Dental Hygiene

Dental Hygiene refers to caring for your teeth and gums so that they look healthy and clean. To maintain good dental hygiene, you should brush and floss twice daily and visit your dentist at least once every six months. You should also keep an eye on your gum health; make sure they are pink and not bleeding. And you should not have bad breath.


Dental hygiene should be an eminent part of everyone’s preventive dental care. It will help them reduce the chances of dental issues and any complex and expensive dental procedures. Dental hygiene practices at DB Dental Care in Miami would help you keep your teeth healthy and reduce the risk of any upcoming dental disease that might become painful and cause damage to your oral and overall health in the future.

What will happen if you do not maintain proper dental hygiene?

If you fail to maintain proper dental hygiene, you are compromising your oral health and putting yourself at a greater risk of cavities. If not taken care of on time, cavities can worsen, and you might have to get a root canal treatment or dental extraction. The preventive treatments are designed to save your teeth and help you get rid of pain or any other symptoms that are caused due to periodontal diseases or other dental issues (decay), like gum inflammation, bleeding gums, bad breath, etc.
