Oral Hygiene Check Up
Your oral hygiene is very important to your oral health. A thorough oral hygiene check up removes the bacteria from your teeth and gums helping to maintain good oral health. We recommend 6 monthly preventative care check ups with your dentist, this includes an examination to identify and treat potential dental issues before they escalate and a professional clean and polish to remove the hard build up of plaque that regular brushing can miss.
A oral hygiene routine also involves consistent oral care, including brushing your teeth with a soft bristle tooth brush twice daily as well as flossing between the teeth once a day. Using a mouth wash will also help prevent bacterial plaque that cause gingivitis and bad breath.
