Dental Hygiene, Teeth Cleaning
At Noble Dentistry we know that prevention is far better than curing a problem before it gets out of hand, and following a daily dental hygiene routine will ensure that you have healthy teeth and gums. This means improved self-confidence and wellbeing.
Failure to follow a daily dental hygiene routine can lead to bad breath, tooth decay and other dental problems which can require costly and lengthy treatment.
Dental check ups can spot the early signs of tooth decay or some other dental conditions. Usually these conditions can be dealt with before they become a serious health problem. If these issues are not treated they can develop into something more serious such as a loss of teeth, or infection.
Your smile is a part of who you are and is one of the things people notice first. Keep in mind that a daily dental hygiene routine will not only make you feel better , but it can also save you time and money in the long run.†Our dentists also perform teeth cleaning in cases of built up. You should regularly get your teeth cleaned every 3-4 months, this is an important factor in helping keep your teeth healthy.
Dental Hygiene Tips
Here are some easy ways you can maintain good oral hygiene on your own:
- Brush twice a day, every day.
- Ensure that your brushing method is accurate and you brush all surfaces of your teeth for at least 2 minutes.
- Flossing is an integral part of maintaining dental hygiene, as it allows you to clean the area between your teeth that your tooth brush canít reach.
- Use a mouthwash daily, at least once, to let fluoride strengthen your teeth, keep your gums healthy and to give you fresh, clean breath!
Your dentist can help you improve and maintain your dental hygiene by doing a thorough examination of each tooth and your gums. If any infection is suspected, X-rays can be done to confirm the presence of a cavity or infection and an appropriate treatment is then advised. Swollen or reddened gums probably mean that you arenít brushing properly and if hardened calculus or tartar is present, ultra sonic scaling would be needed to remove the deposits to improve the health of your gums and to prevent periodontal disease from developing. You can also ask your dentist the best way to brush your teeth and what else you can do to keep your gums and teeth healthy.
