Oral Hygiene
oral hygiene advice from Kingsport Dental Clinic_Livingston
The team at Kingsport Dental Clinic recommends that patients have there teeth professionally cleaned at least every six months.

Professional cleaning includes a thorough scaling to remove tartar build up and a deep cleaning of the gums where required.

It is important for patients to follow a good oral hygiene regime. To prevent tartar build up which can then lead to gum disease. This is done by carefully and frequently brushing with a toothbrush and using dental floss to prevent the accumulation of plaque on teeth.
