Good dental hygiene is vitally important as it is the best way to keep your teeth, gums and mouth clean, healthy and looking at their best. It is also a vital way to prevent tooth decay, gum disease and many other dental problems.
When you visit Real Good Dental, your dentist will assess the condition of your mouth, teeth and gums and advise you on any dental hygiene treatments you need. These will most likely include cleaning your teeth to remove plaque and tartar (a process commonly known as scaling and polishing). Tartar is hardened plaque that can irritate gum tissues and lead to tooth decay, gum disease, staining and, potentially, tooth loss. Scaling and polishing is usually a pain-free process, although, if necessary, pain-killing medication can be provided. A professional clean can help prevent gum disease and tooth loss, make teeth and gums healthier and cleaner and prevent bleeding. It will make your mouth feel fresher. A regular visit to the dentist for a dental hygiene treatment is vital for healthy teeth, however it must be combined with an effective day-to-day dental hygiene routine involving brushing and flossing. Your Real Good dentist will provide the advice you need to keep your teeth healthy between visits.
