Tips for Better Dental Checkups

It's no secret that dental hygienists spend a lot of time looking in patients' mouths. But what exactly do they look for when you are sitting in their chair?

Plaque—A First Indicator

  • Plaque is a sticky, colorless film of bacteria that develops when sugary or starchy foods are left on the surface of your teeth.
  • Gingivitis and tooth decay can be caused by plaque buildup.

Gingivitis—Know the Signs

  • Symptoms of gingivitis include gums that are soft, swollen, red and bleed easily during brushing and flossing.
  • Brushing alone may not be enough to fend off gingivitis. Use a mouth rinse morning and night for added protection against plaque and gingivitis, and to help reach the areas where your toothbrush may have missed.

Tools & Techniques

Put these tools and techniques to use, so that you can be confident at your next dental check-up.


Take enough time to do a thorough job—2 minutes each time!


Not all mouth rinses are designed to protect against gingivitis. Many only kill bad breath germs, so make sure to check the label to ensure the rinse you choose fights plaque and gingivitis.


Be sure to floss daily and don't forget your back teeth. Flossing before brushing is best to remove plaque in spaces between teeth so toothpaste and rinse can do their jobs.
