Why Your Dental Hygiene Is Important

Serving Patients from Boston, Braintree, Weymouth, Quincy & Nearby Areas of Massachusetts


The South Shore cosmetic dentists at Pinnacle Dental Aesthetics have years of experience solving dental problems, but we’ve seen too many smiles ruined by poor dental hygiene.

Dentistry is, in many ways, a complicated field, but it’s also a fairly simple one. The best thing you can do to protect your teeth and your smile is to practice basic dental hygiene.

When you don’t practice good dental hygiene, you leave food and plaque between your teeth and gums. This quickens the development of harmful bacteria.

This bacteria produces acidic toxins which eat away at your tooth enamel causing decay and attacks your gums causing inflammation periodontal disease which compromises the foundation of your teeth. Unhealthy gums will inevitably become unhealthy teeth.

The end result of poor dental hygiene is bad breath, as well as unattractive, stained and loose teeth which may require many visits to a cosmetic dentist to correct.

You can avoid all of this just by:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice a day
  • Flossing regularly
  • Seeing a dentist for a cleaning and exam at least once every six months

There’s no dentistry more effective than the preventative steps you can take yourself.
