If you are like most adults, you might already feel familiar with the basics of dental care. You brush your teeth twice a day, floss regularly, and meet with your dentist, so what else is there to do? Although talking with your dentist about oral hygiene might seem like a waste of time, most people could benefit from a refresher course. That’s why at CITIDental High Street, we take the time to provide tips and encouragement to each patient on the best practices for oral hygiene.

The fact of the matter is that dental hygiene standards change a little over time, and what might have been considered fine a few years ago might not be recommended anymore. Here are a few reasons we like to teach our patients more about oral hygiene, and how it might help you:


Here at CITIDental High Street, we pride ourselves on being able to repair dental issues, but we’d prefer you didn’t develop them in the first place. Even small cavities can cause a great deal of pain, embarrassment, and difficulty following your normal routine. Small dental issues can also snowball into larger problems, such as serious infections, which is why we prefer to help people to avoid decay altogether.Preventive dental care can save you a great deal of time, money, and pain in the long run. Fortunately, by learning more about oral hygiene, you might be able to improve your checkups and avoid costly work down the road.


We want to help you to be successful, which is why we love to teach our patients more about oral hygiene. Here are a few things we can teach you during your next visit:

Walk You Through the Basics: Don’t be shy about asking about brushing and flossing. If you want a refresher course on the basics, we would be more than happy to show you how to brush, floss, and rinse more effectively.

Identify Potentially Harmful Behaviors: We can also help you to identify which behaviors are harming your teeth based on what we see during your dental exam. For example, if you brush too hard, we can show you areas where you have root exposure, so that you can ease off of that toothbrush.

Talk About Current Research: Dental research is important to us at CITIDental High Street, which is why we like to educate our patients. If there is a new study or a great tool that can improve your experience, we want to tell you about it. During your refresher course, we can talk with you about new ways to tackle your dentistry complaints.

Answer Questions: Last but not least, we are more than happy to answer any dental questions you might have. Before your next checkup, take a few minutes to mull over your dentistry concerns. Our staff will do their best to accurately and thoroughly address your questions.
