Dental Hygiene

Why is oral hygiene important?
Good oral hygiene is important because it prevents gum disease.
Gum disease is an infection of the gums, caused by plaque, a sticky film which collects at the gum line.

How do I prevent gum disease?

  • Brush at least twice a day using the correct brushing technique
  • Brush in between your teeth with the appropriate tools
  • Change your tooth brush and tools at regular intervals
  • Visit your dentist regularly
