Keep Teeth Healthy With Preventative Dentistry in Brantford

Oral health begins with clean teeth; and, since your smile depends on how well you take care of your teeth, proper oral hygiene is essential. At Portway Dentistry in Brantford, we offer preventative dentistry services to help your teeth become healthier and teach you how to look after them. Regular brushing and flossing helps maintain the day-to-day cleanliness of your teeth, though you still need professional care every 3 to 6 months.

With regular preventative care, you can avoid many of the costly conditions that result from not seeing a dental professional on a regular basis. Our team can help prevent small problems from becoming something more serious.

Preventative Habits

We will help educate and inform you on how to keep your teeth healthy between visits. If you regularly brush and floss, avoid tobacco products, and maintain a healthy diet, your teeth will be healthier and cleaner year-round. Here are two simple tips you might like to introduce into your oral cleaning routine:

  • Tongue brushing: Brush your tongue with a tongue cleaner or a soft-bristled toothbrush. For the most effective clean, stroke in a front-to-back direction.
  • Mouth washing: Use a mouthwash that contains plaque-reducing ingredients.
