Oral Hygiene is a very important component to proper long-term oral health. At Harrisville Dental Centre, it remains imperative to introduce healthy hygiene techniques at an early age to promote good habits throughout your life. Our staff of assistants and hygienists will take the time to educate our patients on proper oral hygiene solutions so that they have perfect oral health.
Our hygiene appointments usually take about 1 hour. This includes a professional cleaning, polishing and rinsing to remove any plaque or tartar build up on the tooth surface. It also includes X-ray diagnosis, oral cancer screening, fluoride treatment, etc.
Brushing and flossing on a regular basis will help maintain good oral health. It will also help prevent tooth decay or advanced gingival and periodontal diseases. Most patients require six month intervals for their maintenance schedules however we will customize every treatment plan as some cases may require different approaches.
