Oral Healthcare Q & A
What is good oral hygiene?
Good oral hygiene consists of brushing and flossing properly to effectively remove plaque and other debris from your teeth and in between your gums. Using mouth rinses in conjunction with brushing and flossing can reduce tooth decay by as much as 40%.
Taking good care of your oral and dental hygiene can help you keep your teeth as you age in addition to preventing a host of issues such as gum disease, bad breath, and tooth decay.
What happens during a routine teeth cleaning session?
Besides brushing and flossing daily to keep calculus to a minimum, the American Dental Association states people should visit their dentist for a routine exam and teeth cleaning twice a year.
A routine dental exam and teeth cleaning entails a thorough assessment of your teeth and gums to see if there any visible issues such as tooth decay or gum disease. Following this, x-rays may be taken to see what is happening inside of your teeth.
Dr. Blaustein and his team use special tools and equipment to clean your teeth and remove plaque buildup and tartar.
A deep cleaning of your teeth can improve your oral health by:
- Getting rid of stains
- Ability to detect cavities or other dental problems
- Removing calculus in places your toothbrush and flossing missed
Continuing to get your teeth cleaned and having a dental exam places a crucial role in preventing gum disease and keeping your teeth healthy for your lifetime.
What can I do to keep up with my oral health?
By simply practicing consistency when it comes to brushing and flossing, you can keep your gums perfectly pink and your teeth shining. In addition, Dr. Blaustein recommends you limit your intake of sugary beverages and foods since the bacteria that cause tooth decay to increase due to sugars.
Consistently caring for your teeth and gums along with coming into Chelsea Dental Aesthetics for your teeth cleaning is crucial because more than 90% of all systemic diseases produce oral symptoms according to the Academy of General Dentistry. Due to this, teeth cleaning is one of the best preventative ways to keep your well-being high.
