Dental hygiene is an important part of oral hygiene as well as overall health. Although brushing and flossing is part of your daily dental hygiene routine, it is still highly recommended to get a professional cleaning done. Getting your teeth professionally cleaned involves the removal of plaque, with the purpose of preventing cavities, gingivitis, periodontal diseases, bad breath, and helps maintain your healthy smile.
At Whitby Smile Centre we give a lot of importance to dental hygiene. Everyone experiences plaque buildup and should give attention to this matter. The saliva in your mouth, bacteria, and proteins together from a thin film layer that covers your teeth. When we eat, tiny particles from the food get stuck to the film, and start to create a build-up on the teeth, known as plaque. Be aware that not all plaque can be removed with the use of you tooth brush at home, that’s why getting your teeth cleaned at least twice a year is important to maintaining good oral hygiene.
