What is Oral Hygiene?
In a nutshell, oral hygiene is the practice of keeping your mouth clean and free from bacteria and disease to prevent decay and the breakdown of your teeth. Oral hygiene involves a number of things including using proper brushing technique, regular flossing between meals, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthrinse. When you have a problem related to your teeth: if you have pain, you should consult with Dr. Trobough. Keeping up with your oral health is vital to your overall health, as well as maintaining your beautiful smile for years to come.
How Can You Improve Your Oral Hygiene Routine?
First things first, make an appointment with Dr. Trobough if you don’t have a dentist, or if you haven’t been to a dentist in awhile. The longer you wait to get your oral health under control, the longer it will take, and some damage might be irreversible. Next, get yourself a new toothbrush and start using proper brushing technique. Commit to brushing your teeth at least twice a day, and start flossing on a more regular basis, if you don’t currently floss. These can increase your risk of tooth decay. When you visit Dr. Trobough in our Las Vegas office, you’ll undergo a complete dental examination and have x-rays taken to determine the health of your teeth. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will be able to provide you with additional information on caring for your teeth and ensuring a good oral hygiene routine for the long run.
At Trobough Dental, we offer professional dental cleanings to all of our patients. These cleanings include the use of the latest technologies to perform superior cleaning services. As with every appointment, you’ll have a chance to ask questions about your oral health, and we’ll provide you with information about how to improve your oral hygiene routine. During your professional cleaning appointment, Dr. Trobough will examine your teeth for signs of any tooth decay, and make appropriate recommendations for a treatment plan. Sometimes, root planing is required to remove large amounts of tartar from patient’s teeths. This involves cleaning the root surface below the gumline in order to reduce the risk of developing gingivitis and other infections.
Fluoride is found in food and water, and it helps to remineralize our teeth when demineralization has occurred naturally. After your professional cleaning, you may be offered a fluoride treatment as a way to help build up the strength of your enamel and protect your teeth.
Sealants are often used in dental settings as a way to protect teeth. They are commonly used in children who may be prone to cavities and who have not yet had their adult teeth come in. Sealants are easily applied to the tooth’s surface and require no down time after the procedure is complete. If you are prone to tooth decay, you may want to consider sealants to help protect your teeth.
