FAQs

  • What can I do at home to prevent cavities and gum disease?

    Regular dental hygiene services to clean the calculus and plaque from your teeth are very important. However, if you are not brushing your teeth and flossing your teeth every day, dental diseases like decay and gum disease are much more likely to develop.

    The ideal home-care routine is to brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day and to floss once daily.

  • Should I be using a manual toothbrush or an electric toothbrush?

    We generally recommend an electric toothbrush, mainly because the brush head does all the brushing work for you. You just have to concentrate on getting the bristles in the correct area on your teeth. The small head of an electric toothbrush is great for getting into the difficult-to-reach areas of your mouth, and many have two minute timers which ensures you are spending the recommended amount of time cleaning your teeth.

  • What age should I bring my child in for their first dental appointment?

    We recommend that children come in for their first routine dental appointment around the age of two, just to get used to the dental setting and have a ride in the chair. This allows us to keep an eye on their dental development from a very early age. There are often signs of dental crowding as early as the age of two and three, and early intervention is often possible at this time.

    If you are concerned about the teeth of your baby or young toddler, please don’t wait until they are two before bringing them in. We will gladly provide treatment to very young children if it is required.

  • Can I just use the whitening toothpaste and forget about the professional whitening option?

    Whitening toothpastes are slightly more abrasive than other toothpastes, and are able to clean surface stains away a little more effectively. However, this is not truly whitening: the toothpaste does not contain whitening ingredients that can penetrate the enamel, as these chemicals are carefully regulated in Australia, and not available in over-the-counter preparations.

    Even if a whitening toothpaste contained a professional strength whitening agent with the power to penetrate enamel, brushing for two minutes twice a day could not possibly achieve the same effects as an hour of professional in-chair whitening, or many hours of take-home whitening.
