It defines the practice of keeping the mouth, teeth, and gums clean and healthy to prevent oral diseases. Oral hygiene comprises two complementary practices: home oral hygiene and professional oral hygiene. Although dental hygiene and oral health are taken for granted, most of the population still needs the necessary instructions and training to do so effectively. Learning efficient oral hygiene techniques at home, adapted to the individual patient’s particular clinical and anatomical situation, is essential to maintain or regain oral health and improve the general one.
Good oral hygiene helps prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease (periodontitis) and helps preserve teeth for life.
Another reason to brush your teeth well, floss, and other tools recommended by your dental hygienist is that a healthy mouth helps prevent and reduce the effects of systemic diseases.
Our staff sets the simplest to most complex therapies for diagnosing and treating oral cavity diseases by promptly adopting the most effective strategy.
However, it should be remembered that even the most refined dental therapies require an individualized professional maintenance program to avoid relapses and new pathologies.
Our dental hygienists have over thirty years of experience and help patients regain and maintain oral health by teaching each patient the most suitable home oral hygiene techniques.
Every patient is unique. After a first visit evaluating oral health conditions, a personalized professional dental hygiene program is formulated based on the specific clinical picture.
