Oral Hygiene Glen Waverley

If you have a toothache, you can’t eat the foods you like and the pain may ruin your entire day.

If you have bad breath, no one likes talking to you, and some of your friends may keep their distance from you.

These two common dental problems are the result of poor dental care. 

If you would like to keep your smile bright and pain-free and your breath fresh, you should always maintain good oral hygiene habits.

Healthy Gums and Healthy Teeth

In the past, maintaining healthy teeth and gums has been underestimated. As a consequence, many people are at risk of developing gum disease, and this oral health condition has a grave implication on your dental health. The truth is, healthy teeth rely on healthy gums.

Gum disease also called periodontal disease, is caused by the plaque build-up and bacterial toxins accumulated underneath the gum line. If not professionally removed and treated, the plaque and bacteria can damage the gums and jawbone that support your teeth.

To keep your gums healthy, you need to remove plaque build-up and bacterial toxins by doing the following steps:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time. You can ask your dentist which type toothbrush is best to use. A soft-bristled toothbrush is often recommended, as they are not hard on your teeth and gums.
  • Floss your teeth once a day to clean the spaces where your toothbrush can’t reach.
  • Avoid brushing your teeth too hard as this can damage your gums. Your dentist or dental hygienist can show you the proper techniques of brushing your teeth.

If the build-up of plaque is not removed regularly, it can infect the bones and destroy your gums and jaw. In advanced periodontal disease, which is referred to as periodontitis, bone mass is lost. As a result, teeth will become loose resulting in tooth loss.

This is the reason regular dental visits are important. Your dentist will remove the plaque and calculus to keep your gums in great condition. Healthy gums are pink in colour, no redness or inflammation, no bleeding when flossing or brushing, and no tenderness or pain. Healthy gums are vital for your teeth and to your overall wellbeing.

Had a wisdom tooth extracted by Dr Lydia Tseng a month ago. Was extremely nervous but she was so very kind and gentle, I dare say I was pleasantly surprised with the entire procedure. All thanks to this super patient dentist. Thank you so much. I might actually be nearly happy about my next visit 🤞🏼😆

Our family have already attended the EK dental surgery with Dr. Lydia for a couple of years. Dr. Lydia is our best choice after compared with other dentists, especially on children’s dental care. She is very patient and very professional on children’s noncooperation. She explained the treatment clearly and given us good advice. She is always gentle when checked teeth. She used a lot of strategies to help my son for relaxing and be comfortable while filling a tooth. My son was very resistant to see dentist because he had a bad experience in another clinics before, but Dr. Lydia was very patient and given my son a lot encouragement. I highly recommended Dr. Lydia
