Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean to prevent dental problems, most commonly, dental cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good, they make it possible to eat and speak properly.
Daily preventive care, including proper brushing and flossing, will help stop problems before they develop and is much less painful, expensive, and worrisome than treating conditions that have been allowed to progress.
Regular dental visits are important because they can help spot oral health problems early on when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. They also help prevent many oral problems from developing in the first place. Visiting your dentist regularly is also important because some diseases or medical conditions have symptoms that can appear in the mouth. Even if you don't have any symptoms that may appear obvious to you, you should still see your dentist regularly for check-ups as you may have severe problems that only a dentist can diagnose. Regular visits to the dentist can also help prevent any issues from developing. Keeping your mouth healthy is essential to your overall health.

Have you lost a tooth or had a tooth removed and then didn't do anything to replace it? Missing teeth are not only inhibiting to your sense of confidence for their aesthetic but they are also bad for your oral health.
Missing teeth lead to bone loss in the jaw - it happens over time, but it does happen. This can then lead to wrinkles and facial disfigurement. Not only being unattractive, a missing tooth leaves an open space between remaining teeth. This, in turn, causes additional pressure on the remaining teeth and pushes them all at an angle. These remaining teeth push on the gum and the jaw and eventually become loose themselves - leaving you without even more teeth.
So don't leave your tooth gap unattended for another moment longer - make an appointment today, to discuss your options in rebuilding your oral health today!
Some think that the only bad side to having crooked teeth is the appearance. Apart from appearance, crooked teeth can cause complications and long-term oral health problems if left untreated.
Some of the issues caused as a result of crooked teeth include interference with proper chewing, make proper teeth hygiene a challenge, causing the risk of tooth decay, and gum disease. Crooked teeth can also increase the strain on other teeth, muscles and your jaws - causing a risk of chipped or broken teeth.
Correcting crooked teeth and bad bites can also lead to improving speech impediments, breathing problems, chewing and eating, and can help alleviate associated issues with teeth grinding and clenching.
If you have crooked teeth or a bad bite, stop delaying seeking treatment, as the condition may not be as harmless as you might think.

Bad breath, halitosis, can result from poor dental health habits and may be a sign of other health problems. Bad breath can also be made worse by the types of foods you eat and other unhealthy lifestyle habits.
If you don't brush and floss teeth daily, food particles can remain in your mouth, promoting bacterial growth between teeth, around the gums, and on the tongue. This causes bad breath. Antibacterial mouth rinses also can help reduce bacteria.
In addition, odor-causing bacteria and food particles can cause bad breath if dentures are not properly cleaned.
Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Bacteria cause the formation of toxins to form, which irritate the gums. If gum disease continues untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone.
Other dental causes of bad breath include poorly fitting dental appliances, yeast infections of the mouth, and dental caries (cavities).
The medical condition dry mouth (also called xerostomia) also can cause bad breath. Saliva is necessary to moisten the mouth, neutralize acids produced by plaque, and wash away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. If not removed, these cells decompose and can cause bad breath. Dry mouth may be a side effect of various medications, salivary gland problems, or continuous breathing through the mouth.
If you suffer from bad breath, contact us now so we can diagnose its origins and treat the issue for you. Start yourself on your new path to self-confidence and carefree living.
Zoom! Whitening is a widely used bleaching process used to lighten discolouration of enamel and dentin.
Tooth discolouration may result from drinking tea, coffee, cola drinks and red wine. Smoking, and the aging process can also darken your teeth.
The Zoom! in-chair whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp to activate the 25% hydrogen peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, Oxygen enters the enamel and dentin bleaching the stained substances whilst leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.
At Bondi Dentistry, prior to commencing Zoom! Whitening, a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums is carried out to ensure that your mouth is in proper health, and sound advice is given depending on the patient's lifestyle and habits.
The Zoom! Whitening procedure is also carried out in situations where teeth need to be whitened in order to match the shade of porcelain veneers or other cosmetic dental work.
