At Dr J.A. Chau Dental Surgeons, we believe in the importance of maintaining good oral health habits.
Maintaining your overall hygiene is important to ensure healthy teeth and gums. Regular visits to your dentist or hygienist, along with good dental habits at home will help keep your smile on track.

What you need to know
We recommend one appointment every six months. This is usually incorporated into routine examination appointments, however, some patients require more regular and/or deeper cleaning appointments with our hygienist (for example, 3 monthly). To support you in achieving your optimal oral hygiene standards, we will also share with you the best ways to care for your teeth at home and educate you on the best techniques for brushing and flossing.
Your appointment can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes depending on the type of hygiene service required. You may be asked about your medical and dental history and your usual dental cleaning routine at home.
