Dental Hygiene Services (Oral Hygiene)
Dental hygiene or oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean, providing full oral health care to avoid dental problems (like teeth cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath). Good oral hygiene is also required for healing and regeneration of oral tissues when there are oral pathologic conditions such as gingivitis, periodontitis, dental trauma, oral cysts, etc.
Although brushing and flossing your teeth is a contributing factor to clean teeth and a healthy mouth, dental hygiene services are proven to prevent dental illnesses and help heal and regenerate oral tissues. Regularly visiting the dental hygienist prevents future dental issues and sustains good oral health.
