General oral care services at Jarvis Family Dental

What is 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.

What are the risks of poor oral care habits?

Poor oral care habits and irregular brushing and flossing can lead to a buildup of plaque and tartar. As plaque continues to accumulate, patients will often experience pain, discomfort, and even gum disease which if neglected could lead to severe problems such as tooth loss.

Proper oral care habits

Ways that you can maintain or establish a good general oral care routine include:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Once during the day and again right before bed.
  • Using proper brushing techniques. (If you require guidance our dental assistants and dental hygienists are more than happy to help).
  • Flossing once a day. Preferably right before bed.
  • Using mouthwash. Use an antiseptic or antibacterial mouthwash to kill germs and bad breath.
  • Schedule regular dental cleanings and checkups at your dentist.
