Everyone needs to take care of their teeth and there is only so much you can do at home with brushing and flossing. Regular checkups and professional dental hygiene care in Prince George Dr. Richard Wilczek offers patients the necessary attention and education they need to maintain optimum oral health. Good dental hygiene is a key factor in maintaining healthy gums and teeth and we provide a range of services to help including:
Home Dental Hygiene Best Practices
Brushing is recommended at least twice a day and is encouraged after each meal, because bacteria can become more active soon after eating. Flossing is important to reach the areas where your toothbrush cannot. It can reduce the buildup of plaque between your teeth and reduce the risk of gum disease.
Brushing and flossing are important to keeping your mouth healthy and dental hygiene at optimum levels, but these measures do not remove all stains or plaque from your teeth. We recommend coming in for a professional cleaning every 6 months to ensure your teeth and gums are at their best.
Dental Hygiene for Children
Letting your child become acquainted with your dental office is an important way to establish healthy dental care habits. It also allows dentists to perform visual inspections and provide instructions for optimal hygiene practices. Checkups early on can detect any possible problems and allows for the review of your child’s oral development. We recommend bringing your child to the dentist when they are at 1 year of age.
