What does oral hygiene mean to you? Confidence that your breath is fresh? Knowing your teeth look white? No toothaches? These are great reasons for good oral hygiene. Dr. Nathan Jergensen and his hygienists at Diamond Valley Dentist in Hemet, CA suggest teamwork for optimal dental health, combining your daily good oral habits with regular professional attention and preventive techniques.
Dental hygiene and health are intimately related. The condition of the mouth is directly related to the risk of systemic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, respiratory problems, and more. Conversely, chronic medical conditions may trigger dental problems. A checkup at Diamond Valley Dentist is an excellent place to start an improved plan of oral hygiene that promotes overall wellness.
Teeth cleaning first focuses on removing plaque from teeth, using special instruments to reach spots you might be missing. It is also essential to remove tartar from teeth, since buildup at the gumline can be the start of gum disease. Teeth are polished, and Dr. Jergensen examines each one, as well as soft tissues, to intercept dental problems before they become extensive or expensive.
Between-visit oral hygiene is also vital. We recommend:
