What is Good Oral Hygiene?
Believe it or not, oral hygiene originally came into existence more than 5,000 years ago when ancient Egyptians built the first crude toothbrushes from twigs and leaves to clean their teeth. Thankfully, we’ve come a long way since then and today we have a wide range of products available to help us keep our dental health in top condition.
Between electric toothbrushes, mouthwash, floss, a variety of toothpaste, and experienced dentists (like us!), it’s never been easier to make sure your teeth and gums are looking their best and, more importantly, healthy. Want to see how you measure up? Below, we’ve outlined some of the key indicators that tell us whether or not a patient has good oral hygiene practices in place.
