Dental Hygiene

Maintain the health of your smile with regular dental hygiene check-ups

Preventing serious oral health problems from occurring is the main focus of general dentistry. Regular visits, good care and maintenance at home as well as early detection of any problems can help to ensure your natural teeth stay healthy for life.

Good at-home care means: brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing at least once a day, drinking plenty of water and consuming less sugary foods and drinks. Drinking water will help to clean away food debris, especially after meals.

Your dental hygiene appointment

During your regular dental appointments, the Dentessential team will provide a complete scale and clean as well as educate you on how best to care for your teeth and gums. Regular visits will also help to make sure any problems are detected and treated early.

X-rays may be necessary to check between teeth and for abnormalities. These x-rays can be a great way to detect problems in their infancy and treat them before they become more serious. For example, it can be the difference between needing a filling and needing root canal therapy.

With children, it is important that they are introduced early to dental visits. Regular visits are required to monitor development and cleaning habits. Often if abnormalities or decay are caught early then the treatment can be minimal and less invasive.
