Hygiene

Proper oral hygiene is the key to healthy mouths and plays a role in preventing the need for restorative dental work.

What to know about dental hygiene:

  • Obtain professional dental cleanings at least twice a year
  • At hygiene appointments, your teeth are professionally cleaned by a dental hygienist with the combined used of hand scalers as well as ultrasonic scaling.
  • Plaque and tartar buildup is caused by growing bacteria biofilms. 
  • Frequent removal and disturbances of these biofilms, along with the maintenance of good oral hygiene habits, helps keep the oral cavity healthy.
  • Toothbrushing and flossing are the best methods to disturb and remove plaque bacteria daily.
