Dental Hygiene Appointments in South Vancouver
Dental hygiene appointments are essential for keeping your teeth healthy and clean for life. Even with meticulous at-home brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can build up over time in the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. Dental hygienists have the tools and skills to remove that buildup to prevent tooth decay and other long-term problems with your teeth.
What to Expect During a Dental Hygiene Appointment
During your dental hygiene appointment, your teeth will be professionally cleaned, polished, and flossed for a full-mouth clean feeling. You may also receive a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth and encourage your enamel to build itself up. We typically recommend scheduling a dental hygiene appointment every six months to a year.
Oral Hygiene Between Appointments
Your best practice to ensure the best possible oral health in between your oral hygiene appointments is to brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. There are many oral hygiene products on the market, with some that perform better than others. Our dental hygienists can recommend the best brushes and toothpaste for your unique mouth.
