Oral hygiene is the preservation of your teeth and gums, to prevent oral health issues such as decay, gum disease, cavities, plaque, bad breath, and gingivitis. We advise regular brushing and flossing to better maintain vibrancy, strength, and well-being of your teeth and gums.
Preventative care helps our patients maintain healthy teeth and gums, and aids in the early detection of oral health issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. We offer professional teeth cleanings that gently, but thoroughly remove harmful plaque and calculus from the gum line and in between teeth. We use precision tools in our dental scaling and root planing procedures to effectively remove bacteria and debris from the areas that are often missed by regular brushing and flossing.
Your dentists or hygienist will provide you with oral hygiene tips such as:
- Consuming dairy products that contain high concentrations of calcium, which is the main component of teeth.
- Eating healthy foods such as vegetables, grains,and fruits, which naturally contain vitamin C and B, contribute to the health of your teeth and gums.
- Avoiding foods and drinks that are high in acidity and sugars, can greatly reduce the risk of enamel wear and cavities.
- Avoiding smoking, which can damage your teeth and gums, and may lead to gum disease.
