ORAL HYGIENE MAINTENANCE

Your oral health is important

WHAT IS THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF MAINTAINING ORAL HYGIENE?

The main objective of oral hygiene maintenance is to control the appearance of bacterial plaque, dental calculus and cavities.

Bacterial plaque

Bacterial plaque is a sticky layer attached to the teeth that has a high content of bacteria and food debris.

Root Canals

Dental cavities

Dental cavities are stains or cavities of bacterial origin that begin in the superficial part of the teeth (enamel) and that progress to the deepest tissues, causing serious problems in the teeth.

Oral hygiene

Dental calculus

The dental calculus is the hardened soft plaque that is impossible to remove with a simple tooth brush or dental floss.

HOW TO MAINTAIN GOOD ORAL HYGIENE?

Personal care

To control the appearance of bacterial plaque, tartar or cavities it is vital to brush your teeth3 times a day, use dental floss to remove food debris stuck in places where the brush cannot access, and use mouthwash.

Oral hygiene

Dental cleaning (prophylaxis) will be performed during your visit to remove the remains of bacterial plaque and prevent it from hardening.

Dental maintenance

If necessary, a deep dental maintenance will be scheduled.

Visit the dentist

You should visit the dentist every 3 months to receive professional evaluation of the state of your teeth and gums.

Following these steps you can avoid and/or control most common oral diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis and dental caries.

WHY IS GOOD ORAL HYGIENE SO IMPORTANT?

The teeth are attached to the jaws by supporting tissues, which include the gums, bones, cementum, and periodontal ligament.

When you do not perform good oral hygiene and do not visit the dentist every 3-4 months, irritating factors such as bacterial plaque and dental calculus spread to the deepest areas such as the roots, affecting all the supporting tissues.
