Oral hygiene advice in Kingston
We all try to keep our bodies healthy, but oral health can often be neglected, despite the fact that it actually impacts our overall wellbeing. At Denison Dental, we’re committed to preventative intervention as well as general dentistry, so we always emphasise the importance of oral hygiene with our patients.
From brushing your teeth at least twice a day, to cutting out sugary foods and visiting your dentist regularly, we try to encourage good practices for healthier teeth and gums. The oral cavity is the start of the digestive tract and affects the rest of the body. As such, good oral hygiene may prevent heart and periodontal disease.
Benefits of oral hygiene
Daily brushing and flossing will remove harmful dental plaque and tartar from teeth, which can prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. By keeping on top of your oral health, you can avoid costly dental treatments in the future and save your own natural teeth, avoiding dental implants, dentures, or bridges.
Severe gum disease is a major cause of adult tooth loss, so it also pays to be vigilant to changes with your teeth and gums. Seek your dentist’s help if you think something’s wrong.
At Denison Dental, we offer expert dental hygiene services, as well as dental treatment. With an onsite oral hygienist.
