The whitening method of Sheer White is gentle and safe, which means less tooth sensitivity afterward. Whitening, when paired with good daily dental hygiene, can keep your teeth looking their best for 6 to 12 months.

The importance of Proper Dental Hygiene

Keeping to a strict schedule of dental hygiene is the most important thing you can do for the health of your teeth and gums, and a good way to keep your teeth looking their best. Aside from the esthetic appeal of regular dental maintenance, proper hygiene will also ward off consequences such as gum disease, tooth decay, and general dental erosion. By making sure you clear away all daily debris build-up, you not only ensure a great looking smile, you also strengthen the functionality of one of our bodies' most essential systems.

If dental health and the prevention of oral diseases isn't enough motivation to keep your mouth clean, consider this: Studies show that poor dental hygiene can also contribute to more serious conditions, such as heart disease, pancreatic cancer, and even Alzheimer's disease. Your reluctance to abide by a strict oral hygiene routine could lead to future life-threatening conditions. Why take the risk?

Guide to Maintaining Healthy Teeth

Your daily oral hygiene routine should include the following:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day - Ideally, you should brush your teeth an hour after each meal, with a toothbrush whose head is small enough to reach all areas of each individual tooth, and use toothpaste that contains fluoride.
  • Floss - Brushing alone isn't enough to completely clean your teeth. Using floss to complement your brushing will ensure you properly clean the sides of your teeth, as well as the spaces in between.
  • Watch your diet - "Comfort foods" usually contain the most sugars and acids. While these foods give us great pleasure, they also do a harmful number on the integrity of our teeth. Limit the amount of sugary and acidic foods and beverages you consume, and be sure to clean away residue left behind, when you do consume these foods, about an hour after ingestion.
  • Visit your dentist - No one knows your mouth, and how to keep it in optimal working condition, quite like your dentist. Be sure to make regular appointments for check-ups, as well as to treat issues before they get out of hand.

The above steps constitute a guideline to basic oral hygiene, and are, by no means, exhaustive. For more information on how to take your dental hygiene to a higher level, contact the dentists and hygienists at Azarko Dental Group in Edmonton today.

Consequences of Poor Dental Hygiene

  • Tooth Decay - Popularly known as "cavities", tooth decay is caused by a buildup of bacteria contained in plaque. These germs build up in concentrated areas, react with sugars and acids, and slowly dissolve the tooth's protective enamel causing painful holes on the tooth's surface.
  • Dental Erosion - While tooth decay is defined by the concentrated decay of dental enamel causing holes, dental erosion takes it a step further. It erodes enamel on the entirety of the tooth, exposing the softer dentine underneath. Once the thin layer of enamel is gone, anything hot, cold, or sweet will be excruciatingly painful.
  • Gum Disease - Gum disease is defined as the infection or inflammation of tissues around the teeth, caused by the bacteria in plaque build-up. Left untreated, gum disease will likely cause gingivitis, periodontitis and, eventually, tooth loss. Thankfully, if caught early enough, it is often treatable.

Dental hygiene should always be taken seriously. Care for your teeth today, and avoid serious health complications in the future. Contact Azarko Dental to schedule an appointment for all general dentistry services, and let our dentists teach you how to maintain an effective oral hygiene routine.
