Caring for Mouth

At Blairgowrie Dental care we have four fully trained and highly experienced hygienists – Michelle Taylor, Gail McIntyre, Nikki Muir and Jo Shepherd. Along with your dentist, our hygienists will work with you to develop an oral hygiene routine which will give you a happy and healthy mouth.

Here are a few handy hints to help impress your hygienist and dentist at your dental appointments –

We recommend that you:

  • brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Children up to three years old should use a toothpaste with a fluoride level of at least 1000ppm (parts per million). Three-year-olds to adults should use a toothpaste that contains 1350ppm to 1500ppm of fluoride.
  • clean in between your teeth with 'interdental' brushes or floss - brushing alone only cleans up to about 60 percent of the surface of your teeth.

However even the ‘Best Brusher’ has areas that they miss. Regular dental hygienist appointments are required to remove the plaque and tartar in those harder to reach places preventing cavities, inflammation, and gum disease.

If you have any questions or concerns about your mouth please speak to your dentist or hygienist.
