Dental Hygiene Services
When it comes to your dental health, clean is synonymous to healthy. Because many dental problems result from plaque buildup, hygiene is a critical, if not the most critical, aspect of dental care. Regular brushing and flossing at home are highly recommended, as well as consulting your dentist for regular cleaning.
At Legacy Dental Health, we provide dental hygiene services to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. With your health as our priority, we aim to prevent dental problems, such as tooth decay, dental cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.
What We Can Offer
We focus on giving your teeth a thorough cleaning, which involves the removal of stubborn plaque that brushing and flossing cannot remove alone. We achieve this through a procedure called scaling and polishing. Using the latest equipment and techniques, we remove soft deposits (plaque) and hard deposits (calculus) from your teeth. With the removal of these deposits, we can prevent tooth decay, bleeding gums, and periodontal disease.
In addition to cleaning services, our preventive care involves application of dental sealants, administration of fluoride and preventive instructions, which include day-to-day care of your teeth and gums. The dentist will also provide advice on what kinds of food and habits to avoid to minimize the risk of various dental problems.
Possible Dangers of Poor Oral Hygiene
Tooth decay is the most common global disease. Over 70% of cavities occur inside the tooth’s grooves and fissures where brushing cannot reach, leaving food particles trapped after every meal or snack. Inside these fissures, fluoride has no access to neutralize acid, hastening the development of decay.
There are many reasons to prevent this development, one of which goes beyond the mouth. Many studies indicate that oral disease and inflammation resulting from poor oral hygiene can put you at risk of serious systemic diseases, such as heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis, diabetes complications, pneumonia, among other conditions.
