We talk a lot about dental hygiene for you and your family, but that’s because it’s just that important. Taking care of your teeth is going to reward you with a healthier, more confident smile that you’re always proud to share with others. Keeping it that way comes from regular dental hygiene practices both inside and outside of our dental office. What you do at home is just as important as what we do for you at Desert Dental. It’s important to remember that brushing twice a day (usually before and after bed) and flossing once is your best defense against harmful bacteria that can cause damaging plaque and tartar.
Coming to the office for a dental hygiene visit every six months is going to give your smile health and that added boost or bonus. Let’s face it, no matter how much you brush and floss, there are spots in your mouth that regular at-home care can’t reach. Your dental hygienist has special tools like a Sonic Scaler that can safely remove tartar and plaque buildup from your teeth before they lead to deterioration or damage. No scraping required! Don’t risk your smile health because you don’t feel like coming to the dentist! Checkups and cleanings are your #1 defense against all of the issues that can arise in our mouth.
