Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene is the preventative maintenance of brushing and flossing your teeth.  Your dental care efforts should also be supported by regular visits to your dental therapist/hygienist at Seaside Dental Practice.  Your therapist/hygienist will provide expert care that thoroughly cleans your teeth, removing plaque and ensuring your gums remain as healthy as possible.

Remember, plaque is the leading cause of gum disease – keep your good dental health – visit your dental hygienist regularly.




Brushing Video
Use small circular movements with the brush held at 45 degrees to the tooth. Move systematically around the mouth. Remember to clean the inside surfaces and the biting surfaces. Dont forget behind the top and bottom teeth. A good technique will take 2 minutes.



Flossing Video
Debris accumulates between the teeth. If not removed, bacteria will develop and plaque will form. Use the floss with a back and forth motion and with a vertical action until all the plaque is removed.
Work the floss gently under the gum.
