In a large study, people who had their teeth professionally scaled were 24% less likely to have a heart attack, compared with those who skipped the hygienist. Scaling cleans between the gums and the teeth. Dr. A Ta at Norton Dental Downtown Toronto recommends a dental cleaning about every 6 months to maintain oral health.
Dental hygiene, oral hygiene, is the preventative care taken to avoid problems with dental health. The main component of dental hygiene is your personal at home hygiene regimen.
When combined with professional dental care, such as regular examinations and cleanings to treat and prevent decay and disease, you can be sure to maintain a healthy mouth and smile.
Away from the dental chair, you are responsible for the daily maintenance of your oral health. Dr. A Ta (Toronto Downtown Dentist) and dental hygienist work with you to schedule dental cleanings and check-ups at least twice a year to help make sure you stay on the right path. Brushing your teeth at least twice and day and flossing in between your teeth at least once a day (if not more) will guarantee that dental plaque is not allowed to build up.
