Brushing, Flossing & Regular Cleaning by a Dental Hygienist Near You

In medicine as well as dentistry, prevention is always better than cure. Nothing is more important in dental health than dental hygiene.

Dental hygiene is the practice of keeping the gums, teeth, and mouth clean and healthy to prevent tooth decay and disease. Oral health and dental hygiene are too often taken for granted but should be part of our daily routine.

Tooth Decay

Cavities (tooth decay) are problematic for people of all ages. For children, untreated tooth decay can cause poor appearance, absence from school, difficulty concentrating on learning, and pain. These problems can greatly affect their quality of life and the ability to succeed. Tooth decay also is a problem for many adults, mostly because of poor dental hygiene practices.

Gum Disease Treatment in North York

Periodontal (gum) disease results from bacteria under the gum tissue which begin to destroy the bone and gums. Teeth can become loose and may need extraction, and chewing often becomes difficult. Our gum disease specialist is proud to offer periodontal disease treatment.

Many adults and children avoid proven dental hygiene measures to prevent oral diseases while reducing their dental care costs. Daily brushing and flossing, mouthwash, and regular visits to a dental hygienist are the chief preventative measures to ensure dental health. Dental sealants are also effective in preventing cavities to teeth in the rear.

Proper Dental Hygiene

Here are some measures parents should implement to ensure good oral health for their child:

  • Encourage your children to eat regular nutritious meals and avoid frequent between-meal snacking.
  • Have regular teeth cleaning by a dental hygienist
  • Protect you and your child’s teeth with fluoride.
  • Use a fluoride toothpaste. Seek advice from a dentist or dental hygienist before presenting fluoride toothpaste to children under two years of age
  • If your public water is not fluorinated, consult a dentist or dental hygienist about how to protect your children’s teeth.
  • Consult your child’s dentist or dental hygienist about dental sealants
  • Floss teeth regularly
