Understanding Dental Hygiene

Your dentist’s top priority is providing you with the highest service and quality dental care. To maintain proper oral health, this level of quality needs to extend to your oral hygiene routine. Taking good care of your teeth at home can help you prevent periodontal disease, tooth decay, and other oral health problems from developing.

It is recommended to brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush and floss daily to prevent the build-up of plaque and tooth decay. If possible, use products containing fluoride to help strengthen teeth. It is essential to keep up with regular professional cleanings from your dentist to prevent oral problems from occurring.

Also, a balanced diet and reducing your snacks can contribute to a healthy smile. Eating too many sugar-filled snacks can increase your risk of tooth decay. Drink a glass of water after every meal to wash down these sugars if brushing your teeth isn’t an option after food intake.

Your dental office can help you establish a dental hygiene routine to keep your teeth healthy and white.
