Did you know that daily oral hygiene plays a significant role in your overall health and wellbeing? Brushing and flossing combined with regular dental visits prevent gum disease, infection, tooth loss, and systemic issues. The result of poor dental habits is often built-up plaque that can lead to periodontal disease, a gum infection that can spread to the jawbone and is linked to heart disease.
At every age, regular daily care of the mouth and gums is important. To have good dental health, you need a mix of personal dental care and the care of your dentist. Our dental hygienists are trained to detect, treat, and prevent gum disease and are experts in preventive care. Our expert dentists create treatment plans to maintain or restore patients’ oral health.
As part of good dental care, your routine should include brushing, flossing, and careful nutrition. However, it’s important to understand the proper technique of brushing and flossing to maintain a beautiful, healthy smile for life. As dental professionals, it’s our job to educate our patients on proper oral care. Check out our tips for great oral hygiene below.
