Dental Hea​lth

Good oral hygiene results in a mouth that looks and smells healthy. This means:

1. Your teeth are clean and free of debris,

2. Gums are firmly held against teeth and do not hurt or bleed when you brush or floss,

3. Bad breath is not a constant problem,

4. If your gums do hurt or bleed while brushing or flossing, or you are experiencing persistent bad breath, see your dentist. Any of these conditions may indicate a problem.

Your dental professional can help you learn good oral hygiene techniques and can help point out areas of your mouth that may require extra attention during brushing and flossing.
