Oral Hygiene

At Sandy Bay Dental we focus on prevention which in turn creates minimal intervention and costly treatment plans. This empowers the patient to achieve and maintain optimal oral health creating smiles.

Research has displayed that poor oral hygiene can contribute to the development of heart disease, diabetes and stroke More commonly, poor oral hygiene can contribute to the development of gum disease or gingivitis. For these reason it is crucial to maintain a thorough oral care routine which should include:

  • Daily flossing
  • Brushing twice daily
  • A system of regular checkups every 6 months.

These check-ups are important to detect and treat any potential problems before they develop into more serious conditions. They should also include a professional clean and polish, because even the most well kept smile needs a professional touch. This will remove any tough plaque which cannot be dislodged through regular brushing.
