Managing your dental hygiene is very important. The younger you start a regimen of daily brushing, flossing, rinsing and regular visits to your dentist, the better off you’ll be in the long run. Even for those who don’t have the luxury of getting to see a dentist on a regular basis, taking their oral care into their own hands (literally) by adopting a routine of home dental maintenance is very effective.
What an Ottawa dentist is able to achieve is pretty amazing. They are so well equipped with the proper tools and techniques that they are able to truly promote the best oral health possible for their patients. However, years ago…roughly 14,000 BD (Before Dentists) there were some people who took it upon themselves to actually do the work of modern dentists to remedy certain dental ailments. “While examining the lower molar of a 14,000-yearold skeleton unearthed in northern Italy, University of Bologna archaeologist Stefano Benazzi discovered the tooth had a large cavity and numerous markings near it. Benazzi and his colleagues reported in Scientific Reports in July that the marks were made with a stone tool in an attempt to remove infected material from the cavity.”
It’s amazing to believe that even that many years ago (before books, encyclopedias, educational institutions and the internet) people had the tools and knowledge to successfully conduct dental procedures. If you haven’t seen your dentist in a while, now is as good a time as any. Your Ottawa dentist is able to use modern techniques and technology to make your teeth and gums healthier as quickly and as painlessly as possible.
