Keeping your mouth clean and healthy is one of our highest priorities. Good oral health doesn’t just prevent cavities, it also prevents gums disease, infection, and other dental issues. Our goal is to give your teeth the best possible chance at lasting a lifetime.

How Does Dental Hygiene Work?

At Ballwin Family Smiles, our dental hygienists work with our patients to provide the following:

  • Routine Cleanings | We recommend visiting our office every six months for a cleaning and exam. Our hygienists can thoroughly clean each tooth and polish your teeth to a shine. The process gets rid of plaque buildup and prevents tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Hygiene Education | While you and your family visit our dental team, we can show you the correct way to take care of your teeth. Regular brushing and flossing can prevent cavities and other dental problems. Our hygienist can also show you the correct way to brush and floss to get the most out of your daily dental habits.
  • Preventative Care | Aside from brushing and flossing, we can show you other treatments and habits that can keep your teeth their healthiest. We may recommend a fluoride treatment application to prevent cavities. You can also talk to us about how your diet affects your teeth.

When you take care of your teeth, you have a better chance of avoiding cavities, infection, and tooth loss. Remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once a day.
