental hygiene is a very important part of keeping a healthy and happy smile for you and your family.

During an oral hygiene visit, our hygienist and dentist will carefully examine and chart your teeth and gums noting in particular: inflammation, bleeding, swelling, and the presence of plaque and calculus.

We will remove plaque and surface stains by gentle scraping, polishing and the use of  high-tech prophyflex power sprays.(No, it won't hurt!) If required, we will take x-rays to examine inside and in between the teeth and under the gums.

If there are any concerns we will discuss them with you and the various treatment options available. We will demonstrate how to effectively use toothbrushes, dental floss and inter-dental brushes.

Our aim is to assist you in the prevention of periodontal (gum) disease and dental cavities that can cause decay, pain and even the loss of teeth.

We are keen to work with you in obtaining optimum oral hygiene for life and we can educate your children on the importance of brushing and help you encourage them to incorporate good daily oral hygiene habits.
Regular oral hygiene visits will help your teeth stay cleaner, last longer and can prevent painful problems from developing.

Carmen is our lovely hygienist. Children and adults adore her calm and friendly manner. We call her an Altona Gate Dental Hygiene Hero!
