In conjunction with regular check-ups at our Cairns dental practices, it is important to maintain a proper at home care program to actively prevent the development of oral concerns.

Your daily oral hygiene routine should include:

Combining contemporary dental treatments with old world customer service, our Cairns based dentists take special care with our youngest patients to ensure their first memories of our practice are positive, comfortable and even fun!

Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day.

This should be performed with a soft bristled tooth brush. Position your brush at a 45 degree angle and brush in a gentle circular motion along all surfaces of your teeth and along the gum line.

Flossing your teeth every single day.

This is done to remove deposits of plaque from the surfaces of teeth that cannot be reached by brushing alone.

There are also some preventative treatments you may wish to consider to support the health of your child’s smile such as fissure sealants.
