Good oral hygiene prevents plaque and tartar from developing on the teeth which can lead to tooth decay, cavities, and fillings. The two most common reasons for tooth loss are tooth decay and gum disease. It is common for patients to ignore bleeding gums, but this is an early sign of gum disease. Preventative care can stop tooth loss later in life and it is never too early to start. Regular check-ups with a dental hygienist can help you maintain good oral health. The dental hygienist will clean your teeth in a caring, professional manner, removing built-up plaque and tartar, which can cause bad breath, discolouration, and tooth decay.
There are many ways to ensure your mouth, teeth and gums remain healthy.
