Oral Hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean to prevent dental problems, especially the common dental caries, cavities, and bad breath. There are oral pathologic conditions in which a good oral hygiene is required for healing and regeneration of the oral tissues. These conditions included gingivitis, periodontitis, dental traumas such as subluxation, oral cysts, and after wisdom tooth extraction.

Oral hygiene should be at the top of our list if we want to have a healthy body. Neglecting to take care of our teeth will only lead to much pricier dental treatments a problem that may be easily avoided if we focus more on prevention rather than cure.

To ensure a great dental hygiene regime it is imperative that you take time to make sure that you really brush your teeth consistently and routinely ideally two times each day. It is also recommended to brush after every meal if you are comfortable. To lessen the possibility of accumulating cavities, gum infections, tooth decay and other issues with your teeth you must follow a healthy diet plan, brush and start flossing your teeth two times each day.

I’ve been going to Dr. Desai for several years. He and his staff are the best!! He uses state of the art tools/equipment. He is always very honest and upfront when things need be done and with his pricing. I’ve never had a negative experience. He always makes sure I understand what he’s doing and answers all question I have. Also, they are quick and efficient here. I’m never waiting a long time to be seen and once I’m in the chair they make the appointment go quickly.

I have been their patient for about two years now and let me say Dr. Desai is great! The whole staff is friendly and polite. Went in for a cleaning today, and let me just say that Dr. and his assistant Wendy were AMAZING! Was out in less than 30 min with super clean teeth.
