Preventive Dental Care in Kitchener, ON
No matter how meticulous we are with our brushing and flossing, it is impossible to remove all of the residue that builds up on our teeth. This residue becomes hard over time, developing into tartar or calculus, which cannot be removed with a toothbrush or floss. Cleanings at our Kitchener dental offices are performed by trained professionals and are able to effectively remove all the soft and hard deposits, which leaves a healthier environment for the gums.
Of course, maintaining a routine of brushing and flossing every day is essential to a home hygiene plan. However, your diet plays a large role in the health of your teeth as well. Dr. Manzoor recommends eating a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and reducing the amount of processed foods and sugar you eat. Additionally, reduce your consumption of carbonated beverages and citric fruit juices, as they create an acidic environment in the mouth.
MI Dental provides a variety of preventive dental services at our Kitchener dental office. Among these include professional cleanings, polishing and stain removal, and oral hygiene instructions and demonstrations. With these services, education, and home care, you should be able to keep your teeth and gums healthy for many years to come.
