Dental HealthGood oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for general health as well.
Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for general health as well. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, heart disease, strokes and more. Regular check ups and cleanings can prevent these problems as well as provide you with good oral hygiene. Regular teeth cleaning by a dental hygienist is recommended to remove tartar (hardened plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult for a patient to reach on his own at home.
Children’s (Pediatric) Dentistry places special importance in preventing tooth decay. Studies show that poor oral health care in children can lead to impaired school performance and poor social relationships. Therefore, Pediatric Dentists give advice on how to make teeth strong, the importance of developing healthy eating habits and other ways to prevent cavities from occurring. A dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child’s first birthday. Given at the first dental visit: Preventive home care (brushing/flossing/fluorides), information on thumb sucking and pacifier habits, advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counseling, and information on growth and development.
