What is preventive oral hygiene?
Preventive oral hygiene are the steps that can prevent many common dental problems from occurring by ensuring that the health of your smile is maintained.
How can I maintain my oral health?
While every patient is different, and some patients may require specialized programs, there are a few main areas that are always important to maintaining optimal oral health. Daily flossing and regular brushing are essential to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Additionally, every patient should visit a dental hygienist for a professional cleaning and checkup every six months. Frequency of your cleaning and checkup will depend on your dental history and the current status of your smile. Our knowledgeable dental team would be pleased to provide you with advice on how frequently you should have a professional cleaning and checkup.
