How can preventive oral care help my smile?
Preventative oral care is a group effort. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day are key personal habits for maintaining the health of your teeth, gums, and even jaw bones. Routine exams and cleanings at the dentist office are another important element to preventing tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, bone loss and, ultimately, tooth loss.
Having your teeth cleaned by Shine’s dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar (or calculus) that has built up on and in between your teeth — and even below your gum line. This gets rid of harmful oral bacteria that can damage your oral health.
