When you visit our office, our dentists and hygienists will review your home care routine with you and make recommendations how you can improve it. Maintaining good oral hygiene at home is key to ensuring that your smile remains healthy and beautiful. While our dentists and team do everything possible to protect and preserve your teeth, most of the responsibility for maintaining good oral health falls on you.
Good oral hygiene includes a number of daily habits and practices. These include:
- Brushing your teeth at least twice a day. It is especially important that you brush before going to bed at night. When brushing use a soft-bristled toothbrush and an ADA-approved fluoridated toothpaste.
- Floss daily. This removes the plaque, food debris, and bacteria from between your teeth and helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other problems from developing in those areas.
- Eat a balanced, nutritious diet. Maintaining a healthy diet and limiting your intact of sugary and acidic foods reduces the likelihood of developing tooth decay.
- Visit our dentists at least twice each year for a dental cleaning and exam. This enables us to monitor your oral health and quickly provide treatment for any problems that are developing.
