What is oral hygiene?
Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth clean and is considered to be the best means of prevention of cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, periodontitis, and other dental disorders. It also helps to prevent bad breath (halitosis).
Oral hygiene is necessary for all persons to maintain the health of their teeth and mouth. Healthy teeth have fewer cavities. They are clean and have minimal or no plaque deposits. Healthy gums are pink and firm.
Oral hygiene consists of both personal and professional care. Dental X-rays (radiographs) are often performed as part of routine professional examinations. At Kisumu Dental Center, we provide professional cleaning that includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. Even if you do a great job of cleaning your teeth yourself and are religious about using dental floss, you still need professional cleanings.
Our Dental Surgeon Dr Odoyo E. O recommends having the teeth professionally cleaned every six months.
