What is good oral hygiene?
Good oral hygiene habits result in a healthy smile that is free of plaque buildup, debris, persistent bad breath, and more. By practicing good oral hygiene, your teeth look and feel healthy and strong. You can typically tell when your oral hygiene is declining if you:
- Experience bleeding gums after brushing and flossing
- Suffer from constant tooth sensitivity
- Have tooth pain
- Feel pain when drinking or chewing
- Experience tooth loss
- Suffer from gum recession
- Have frequent bad breath
Without proper oral hygiene, you may experience uncomfortable dental problems down the road that require extensive and expensive treatments.
What are the consequences of bad oral hygiene habits?
Unhealthy habits can impact your oral hygiene down the road, ultimately forcing you to undergo dental work that could have been prevented with the right care. Fortunately, Dr. Yesina has plenty of tips and recommendations for keeping your entire mouth healthy for the future. Dr. Yesina performs deep cleanings and dental exams to help prevent serious dental concerns, such as:
- Gum disease
