Dental Hygiene

Routine healthy habits such as brushing twice a day, flossing, and visiting your hygienist for cleaning visits help prevent decay and gum disease.

Preventing dental issues, like cavities can help secure your general health and boost your oral hygiene, for life.

How can I maintain my dental hygiene daily?

Dental hygiene starts at home with regular brushing and flossing followed by an antibacterial mouthwash.
You should also reflect on your daily habits and decide which ones are harmful to your oral health. The following behaviours should be stopped immediately:

  • Smoking and the use of other tobacco products
  • Heavy alcohol consumption
  • Overconsumption of acidic, coloured, or carbonated drinks
  • Consuming an excess of sugary, sticky foods

Also, keep in mind that other medical conditions, such as untreated diabetes and dry mouth could cause further damage to your dental health. Medications that affect your mouth and saliva production could also pose a risk to your dental hygiene. That’s why it is important to inform you dentist of all previous and current medical conditions. The more our team knows, the more we can do to protect your oral health.

Why is dental hygiene important for my health?

In many cases, poor oral health is a tell-tale sign of further, more serious issues located in other parts of the body such as cardiovascular problems or oral cancer. If despite all your efforts, you cannot improve the state of your oral health, you may also want to reach out to your general practice physician in addition to your dentist to get a general check-up.

Does the Pinner Green Dental team offer treatments that will better my dental hygiene?

A great way to augment your efforts is to keep up with your regular visits to the dentist. Even if you see no immediate concerns, check-ups are important. Your hygienist is trained to detect small implications that you cannot see or feel to diagnose any issue in the mouth.
