What is good dental hygiene?
Here at Mountain Springs Dental we believe that good dental hygiene must be practiced in order to achieve a healthy smile and good oral hygiene must be practiced every day! Brushing after meals, using antimicrobial mouthwash, and flossing at least once per day, especially before sleeping, helps to keep these disease causing bacteria from reproducing in your mouth, and causing tooth decay.
It is very necessary to visit a dental hygienist every six months for a specialized cleaning that only a trained and certified dental Hygienist can provide. Our world-class dental hygienists help our patients out with necessary information about hygiene, best treatments that money can buy, and a better understanding of what it takes to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile!
What happens during a hygiene visit?

Dental hygiene for children
Early childhood dental visits are important. The sooner the children begin getting regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay throughout their lives. Early checkups help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which will lead to pain and other medical issues. We are encouraging not only new hygiene patients but all of our current patients to keep their twice a year appointments.
