What is Oral Hygiene and Cleaning?

Oral hygiene includes the practice of keeping the mouth clean and free from all kinds of dental diseases and other related problems. It basically includes regular and thorough cleaning of teeth. It is important here to mention that skipping regular cleaning of teeth can cause major dental diseases such as tooth decay, gingivitis, periodontitis, etc. Prevention and routine care is the foundation of success when it comes to oral hygiene and cleaning.

 

At Splash Dental in Pickering, you can get the facility of professional cleaning, which includes the process of scaling. In this procedure, all the plaque and tartar, i.e., stubborn plaque, is removed from the upper and lower section of the gum line. In order to maintain optimal oral health, we suggest our patients come for scaling every three to four months.

What are the symptoms of oral problems?

Brushing teeth two times a day will not confirm healthy oral hygiene. In order to pay complete attention to the cleaning and hygiene of your mouth, there are some warning signs that can give you red flags, such as:

  • Loose teeth

  • Receding gums

  • The clicking of the jaw

  • Ulcers and sores in the mouth

  • Chronic bad breath

  • Bleeding of gums after flossing or brushing

  • Frequent dry mouth

  • Sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures

  • Cracked teeth

If you come across any of the warning signs mentioned above, you need to revise your oral health and cleaning routine.
