This year for Dental Health Week (August 1st – 7th) the Australian Dental Association is asking Aussies to show their teeth some love!  
You might think it doesn’t really matter if you miss a bit of flossing, skimp on the thoroughness of your brushing, or tell your dental professional “thanks, but no thanks, I’ll see you in 2024”.  But of course, like anything that’s necessary and good for you, it does matter and it’s definitely worth adding to your list of daily To Do’s.

It only takes 2 minutes a day.  So why is daily flossing such a big hurdle to overcome?  Let’s be honest, it’s an annoying chore.  One we are required to perform at often inconvenient times of the day.  It’s not especially easy to complete and seems to make little difference to how our mouth functions […]

                Brushing your teeth.  Sounds simple right?  In reality, effective toothbrushing is a skill many adults struggle with.  In fact, 1 in 5 adult Australian’s do not routinely brush twice a day.  As dental professionals, we see patients having difficulty with their brushing on a daily basis.  Toothbrushing is a fundamental skill that requires ongoing effort and adjustment to […]
