Many patients believe that brushing their teeth right before visiting the dentist can cover up a history of poor oral hygiene. However, we can instantly tell just how well cared for your teeth really are. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a wide variety of health issues including tooth decay and bad breath which cannot be easily resolved just by brushing your teeth.
While at the dentist, we can provide you with a deep cleaning, but once you leave, your oral hygiene is something that you must upkeep and maintain. A few minutes of hard brushing in the morning and evening goes a long way and can save you time and money in the long run!
