Dental Hygiene is crucial to overall health of patients. When a patient practices good oral hygiene it results in a mouth that looks and smells healthy. Dental hygiene means that your teeth are clean of any debris and your gums are pink. Gums should not bleed as a result of brushing or flossing.Good dental hygiene also means that your breath will have no foul odor or bad breath that can be a constant problem. With routine cleaning and maintenance, good oral hygiene can be achieved and sustained. At the Oxnard dental office, we customize cleanings on the basis of your periodontal, (gums and bone), health. At the Oxnard dental office of Drs. Kane and Kerper, we utilize medicated gels along with prescription mouth rinses in problem areas if necessary. Ultrasonic scalers are sometimes used to make the procedure more comfortable and effective as well.
