Leichhardt St Dental Practice takes the health and safety of our patients and staff very seriously. The Dental Board of Australia has now ruled all dental practices are restricted to limited emergency treatment only.
From 1st April we have closed and hope to re-open 1st June. We are however available for limited emergency treatment by appointment.
If you are an existing patient of our practice, please contact us via our contact form , call / text Dr Barbara Szylkarski via her mobile or the practice answering machine, even if it is a quick question, chat or for some serious help.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon once this disruption is over, take care.
You have made a life changing step and decided it is time to floss your teeth, this guide will help you learn to floss your teeth.
It is highly recommend to floss daily. Flossing is important to remove plaque and debris from between your teeth- places where a toothbrush cannot easily reach.
Our favourite floss is Colgate total. There are similar flosses in other brands. The floss should be a ribbon shape rather than a cotton string shape. It should also have a thin wax coating so it can easily slide between your teeth.
Thicker flosses can be better at cleaning but they can be very difficult to use. If it becomes a chore to floss, you will no longer do it every day!
Flossing has been shown to decrease the spread of inflammatory cells into your blood stream, helping to improve your general health.
