Oral Hygiene and Professional Cleans at Kelmscott Dental

Oral Hygiene

It’s easy to maintain good oral health when you look after your teeth and gums every day. Our dentists and hygienists can provide you with advice for the best toothbrushing techniques, flossing tips and dietary habits for yourself or your child. We have a large team of experienced hygienists providing professional cleans to help keep plaque at bay. Our oral hygiene appointments at Kelmscott Dental include:

  • Professional clean and scale to remove plaque
  • Fluoride application to prevent further plaque build-up (if necessary)
  • Oral hygiene tips and advice

If we think you or your child could be at risk of tooth decay, we can also discuss preventive treatments such as fillings or fissure sealants to help protect your teeth.

Gum Disease

Gum disease (periodontal disease) is one of the most common reasons for tooth loss in Australia. The early stage of gum disease (gingivitis) can cause the gums to look red and swollen or bleed when you brush your teeth. In its more advanced stage (periodontitis), it can cause permanent damage to the gums, teeth and jaws. Gum disease treatment at Kelmscott Dental includes:

  • Oral hygiene treatments to reverse gingivitis
  • Root planing to remove plaque and calculus from around the gum line
  • Surgery to remove infected tissue (in more severe cases)

Custom Mouthguards

 If you or your kids play contact sports such as rugby, soccer, hockey or other activities like skateboarding that involve a risk of trauma to the mouth and jaw, wearing a custom-fitted sports mouthguard can significantly lower your risk of serious injuries.

The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends having a custom mouthguard fitted by a dentist instead of buying a generic mouthguard from a store, as custom mouthguards provide more protection. Talk to our dentists about sports mouthguards or night guards to help with teeth grinding, TMJ problems and sleep apnoea.

X-rays and Early Diagnosis

Regular check-ups with a dentist are recommended every six months and x-rays every 12 months. Both are important for identifying oral health concerns early. If you wait to go to the dentist when you’re already in pain, a condition has likely already developed and could be more complex and expensive to treat. You can avoid these nasty surprises by attending regular check-ups at Kelmscott Dental, which include:

  • Checking your medical history for any relevant details
  • Comprehensive assessment of your teeth, gums, jaw and soft tissues
  • Bitewing x-rays to check under the gumline
  • Discussing your treatment options and goals
