Oral Hygiene Tips

Typically, oral hygiene visits are scheduled every six months with your regular dentist. This can help prevent many of the problems that lead to tooth decay and loss, and it is important in the early diagnosis and treatment of gum disease.

Depending on your situation and dental health, your visit to the dentist may include any number of different procedures. It is important that we make sure you understand that your dental hygiene should begin at home. You will be shown how best to clean your teeth, floss and maintain healthy gums. This way, we are preventing problems in later life rather than treating them.

Show Your Teeth and Gums Some Love

Gums are certainly not the first things that you think about when considering dentistry, yet healthy gums are needed for a healthy smile! Healthy gums need to be maintained to keep your teeth well positioned and stable. Gum disease can begin with no apparent reason and can remain unnoticed for a considerable amount of time. Occasional bleeding and soreness can lead to the gums receding and teeth becoming unstable. This problem is treatable and can be prevented by taking good care of your gums and regular visits to your dentist.

It's important to continue your dental hygiene appointments whilst undergoing orthodontic treatment. Please call All Orthodontics today to learn more about how you can care for your teeth and gums.
