How can I tell if my teeth are healthy? What can I do to improve my oral hygiene?

The best way to find out if your teeth and gums are healthy is to visit your dentist every six months for check-ups and cleans. Some dental conditions, such as gum disease, are often present with no symptoms at all, so people don’t get treatment until the condition has progressed.

You can improve your oral hygiene by taking good care of your tooth at home, including twice-a-day brushing and once-a-day flossing. Because prevention is key to good oral health, regular check-ups and cleans at your dentist will also help you stay on top of your dental care.

We also invite you to talk to Dr Lincoln Huang and any of our experienced, friendly team members if you have questions about your oral health. Patients who are educated about proper oral hygiene tend to enjoy better oral health because they know how to take good care of their teeth and gums. We are happy to advise you on proper home care and to design a treatment programme based on your individual needs.

Are you overdue for a biannual check-up and routine clean? We warmly welcome new patients to our Seaforth, NSW dental clinic, and we look forward to seeing you and your entire family.
