What is good dental hygiene?
Here at Lifetime Family Dentistry we believe that good dental hygiene must be practiced everyday in order to achieve a healthy smile! Brushing after meals, using antimicrobial mouthwash, and flossing at least once per day, especially before sleeping, helps to keep disease causing bacteria from reproducing in your mouth, and causing tooth decay.
It is essential to visit a dental hygienist every six months for a specialized cleaning that only a trained and certified dental hygienist can provide. Our world-class dental hygienists help our patients out with necessary information about hygiene, the best treatments money can buy, and a better understanding of what it takes to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile!

Dental hygiene for children
Early childhood dental visits are important. The sooner the children starts receiving regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay throughout their lives. Early checkups help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which lead to pain and other medical issues. We are encouraging not only new hygiene patients but all of our current patients to keep their twice a year appointments.
