Oral Hygiene

Our teeth and gums are being challenged everyday by what we eat, drink and breathe in. For this reason a thorough oral hygiene routine is essential to keep your smile at its best and help prevent the onset of gum disease, decay and other issues. At Kelmscott Dental we recommend that any effective oral hygiene routine should include brushing twice daily, daily flossing and a system or regular comprehensive dental examinations.

Oral Hygiene Examinations

These examinations are essential in the early detection and prevention of any potential problems before they escalate. They should also include a professional clean and polish to remove any tough plaque which cannot be dislodged through regular brushing. Even the very best oral hygiene routine needs that professional touch.

What are the consequences of poor oral health?

The consequences of not practicing preventative dentistry are numerous, with the most common being the onset of gum disease; a serious and painful inflammatory disease of the support structures of your teeth.

If you don’t take care of your oral health on a daily basis plaque can build up in your mouth, which will quickly harden to form tartar. Tartar can only be removed by a professional, and the longer it lingers the more damage it can cause to the bones and ligaments around your mouth; therefore if you believe you have tartar buildup in your mouth you must contact us immediately to book an appointment to see one of our specialists.

How often should I brush and floss?

You should brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day, preferably first thing in the morning and last thing at night before sleeping. You may also wish to brush and floss after your lunch or evening meal, with a view to removing larger food particles that have become wedged between your teeth.

When should I arrange a checkup?

You should be visiting us twice a year as a minimum, therefore if you haven’t had an appointment with us for over six months it’s in your interests to arrange for one immediately. During your checkup we’ll recommend personal preventative dentistry techniques, specific to you.

If it’s been a while since you had a comprehensive dental examination, contact our friendly team to arrange a consultation and have your smile revitalised.
