Dental Hygiene

We offer you the preventative approach to oral health that will help maintain your teeth for life

Our Dental Hygiene team form an integral part of our Margaret River practice. Hygiene plays a huge role in any dental health care routine and our Dental Hygienists work closely with our Dentist to provide fully integrated dental care. The Hygienist plays an important role in educating patients of all ages on the best ways to look after their teeth and gums, to help lower their risk of tooth decay, gum disease and related health problems.

AMR Dental is excited to bring the latest dental hygiene technology to our Margaret River practice. Our EMS AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master means you can now experience stain-free, clean teeth without the mess, uncomfortable noises and cold water. 

Why Is Oral Hygiene So Important?

Dental Hygiene Services AMR Dental Margaret River

Dental disease can be prevented. Daily brushing and flossing, a balanced diet and regular check-ups with your dentist can lower your risk of developing dental diseases and oral infections.

 

As oral health reflects general health, taking good care of your teeth and gums and following your dental hygienist’s instructions can also lower your risk factor for a variety of health problems.

Understanding how dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease start, and how to spot the warning signs, could help you to take better care of your oral health.

Our hygiene team are also on hand to provide advice on diet and other tips to prevent tooth decay in the future. This includes how you can care for your mouth using a toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, dental floss and interdental brushes, so you can take care of your teeth and gums between visits.

How often should I visit the Hygienist?

When it comes to visiting the Dental Hygienist, the golden rule is that you should schedule an appointment every six months. But, some factors affect the frequency of your visits like how well you take care of your teeth, your diet and also your genetic predisposition to gum disease.

Good oral hygiene tips

Taking care of your teeth and gums every day is the best way to keep plaque at bay and keep your smile sparkling. When you visit us for your check-up, your dental hygienist will let you know if your oral care routine needs to be improved and can offer more personalised advice.

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with flourodated toothpaste
