Dental Hygiene

Dental Hygiene. Detect, Deter and Prevent.

Maintaining your dental hygiene is essential to avoiding dental problems and possibly serious health issues in the future. While regularly brushing and flossing is necessary, it is recommended that anyone over the age of four or five should visit their dental hygienist for a professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year.

Regular check ups and teeth cleanings are key to detecting and correcting initial problems such as cavities and gingivitis before they escalate into more serious issues. Good dental hygiene and regular checks will not only prevent problems long term, but will save you time, pain and money too!

Confident provides comfortable, fast and effective dental cleaning, and together with regular check-ups we can detect, deter and prevent future dental problems.

Everyone over the age of four or five should visit the dentist for a professional dental hygiene appointment twice a year. Our gentle and experienced hygienist will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for adults. The dental hygienists are specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease. We prefer to help you maintain optimal oral health so that you never have to worry about gum disease. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we're here to help you.

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

If we find cause for concern, we may recommend that you change your oral healthcare routine or the products you use at home. We may also suggest a deep cleaning, which involves:
  • Scaling to remove tartar from below the gum line
  • Root planing to smooth rough root surfaces where plaque builds up
  • Arestin antibiotic treatment to kill bacterial infection
Oral Hygiene Tips
  • Use a new toothbrush every 2-3 months. Why? Bacteria from your mouth hangs around on your toothbrush.
  • Brush your tongue (or if you're in the know, use a tongue scraper).
  • Buy multiple packs of floss and use them each day.
  • Chew sugar-free gum after eating to help promote saliva which helps wash away food particles.
  • The most important times of the day to brush your teeth: after breakfast and just before you go to bed.
