Can Poor Oral Hygiene Be Cured in East Gwillimbury Area

Visiting the dentist regularly and taking care of the teeth and gums with brushing and flossing at home is the foundation of good oral health and wellness. However, some patients with dental anxiety may not see their dentist for routine appointments, and some may not prioritize their oral health and wellness. This is when problems can occur, including cavities and periodontal disease. At Harvest Hills Dental Care in East Gwillimbury, Ontario, our team can educate patients on what happens when oral hygiene is not managed correctly and what can be done about it.

Can poor oral hygiene be cured?

Poor oral hygiene can be remedied in multiple ways, depending on the severity of your condition. Generally, proper brushing and flossing habits can go a long way in restoring healthy dental hygiene. Additionally, regular visits to the dentist, at least every six months, are recommended for deep cleaning and any necessary restorations or treatments that may be needed. Utilizing mouthwashes and integrating them into your daily brushing and flossing routines can also help you take a step forward in combating bacteria that may remain in the mouth.

What are some recommendations for maintaining a healthy smile?

Taking care of your teeth and gums is easy with good daily oral and dental hygiene habits. These include:

  • Brushing your teeth twice each day for at least two minutes each time, using a fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing daily to remove both plaque and food particles
  • Using an interdental brush or water flosser regularly
  • Limiting consumption of sugary snacks and drinks
  • Rinsing with mouthwash after brushing
