Dentists describe the best dental hygiene routine for all patients

Dental Hygiene in East Gwillimbury area

At Harvest Hills Dental Care of East Gwillimbury, Ontario, patients have the opportunity to learn from dental professionals about the benefits of taking good care of their teeth and gums. But they might not know how. Our doctors can educate patients on keeping their smiles healthy outside of routine dental visits.

How can I keep my smile healthy?

There are several key steps to maintaining good dental hygiene that dentists recommend for all patients, regardless of age or oral health status. These include:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice each day with fluoride toothpaste. Brushing your teeth is an effective way to remove plaque and debris from the surface of your teeth.
  • Flossing daily. Flossing cleans between the teeth where food particles might accumulate and contribute to tooth decay and infection.
  • Using mouthwash. With various options on the market, dentists may recommend specific mouthwashes depending on a patient’s needs. Mouthwash helps to kill bacteria and freshen the breath.
  • Eating a balanced diet that integrates plenty of healthy foods. An appropriate diet contributes to overall health, including dental health. Foods that have calcium, like most dairy products, can help strengthen teeth. Foods that are very high in sugar, like candies and sodas, can increase the risk of tooth decay.
  • Avoiding smoking and tobacco use. Both smoking cigarettes and using tobacco products can have severe consequences on oral health, including yellowing teeth, bad breath, periodontitis, and even oral cancer.
  • Regular dental check-ups and cleanings. Visiting our dental team every six months for a routine check-up and cleaning is essential for maintaining good oral health. Dentists then can identify any potential problems early on and provide necessary treatments.
  • Call when problems arise. Calling our team of professionals when problems arise can assist in catching issues early enough for successful intervention.
