Dental & Oral Hygiene

Keeping Your Smile Bright & Clean


Dental hygiene is essential to remaining healthy, and yet many neglect even brushing their teeth daily. Brushing and flossing is still one of the most effective means of maintaining a beautiful smile, yet it’s quite easy to miss areas in your mouth leading to the build up of plaque and tartar. Regular appointments with a dentist can keep your mouth healthy, maintain the highest standards of oral hygiene, and prevent cavities from forming.


Good dental hygiene and regular visits (every 6 months) to your hygienist and dentist are imperative to good oral care.

The care of your teeth at home through regular brushing and flossing is the most efficient method of dental care available. Despite this home care, calculus / plaque will build up on everyone’s teeth over time, in hard to reach places and areas that you may miss when brushing and flossing. If this tartar gets below the gum line, bacteria will enter this area which can lead to a host of other dental issues. The friendly, gentle and professional hygienists at Preston Dental Centre will examine and treat these areas, helping to keep your mouth as healthy as possible.

Amongst the many tasks the hygienists perform at Preston Dental Centre, they will be responsible for a thorough and professional cleaning, taking X-Rays, examining your bite, and applying fluoride treatments and sealants.

PDC is a strong proponent of proactive dental hygiene. To us, this is a holistic approach, one that takes place not only at the clinic but more importantly in your home.

Oral hygiene care is best achieved through prevention. Rather than reacting to dental matters that may arise, we recommend a preventive course of action that gets out ahead of the issues, promoting proactive oral care. By managing factors that lead to dental disease, you’re more likely to prevent its occurrence.

One of our dental hygienists would be happy to speak with you about putting together the best plan for your ongoing oral care. Dental hygiene is about more than just cleaning your teeth, though of course we do that as well.
