At BayView Dental Arts, we work to make this experience as comfortable for you as possible. Taking these preventive measures can prevent decay and disease and help identify any problems that currently exist.

What is dental hygiene?

Dental hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth clean and free of diseases. Accomplishing this involves the continuous implementation of several steps, including brushing and flossing the teeth. Beyond that, going in for regular dental visits, check-ups, and cleanings are all vital for the upkeep of dental hygiene.

While people mostly associate dental hygiene with the teeth, it is equally important for the gums and even other parts of the body. When infections manifest in the mouth, there exists the risk that the bacteria will be carried by the bloodstream to other parts of the body, leading to unwanted events, such as heart disease or a stroke.

Your Routine Dental Care

Regular visits to the dentist may feel time-consuming, especially when everything seems okay inside your mouth. But an ounce of prevention can go a long way in helping to avoid more serious (and costly) problems (gum disease, cavities, infection, discoloration) from arising down the line. Most patients will require a routine cleaning and checkup every six months, regardless of age.

At-home dental care should also be an integral part of your oral hygiene routine. We recommend brushing with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste for 2 minutes twice a day. The toothbrush should be replaced every 90 days. You should also make sure to floss once a day and avoid high-sugar foods and drinks that can erode and stain the teeth.
