At Bramwest Family Dental, we encourage patients to visit often in order to keep teeth as healthy and clean as possible. A dental cleaning allows dentists to find oral health issues and treat them before they worsen. Brampton patients can schedule an appointment to get cleanings that brighten smiles, freshen breath, and prevent dental problems.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common issue that many patients face. While it is common, it is also preventable by visiting your dentist regularly and maintaining good oral health. Poor oral hygiene is the leading cause of gum disease, so patients should brush and floss each day to keep teeth healthy and prevent gum disease.
Patients may not be aware of it, but your oral hygiene routine may be causing the enamel to become damaged. The enamel may seem rock solid, but teeth are sensitive and can be harmed by brushing too hard or flossing too vigorously. Make sure that the toothbrush you use has soft bristles and use gentle circular motions. An electric toothbrush is highly recommended, as well as a visit to your dentist biannually.
While bad breath can be caused by foods or beverages consumed, sometimes the smell lingers even after brushing or chewing minty gum. If your breath smells bad, it could be time for a dental appointment. Routine cleanings can get rid of tartar and bacteria in the mouth that causes a foul odor, freshening your breath.
When you visit your dentist, they will perform a thorough exam and look for problems that could be developing within the enamel or in other parts of the mouth. Many oral issues can be prevented or treated with less invasive methods if they are caught early enough. With modern dentistry, patients can even reverse cavities if they’re caught before they get too severe.
A Bramwest Family Dental professional can provide you with the smile you desire, so be sure to stop by the office and schedule an appointment with our Brampton dentist.
