What is Good Oral Hygiene?

Good oral hygiene results in a mouth that looks, smells and feels healthy.

  • Your teeth are clean and free of debris
  • Gums are pink and do not hurt or bleed when you brush or floss
  • Bad breath is not a constant problem

Brushing your teeth and flossing removes food particles and plaque. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to clean 100% off your teeth with daily brushing.

Our dental hygienist is qualified as a preventative specialist, who can not only remove any plaque which has been left and hardened, but can also instruct you on the correct brushing and flossing techniques.

Not brushing effectively can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease, which is why it is important to have regular scaling and cleaning appointments by a dentist or dental hygienist.
