Do I need 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 our dental hygienist who'll guide you through every step of your appointment so you know what to expect. This normally includes:
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 our dental hygienist know if you have sensitive teeth or gums so we can tailor your treatment to minimise discomfort.
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.
