Bonnie Doon Dental Clinic in Edmonton provides general dentistry services for people of all age groups. Whether you need a routine check-up or an emergency root canal treatment, our staff will help put you at ease. However, when it comes to obtaining optimal oral health, we believe that healthy oral habits go a longer way than quick fixes. Although wholesome dental habits such as brushing your teeth and flossing are essential, they can’t replace regular dental check-ups. In a nutshell, oral habits and treatments go hand in hand.
There is a direct connection between dental hygiene and gum diseases. Through good oral habits at home, you can maintain healthy gums and keep periodontal diseases at bay.
Brushing, Flossing, and Mouthwash
You get one set of permanent teeth for life that is second to none in both – comfort and sturdiness. Hence it makes sense to do whatever you can to maintain and preserve them, and the simplest way to do so is through flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. It is human nature to focus more on the first task compared to the latter two. So you may spend an ample amount of time flossing and hence killing and removing bacteria from your mouth. After that, once you brush, you’ll further remove bacteria from hard-to-reach places. Rinsing your mouth with a fluoride mouthwash will keep the fluoride on your teeth that will strengthen them and prevent cavities. A clean mouth facilitates healthy gums. Get in touch with us today.
