The importance of good oral hygiene

The most effective way to protect your teeth, remove plaque and maintain healthy gums is also the easiest- by regularly visiting our hygienist.

Plaque is one of the biggest threats to your oral and overall health. If it’s not removed it will build up and your teeth may decay and your gums become inflamed (gingivitis). This buildup will also stain your enamel, cause bad breath and bleeding of the gums.

Even those who practice good oral hygiene are at risk. In fact, nearly 90% of adults will experience some level of gum disease at least once in their lifetime.

Even More Reasons to See Our Hygienist

Not only will you love the cleaner, smoother feel of your teeth and gums, regular visits can also:

  • Help prevent gum disease- Gum disease can be treated, stopped and even reversed by regular professional cleaning
  • Improve your overall health- Plaque and poor oral health have been linked to other diseases such as diabetes, respiratory problems and heart disease
  • Give you a whiter and brighter smile
  • Prevent bad breath- Halitosis can be caused by bacteria under the gumline, where only a dental professional can clean
  • Prevent oral cancer- during your visit we screen for oral cancer and advise you on risk factors. If detected early, oral cancer is highly curable.
  • Stop your gums from bleeding
  • Help you keep the teeth you have- Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss. Removing plaque regularly will help prevent it.

Children's Hygiene

A Big Adventure for Your Little Ones

At North Hill Dental we believe dental health is an important habit that should start at an early age to encourage a lifelong habit.

We understand, however, that visiting the dentist can be scary for everyone- but especially children.

The caring team at North Hill Dental are experts at explaining to your child exactly what they can expect- in terms your child will understand. They will also teach them basic dental care in an interesting and engaging way that will encourage them to develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
