At Green Oak Dental Centre, our mission is always to help you reach and maintain the best possible oral health through diagnostic assessment, prevention, and education. This is done through a two-step process which involves Assessment and Professional Cleaning,
While your eyes are the window to the soul, your mouth is a port of entry for infection by allowing harmful bacteria to enter the bloodstream. This can result in more inflammation in other parts of your body, such as the heart and lungs.
To maintain a good oral hygiene care regimen you should brush your teeth at least two times each day using fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash once daily, eat healthy foods, avoid sugary treats, eliminate the use of tobacco products and schedule regular visits.
Based on this, as you can see, good oral hygiene is more than just brushing your teeth. It’s about maintaining a regimen. Your oral hygiene appointments assist us in early detection of oral cancer and other dental issues. Moreover, it provides us with an opportunity to remove stubborn plaque and tartar buildup, and discuss how your lifestyle can affect your oral health. Hygiene services begin here, but they must always be followed by proper brushing, flossing, and healthy eating at home.
