A healthy mouth and a healthy body depend on good dental hygiene.

What is dental hygiene?

Dental hygiene might sound complicated, but its definition is simple: it’s the practice of keeping your mouth and teeth clean to prevent dental problems. Because the best way to ensure that your smile stays healthy is with routine cleanings and 6 month checkups.

If you’re looking for dental hygiene services in Calabasas or Agoura Hills, Mountain View Dentistry is a great option. We personalize cleanings based on the health of your gums, bone structure and teeth. This way we can make the most out of every visit, and keep your teeth healthy and strong.

Depending on your personal needs, we also have a variety of fluoride treatments, mouth rinses and professionally applied gels to maintain the strength of your teeth.

Dental hygiene checklist

  • It’s important to visit Dr. Schechter at least every six months to get your teeth cleaned. That way he can monitor your oral health and help prevent any problems that may arise.
  • In between visits, it’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day.
  • You should also replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months!
  • Remember to floss daily!
