Dental Hygiene

Dental hygieneDental hygiene is important if you wish to take care of your teeth.
Plaque (a sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits build up on the teeth over time and if allowed to accumulate it will provide the right conditions for bacteria to thrive. If left untreated this will cause gum disease and decay.
The dentist will advise you on how to clean your teeth correctly and will scale (scrape away build-up) and polish the teeth on a regular basis. This is a painless process and essential if you wish to ensure your oral hygiene is at its best. You will also be advised on the best toothpastes, inter dental cleaning methods and products.
