ORAL CARE AND PREVENTION
Oral care and prevention in Haldimand County
Why is oral care so important?
Your oral health is more than just brushing and flossing on a daily basis. The foods that you eat and the care that you give your mouth and teeth will go a long way in ensuring proper oral hygiene.
Good oral hygiene is everything you do to keep your mouth, teeth and especially your gums healthy. Doing this though requires more than brushing once a day. Make sure your daily oral care includes:
- Brushing thoroughly at least twice a day
- Flossing at least once a day
- Use a mouthwash
Good oral health will lead to good overall health – your teeth are very important to your overall health!

Your teeth require regular maintenance in order to ensure good overall oral hygiene. Dental cleaning plays a big role in preventing problems like cavities, gingivitis and gum disease by removing plaque and tartar that build up over time from the teeth, ensuring they remain healthy and free from these risks.
Digital x-rays are a form of dental technology that are used to take detailed, in-depth photos of your teeth, mouth and jaw, which allows dentists to thoroughly examine for potential problems.
Dry Mouth and Bad Breath
Bad breath is often a result of poor oral hygiene, such as failing to regularly brush your teeth, floss, or use mouthwash. It can also be caused by certain foods and other bad lifestyle habits.
Dry mouth is also a potential cause of bad breath. Our mouths need saliva for moisture, to kill plaque-based acids, and to flush dead cells and bacteria living in our mouths.
Early Cavity Detection
Early cavity detection is a dental service that allows dentists, dental assistants and hygienists to detect any structural changes and decay in your teeth that would be difficult to find otherwise.
General Oral Care
General oral care involves practicing good oral hygiene habits such as brushing with fluoride toothpaste and performing daily flossing. This helps kill bad germs and bacteria, and assists in the prevention tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.
Gum disease is a common infection of the gums that can vary in levels of seriousness and severity. The two types that are most often found in patients are gingivitis and periodontitis.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screening consists of a thorough, detailed examination of your mouth, teeth and gums to check for signs of cancer or other serious oral hygiene issues.
