Brushing plays a critical role in removing the plaque that can cause tooth decay and gum disease. How often you brush, how long you brush for, the kind of technique and toothbrush you use all have an impact on the effectiveness of your brushing. Dental reflections Hygiene department are always happy to assist you in what you need to maintain a healthy mouth.
If you’re solely relying on brushing, you’re not cleaning a large portion of your teeth effectively. Nearly half of the surface area of your teeth lies between them. Flossing can help remove the plaque from in between your teeth, which assists in the prevention of gum disease, tooth decay and ‘bad breath’ Flossing your teeth daily for just a couple of minutes will help ensure a healthy mouth. Our lovely ladies in our hygiene department would be more than happy to teach you the right flossing technique.
