Oral Hygiene & Teeth Cleaning

Practicing good oral hygiene is the foundation of preventative dentistry. It is the practice of keeping one's mouth clean and free of diseases and other problems by regular teeth brushing and cleaning in-betweens. It is important that oral hygiene be carried out on a regular basis to prevent dental diseases such as cavities, gingivitis and bad breath.

Our dentists have a strong focus on educating our patients and are committed to the health and longevity of their teeth.

To establish an effective dental care regime, we at Dental Experts Center recommend the following:

  • Regular scaling and polishing (at least once per year).
  • Brushing your teeth daily (minimum twice per day)
  • Flossing at least once daily.
  • Mouth washing twice daily.
  • Keep a healthy diet with less sugar and carbohydrates consumption.

Scaling and Polishing:
No matter how well we brush or floss, there will always be parts of the mouth that can’t be reached without help. Dentists and Dental hygienists have years of training and all the needed equipment to thoroughly remove any plaque, calculus and surface staining on the teeth and prevent gum diseases.
It is recommended to perform dental cleaning every six months.

 However, people wearing braces or those with diabetes may be advised to have their hygiene appointments more frequently.
Routine Dental assessments are invaluable to carefully inspect your mouth, teeth and gum to identify potential risks as early as possible. We will be looking for signs of tooth decay, lose or broken teeth, damaged tooth fillings and crowns/bridges or gum disease.

 

Daily Teeth Brushing:
Brushing your teeth minimum twice a day with the proper technique and frequency will prevent cavities and gum diseases. Whenever teeth are not brushed correctly and frequently, it could lead to calcification of saliva minerals, forming tartar, if not removed every 24 hours, tartar hardens and is then referred to as calculus.

 

Dental Flossing:
Floss at least once per day to ensure leftover food debris stuffed between your teeth are removed to prevent the buildup of plaque.

 

Mouth Wash and Toothpaste:
Mouthwash and Fluoride Toothpaste are an effective of prevention method against tooth decay, gingivitis, as well as the support of healthy teeth and gums.

 

Here are some of the mouth-washing benefits:

  1. Freshens breath.
  2. Prevents Plaque build-up and removes particles.
  3. Stops the formation of cavities.

Mouthwashes that contain fluoride can prevent cavities and strengthen your enamel. Please note that not all mouthwashes contain fluoride. Be sure to check its label before purchasing.
With regular brushing, flossing, and mouth-washing you can maintain a good oral health while avoiding bad breath. Consult your dentist about the importance of mouthwash and find a strategy that works for you.

 

Healthy Diet:
What you consume and how often you eat impacts your oral health. We advise you to eat more nutritious foods to stimulate saliva and strengthen your enamel. Limit the consumption of edibles and beverages that are high in sugar and carbohydrates.

Practicing good oral hygiene habits makes you healthier and happier as it doesn’t only affect your teeth but your overall physical and emotional health.
