Oral Hygiene

Practicing good oral hygiene is a critical aspect to prevent bad breath, gum disease, and other qualities of an unhealthy mouth. Asante Dental can provide services to improve your oral hygiene, but it is good to practice brushing your teeth and flossing every day.

Teeth Cleaning

Asante Dental offers a variety of teeth cleaning services at a reasonable rate to prevent disease and improve oral health. At your request, our dentists can make recommendations on teeth whitening treatment that is right for you.

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay happens gradually as you get older and can cause tooth enamel on the hard, outer layer of your teeth. Tooth decay is a result of plaque build-up and disease within the teeth and our dental health specialists can treat this build-up of plaque to prevent tooth decay.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Daily brushing and flossing will keep dental calculus, also called tartar, to a minimum, but a professional cleaning will remove calculus in places your toothbrush and floss have missed. At Asante Dental in New Westminster, we offer professional dental cleanings to improve your dental health and assist in your oral hygiene. 

Caring for sensitive teeth

Sometimes after dental treatment, teeth are sensitive to hot and cold. The sensitivity should not last long as the area is in recovery. If your teeth are especially sensitive, consult with your dental professional at Asante Dental. They may recommend a medicated toothpaste or mouth rinse made especially for sensitive teeth.

Eating Healthy For Your Teeth

Damaging food

Sticky and starchy foods create less acid when eaten as part of a meal. Saliva production increases at mealtime, rinsing away food particles, and neutralizing harmful acids.

Foods such as nuts, cheese, onions, and some teas have been shown to slow growth of decay causing bacteria in the mouth.

Starchy foods:

  • Crackers
  • Breads
  • Cookies
  • Candy

Sticky/slow to dissolve foods:

  • Granola bars
  • Chewy fruit snacks
  • Dried fruit
  • Hard candy

Nutrition

Good nutrition plays a large role in your dental health. Brushing and flossing help keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong. However, a balanced diet will help to boost your body’s immune system, leaving you less vulnerable to oral disease.

How often and what you eat have been found to affect your dental health. Eating starchy foods such as crackers, bread, cookies, and candy causes the bacteria in your mouth feed on it, they then produce acids, which attack your teeth for up to 20 minutes or more. Foods that stick to your teeth or are slow to dissolve give the acids more time to work on destroying tooth enamel.

Frequently Asked Questions.

How often should I visit the dentist?

Visiting your dentist twice a year will help keep your smile looking good, feeling great, and problem free.  We’ll have a good chance to catch a majority of dental issues while they are still small and easy to treat.

Will my dentist know if I'm lying about how much I brush or floss?

Yes, they will know if you are lying about how much you brush or floss. They are able to tell when they use their instruments to check for plaque around the gum line and in between the teeth. When they see how well or not so well you are doing with brushing or flossing, they will discuss why it’s important and how to help keep your mouth happy and healthy.

How do I brush my teeth properly?

Here is a short 1-minute video provided by the American Dental Association demonstrating how to brush your teeth properly.

What kind of toothpaste should I use?

In general, it’s best to choose a toothpaste with fluoride in it and that has been validated with the CDA seal of approval. The Canadian Dental Association CDA Seal provides assurance that the product can provide oral health benefits and improve their oral health in various ways that has been made by the manufacturer of that product. Additionally, it’s best to check with a dentist if you have sensitive teeth or gum disease because that may require you to use a certain type of toothpaste

 

Do electric toothbrushes work better than regular toothbrushes?

Electric toothbrushes work just as well as a regular toothbrush. An electric toothbrush can be helpful if you have trouble holding a toothbrush or have arthritis in your fingers. Overall, it’s not the brush that makes the difference, it’s the brusher.

What's the right way to floss my teeth?
