Beautiful teeth make you smile. That's why we at the Q dentists do our best for your most beautiful smile. The basis for beautiful and healthy teeth is holistic oral hygiene. Oral hygiene refers to all measures to keep the gums and teeth healthy.

This includes regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning at our Q dental practice. We remove plaque that cannot be removed during the daily care routine and can lead to discoloration, tartar and even tooth decay and gum disease. We recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year to maintain your oral health and to identify and treat any problems at an early stage.

However, we can't do everything for you; you are responsible for a large part of your oral hygiene yourself. Here are some tips on how you can improve your oral hygiene at home:

Brush your teeth twice a day. Ideally after breakfast and before going to bed. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and fluoride toothpaste. Clean each area of the mouth thoroughly, using circular motions and brushing in hard-to-reach areas such as the molars.

Use dental floss to remove food debris and plaque between the teeth. Take about 40 cm of dental floss and wrap it around your fingers. Insert the floss between your teeth and move it gently back and forth.

Mouthwashes can help to reduce bacteria and plaque and freshen breath. Use a mouthwash after brushing your teeth and rinse your mouth with it for about 30 seconds.

A healthy diet can also help to maintain healthy teeth. Avoid sugary and acidic foods and drinks and make sure you eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables.
