Patient education, starting at a young age, will help keep you practising proper oral hygiene habits for a lifetime.
Good oral hygiene means following all the right steps to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. These steps include:
Your dentist will check for any early signs of infection or decay, or any overcrowding or other issues. We will also screen you for oral cancer.
It can be difficult to remove all the tartar and plaque that builds up on your teeth at home. Brushing and flossing cannot properly clean all the nooks and crannies of your teeth properly. Getting an Airflow® or hygiene clean will help rid those hard-to-reach places of any bacteria before the bacteria have a chance to multiply and cause infections and decay.
