Dental hygiene consultations provided by Milton, ON dentist for clean and healthy smiles
Good dental hygiene treatment does more than keep cavities and gum disease at bay. It also helps keep your teeth sparkling and your breath fresh so you can feel confident about your smile in any situation. Most people know they should brush and floss each day, but did you know there are specific techniques you should use? At Scott and Derry Dental Care, our team of dental professionals provides dental hygiene consultations to patients in the Milton, ON so they can make the most out of their daily dental care routine.
The proper brushing technique
Brushing your teeth twice per day for two minutes each time will help keep your teeth and gums free from decay and disease. It is essential to cover all surfaces of every tooth when you are brushing. We know that those hard-to-reach areas in the back of the mouth are particularly difficult to brush, so we are happy to show you the best way to reach those areas with hands-on practice at our office. In addition, we can show you:
- Which motion to use for the toothbrush on the different surfaces of the teeth for the best results
- The angle of the toothbrush that will help reduce bacteria and plaque buildup near the gums
- How to identify when your toothbrush needs to be replaced
Cleaning between your teeth
Flossing or using another type of interdental cleaner is an important daily habit for preventing gum disease and decay between your teeth. There are a wide variety of options available to clean between your teeth if you find traditional floss cumbersome to use. We can walk through these choices and how to use them during a hygiene consultation.
