Good oral hygiene is an essential part of maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. However, brushing your teeth and flossing do not remove discolouring and darkening or accumulations of tartar from your teeth.
Regular visits to the dental hygienist should be a part of your dental care routine; they prevent problems which you yourself may not be able to detect such as tartar, gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), cavities or changes on the mucous membrane.
Did you know that inflammation of the gums is one of the most common reasons for teeth come off? Good mouth hygiene helps to keep your gums healthy and thus increase the lifespan of your teeth.
