Prioritize Your Oral Health With Dental Hygiene Care

At Philadelphia Dental Smiles in Philadelphia, we understand and prioritize the importance of good oral health. Our team of dental professionals is here to help keep your smile fresh and clean with our thorough dental hygiene services.  

What does dental hygiene care involve?

Our dental hygiene care begins with a thorough examination of your gums and the structure of your mouth so we can check for any signs of disease, such as gingivitis or oral cancer. We then remove stains, plaque, and tartar from the surface of your teeth and apply preventatives for decay, such as sealants. We conclude with a consultation about homecare practices and offer advice on brushing and flossing methods.

Why is dental hygiene care important?

Dental hygiene care is essential not only for the health of your mouth but for your overall well-being.

When you lack proper dental hygiene, your teeth can become damaged from decay. This can lead to cavities, infected root canals, and gum disease. If left untreated, this can increase your risk of some systematic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and more.

What are the benefits of dental hygiene care?

Early detection of gum disease and other serious oral conditions is key to successful treatment. Our team can check for early signs of disease during your dental hygiene visit. Taking care of your teeth keeps the enamel strong, reinforcing the structural integrity of your teeth and reducing the likelihood of tooth decay and cavities. Good dental hygiene can keep your breath smelling fresh.

Who should consider dental hygiene care?

It is recommended that everyone, regardless of age or gender, receive comprehensive dental hygiene care every six months to ensure their teeth are healthy, clean, and free of disease.
