Dental Hygiene

Our mouth houses billions of bacteria every day. Bacteria tend to build up as plaque, cavities, and gingivitis, any of which can lead to periodontal disease. Practicing good oral hygiene is crucial for a healthy smile. Patients must ensure that they brush after their meals, use antibacterial mouthwashes, and floss at least once a day to ward off disease-causing bacteria from reproducing in the mouth.

At Arden Dental Center, we understand the importance of maintaining optimum dental health through proper oral hygiene practices. With our dedicated team of highly skilled dentists and hygienists, we provide comprehensive guidance and care to help patients achieve exceptional dental hygiene results. By emphasizing preventive measures such as regular cleanings and educating individuals on proper brushing techniques tailored to their specific needs, we aim to empower our patients with the knowledge necessary for lifelong dental wellness.

Major Oral Hygiene Practices

Oral hygiene is a vital aspect of maintaining overall health and understanding the major oral hygiene practices is crucial for achieving optimal dental care. Here are the major oral hygiene practices:

Brushing and Flossing

Brushing removes plaque, food particles, and bacteria from the mouth while flossing targets the spaces between teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach effectively. 


Swishing around with mouthwash for about 30 seconds after brushing can provide extra protection against harmful germs lingering in your mouth.

Tongue Cleaning

Gently scraping your tongue with either a dedicated tongue scraper or even the backside of your regular toothbrush will help eliminate bacteria in the tongue efficiently.

Regular Dental Checkups

Visiting your dentist regularly is vital for maintaining excellent oral health. Dentists can identify any potential issues early on through comprehensive exams.
