The cornerstone of our practice at Dental On Hollywood is regular oral hygiene. We believe that a combination of twice-daily brushing and flossing at home, complemented by professional oral hygiene treatment at our dental clinic, prevents many unnecessary problems and leads to good oral health and by extension overall health. Here in Bondi Junction, we provide thorough cleans and oral hygiene advice for kids and adults alike, to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy.
Brushing a minimum of twice daily, paired with regular use of floss (or “Piksters” for people who struggle to floss) has been proven to prevent a variety of dental problems and help to maintain the health of your teeth, gums and oral cavity. These measures are aimed at keeping bacteria levels low and minimising the build-up of plaque, which stops cavities developing in your teeth and prevents your gums from bleeding and ultimately receding. Even with excellent at-home oral hygiene, the build-up of plaque or formation of cavities in some people can be inevitable. For this reason we recommended six-monthly or annual visits to the dentist for professional cleaning and maintenance of good oral health.
