Dental Hygienist in Midland

Dental Hygienist Midland

Healthy mouth, healthy gums, healthy smile

Although you may follow a very meticulous at home oral hygiene routine of brushing twice a day and flossing, it’s still important to schedule a dental hygiene appointment with the Helena Street Dental Midland team every six months.

Plaque is a clear sticky film on the surface of your teeth and gums that contains bacteria. It’s this bacteria that reacts with the sugar and starch in food to create acid, which erodes tooth enamel and leads to the development of cavities.

Additionally, when plaque is not removed by daily brushing it hardens to become tartar, which cannot be removed by the bristles of a toothbrush or dental floss.

If left untreated, tartar can lead to the development of gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

A scale and clean hygiene appointment with our dental hygienist at Helena Street Dental Midland, through the use of very fine instruments is able to clean below the gum line and remove any tartar build-up.

If you have never had a hygiene appointment or it’s been over six months since your last one, call our friendly team today on (08) 9250 3100. You can also visit our practice at 2/42 Victoria Street, Midland WA 6056.
