Oral Hygiene

Good oral care is essential

At Dental Studio, we recommend that patients practice good oral hygiene every day to maintain a healthy smile.

Brushing your teeth doesn’t guarantee that your mouth is receiving the attention it needs. Disease causing bacteria and tooth decay can be prevented by following good oral care such as brushing twice a day, flossing after meals and using mouthwash.

Oral Hygiene

Research has shown that dental problems can be related to other health problems such as heart disease, dementia and diabetes. This is one of the many reasons why we encourage patients to go for regular oral hygiene check up to help prevent gum disease.

Here are 3 brushing tips to help maintain good oral hygiene:

  1. Use a decent toothbrush: select a toothbrush that has a head and bristles small enough to reach into the crevices of your teeth to remove food.
  2. Correct brushing technique: make sure you are brushing at a 45 degree angle and make circular strokes across the teeth.
  3. Brush long enough: we recommend that patients brush their teeth for at least 2 minutes twice a day to ensure that your teeth are cleaned correctly.
