London, ON patients learn the importance of proper dental hygiene
We all want beautiful, healthy smiles. Good dental hygiene habits are necessary to maintain optimal oral health. Dr. David Favell and his staff at Downtown Dental Centre Family Practice in London, ON provide preventative and restorative dental care. A healthy smile is a beautiful smile.
Dental hygiene requires a good partnership
Good oral hygiene habits require regular brushing, flossing and rinsing. As you take care of your teeth, if you notice an issue, contact your dentist immediately. The earlier issues are addressed, the better the outlook. Patients also need to visit the dentist twice a year or as recommended based on your personal needs.
Besides contributing to a beautiful smile, the benefits of following good oral habits include:
- Oral health contributes to overall health.
- Good dental health ensures strong teeth, healthy gums and fresh breath.
- Visiting the dentist regularly helps to catch and treat problems early.
- Taking proper care of your teeth and gums helps to prevent periodontal disease.
During your visit, the hygienist cleans the teeth with specialized instruments to remove tartar and plaque. Fluoride may be used as an added protection for your teeth. Your dentist assesses your teeth to spot issues such as decay or signs of periodontal disease. X-rays may be taken periodically to check the structure of your teeth and gums. At our practice, each patient is treated as an individual with unique teeth, different problems, and personalized treatment plans.
