Preventative oral hygiene is the oral care that helps to prevent many serious dental problems by ensuring that the health of your smile is maintained.
How can I ensure that my oral health is optimal?
Since each patient's smile is different, the best oral care routine is one that is personalized to your needs.
However, there are a few main areas of oral care that are crucial to maintaining optimal oral health. Daily flossing and regular brushing are always necessary to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
In addition, everyone should visit a dental hygienist for a professional cleaning and dental examination regularly. The recommended frequency of your cleanings and examinations will always depend on your dental history and the current health of your smile.
Our caring dental team would be pleased to provide you with personalized advice on how frequently you should have a professional cleaning and examination.
