In order to maintain good oral health we recommend that you brush and floss at least twice a day. This reduces the amount of plaque on the teeth which significantly reduces the risk of decay, and gum disease. Brushing and flossing regularly also provides optimal gum health.
At Lord Dufferin Dental Centre we like to see our patients every 6 months for their dental cleaning, and exams. We also provide deep scaling every 3- 4 months also known as root planning.
Having frequent cleanings is your best way to help prevent gum disease. It is a known fact that gum disease can affect your heart health. People with gum disease are at greater risk for a heart attack then people with healthy gums. Frequent cleanings also help prevent decay and keep your smile at its brightest!
