What is a good oral hygiene?
Preventative care is an integral part of our practice. Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good; they make it possible to eat and speak properly.
Proper tooth brushing and flossing techniques are the fundamentals in ensuring excellent oral health. Brush your teeth at least twice daily but preferably after every meal and flossing once a day.
Flossing once a day helps prevent gum disease by removing food particles and plaque at and below the gum line as well as between teeth, areas your toothbrush cannot reach and also stimulates your gums decreasing your chances of developing gum disease and tooth decay.
Giving people the smile they want is our passion!
