About General Oral Hygiene

Bite Dentistry Edinburgh offers award-winning care to ensure your dental hygiene because as we know, our teeth require expert care in order to remain healthy.

With professional advice from an experienced team and a variety of oral hygiene treatments, your smile is guaranteed to shine like never before.

The Link Between Oral Hygiene and Your Health

Oral hygiene has been proven to improve your health in a number of key areas. Many serious health issues can begin with gum disease, so maintaining a good standard of oral hygiene is instrumentally important in our daily lives.

From preventing diabetes and arthritis to detecting health problems via your saliva, oral wellbeing has informed general healthcare for a long time. Maintaining a high standard of general oral hygiene is the first line of defence when it comes to protecting your overall health.

Good Oral Care Begins with a Routine Check-Up

Your wellbeing is our highest priority, which is why we advise regular check-ups to protect and maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Bite Dentistry offers specialist dental cleaning to get your smile back to its best. Good oral hygiene is often just a polish away!

Why is Professional Cleaning so Important?

A regular polish from an oral hygienist will boost your general oral hygiene, cleaning the areas that are easily missed at home. Long periods without a professional clean increase your risk of gum disease and other illnesses.

At your appointment, your Bite Dentistry hygienist will also advise you on how to continue caring for your smile at home. We can even offer product recommendations that will help you to achieve deeper cleaning between visits, ensuring your oral health remains robust and effective.

Maintain Your General Oral Hygiene at Home

As important as regular check-ups are, it’s the in-between cleaning that makes up the bulk of your oral hygiene. Bite Dentistry’s hygienists will give you advice on making the most of your at-home cleaning regimen – advice that you won’t find anywhere else.

An oral hygienist’s input on your general oral hygiene is vital. Thankfully, caring for your teeth has never been simpler through Bite Dentistry.

Bite Dentistry’s Top Tips for At-Home Teeth Care

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes
  • Floss between each of your teeth in the evening
  • Avoid sugary food and drinks
  • Maintain other healthy habits such as lowering your alcohol intake and avoiding smoking
  • Don’t delay visiting your dentist if you experience mouth pain or discomfort
  • Schedule regular check-ups with your dentist every 6 months or so
