Dental Hygiene

At Etwall Dental Practice, we operate on a philosophy of preventative care. While our team strives to meet your dental needs, you play an important role in keeping your smile healthy. Practising an effective oral hygiene routine at home can prevent dental problems from developing.

How do I keep my teeth and gums healthy?

Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride-based toothpaste. Floss your teeth at least once a day. You can also supplement your cleaning regime with an antibacterial mouthwash.

Limit your intake of sugary and starchy foods which are known to increase acidity levels in the mouth and result in cavities and gum disease.

How can your team support my oral hygiene routine?

At each check-up, your dentist examines your teeth and gums for signs of decay and gum disease. We also recommend twice-yearly cleaning appointments with a dental hygienist.

Even the most efficient at-home hygiene routine may leave plaque behind in hard-to-reach areas. Over time, plaque hardens into tartar, which can only be removed by a hygienist.

In around 30 minutes, your hygienist can perform a range of professional cleaning procedures to eliminate plaque and tartar build-up you may have missed when brushing between your teeth and around your gum line.

After each hygiene session, you’ll have a healthier mouth, fresher breath and your teeth and gums will look and feel cleaner.

Good oral health is critical to your overall wellness. Bacteria found in the mouth is linked to heart disease, diabetes and other complications.
