Dental Cleaning

Keeping your teeth clean and healthy is the best way to prevent tooth decay and other common oral health problems.

When you visit Swish Dental for your regular check-up, the experienced Dentists in Brisbane can also offer professional teeth cleaning and hygiene treatments. These can remove plaque that's built up since your last visit and help to protect your teeth against bacteria. They'll also offer personalised dental hygiene advice to you and your family, to help you take better care of your teeth and gums at home.

You don't have to be an existing patient at Swish Dental to have your teeth professionally cleaned. Book a dental hygiene appointment at our Everton Park or Mitchelton clinic today.

About Swish Dental

Professional Dental Cleaning

Brushing and flossing at home isn't always enough to keep your teeth free from harmful bacteria. If bacteria or leftover food gets trapped in hard-to-reach areas of your mouth, this can lead to a build-up of plaque that can cause tooth decay, gum disease and other problems.

That's why we recommend visiting the Dentists in Brisbane every 6 months for a professional clean and hygiene treatments. When it comes to your teeth and gums, prevention is always better than cure.

Do I need dental cleaning?

Dental cleaning

Even if you're brushing and flossing correctly, there may still be parts of your mouth that your toothbrush and floss can't reach. If plaque has already hardened on your teeth, you won't be able to remove it yourself.

Teeth cleaning can also help to freshen your breath and lift surface stains left by food, drink and tobacco. If you're dealing with an oral health problem such as tooth decay or gum disease, or you're at high risk of developing a condition, we may recommend dental cleaning as part of your treatment or preventive care.

What happens at my dental hygiene appointment?

When you visit our Everton Park or Mitchelton clinic, you'll meet the dentist who'll guide you through every step of your appointment so you know what to expect. This normally includes:

Oral health assessment

They'll check the health of your teeth and gums and look out for any possible signs of dental problems. This may involve x-rays to give us a closer look and help with our diagnosis. If they think you could benefit from a treatment, they can discuss your options and arrange a follow-up appointment.

Teeth cleaning

When you feel comfortable and relaxed, they can begin your dental cleaning treatment. This involves removing plaque and calculus deposits that may have accumulated on your teeth surfaces since your last hygiene visit.

Teeth polishing

When the plaque has been removed, they can polish your teeth using Air Flow. This technique uses a special powder, pressurised air and water to help remove stains from your teeth and restore their natural shade.

Fluoride treatment

The dentist will apply a fluoride foam at a safe concentration. This helps to strengthen the enamel of your teeth making them more resistant to tooth decay.

Home care advice

They'll discuss your daily dental hygiene routine and any areas that may need to be improved. They can demonstrate the correct brushing and flossing techniques, offer dietary advice or recommend products that could help you and your family to improve your oral health.

How often should I have my teeth cleaned?

The dentists recommend that you have professional dental cleaning every 6 months. This helps to prevent plaque from building up and can lower your risk of dental disease.

What are the risks?

Dental cleaning and hygiene treatments help to lower your risk of tooth decay, tooth loss and other problems.

While these treatments are safe, your teeth may feel more sensitive after cleaning. You should let the dentist know if you have sensitive teeth or gums so they can tailor your treatment to minimise discomfort.

What are dental implants?

What do hygiene treatments cost?

Check-up and clean appointments for adults and children are covered by most health funds. We'll make sure you have all the information you need about costs before you agree to any treatment. We also offer flexible payment plans.
