20 Ways To Protect & Enhance Your Smile

  1. Book in at your dentist near me for regular check-ups. Visiting your dentist every six months will ensure any oral hygiene problems are stopped in their tracks with preventative dentistry.
  2. Don’t forget to floss every day! Ask your dentist in Caringbah for their tips on the best flossing techniques.
  3. Avoid overconsumption of caffeine. Drinks like coffee and tea can cause teeth staining. This can only be solved with cosmetic dentistry treatments and professional teeth whitening.
  4. Ditch sugary foods and choose healthy alternatives. This will reduce the risk of decaying teeth.
  5. Use an electric toothbrush. As all the best dentist Sutherland Shire knows, electric toothbrushes are the most effective for cleaning your mouth thoroughly.
  6. Get a hygiene treatment from your Dentist Shire every six months. At the Caringbah Dentist, our bulk billing dentist Caringbah offers effective and gentle hygiene treatments so your smile can look its best.
  7. Brush every morning and every night, for two minutes each time.
  8. Examine your mouth regularly. Many people brush their teeth, but forget to properly examine them in the mirror. Having a good look every morning will help you notice problems early.
  9. Stay up to date with the best dental advice by following our Caringbah Dentist blog.
  10. Drink sugary drinks through a straw, instead of straight out the cup. This will reduce the amount of sugar that makes contact with your enamel.
  11. Wear a mouthguard during high contact sports to protect and safeguard your teeth.
  12. Reduce your alcoholic beverage consumption.
  13. Investigate orthodontic or cosmetic treatment. Invisalign and braces can enhance the appearance of your smile. Straighter teeth may also help you to clean your teeth better and access hard-to-reach areas where plaque may be building up. Ask David Reid about our range of orthodontic and cosmetic treatments when you next visit.
  14. Avoid tobacco products.
  15. Exercise for 30 minutes every day. Maintaining a good level of fitness and engaging in exercise will improve all aspects of your health, including your oral health.
  16. Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables.
  17. Pay attention to the right side of your mouth. Most right-handed people will accidentally neglect the teeth on the right side of their mouth. Always give some extra care to these teeth (particularly the molars).
  18. Listen and enforce the advice given by your dentist near me – don’t just pretend to listen!
  19. Recognise the signs of early gum disease. Bleeding and inflammation in your gums could be an early sign of gingivitis, so you may want to book an appointment with your dentist Sutherland Shire to address the issue.
  20. Learn about how medicines can impact oral health. Some medicines have side effects that may weaken your teeth. You could still benefit from discussing this with your local dentist and seeing what can be done to counteract the damage.

Appointment Booking



The Caringbah Dentists will be deferring all non-essential dental treatment , based on advice from the Australian Dental Association to all dental practices in Greater Sydney.

Starting immediately, we will be deferring non-essential appointments from Saturday 10 July until further notice.

We do apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused you.

For all patients that have existing appointments, we will be in touch with you as soon as we can to reschedule your appointments.

During this lockdown, we know some of our patients will still need advice on their oral health and we are still here to help.

All of our dentists will be available to have telephone consults for our patients should you have any concerns. Please call 9525 0595 and our lovely receptionists can organise a time for one of our dentists to call you. This service is at no cost to you. We are here to help as much as we can.

The practice is still open for emergencies and your dentist will be able to advise you, should you need to come in for an appointment.
