Oral Hygiene in Atlanta, GA

Taking care of your teeth can help you feel more confident in a wide range of situations. Finding the right solutions for oral hygiene in Atlanta can be a positive step toward better dental health. Our dentists specialize in providing services for the entire family from the youngest children to the senior citizens in your life, allowing you to enjoy added convenience when managing your dental hygiene routine.

What Goes Into Oral Hygiene?

Simply put, oral hygiene includes all the things you do at home to keep your teeth and gums healthy combined with regular visits to our office for cleaning and exams. By maintaining a regular schedule that includes brushing, flossing and teeth cleanings, you can reduce the risk of cavities, decayed teeth and gum disease. This can help you retain your natural teeth for longer and can build a solid foundation for your children’s future dental health.

Hints and Tips for Better Dental Hygiene

Our dental staff have compiled a few oral hygiene tips to help you and your family care for your teeth at home. Here are some important tips to keep in mind:

  • Overly hard toothbrushes can sometimes cause permanent damage to tooth enamel. We recommend sticking with a soft or medium bristle when choosing toothbrushes for yourself and your family.
  • Flossing your teeth at least twice daily can keep plaque under control, reducing the chance of cavities and tooth decay. We recommend flossing immediately before brushing to remove as much debris and food material as possible.
  • Regular teeth cleaning visits with our office can do much more than brighten your smile. These visits also offer an opportunity to identify issues like tooth decay and cavities before they become painful emergencies.

We will work with you to set up convenient appointments that work with your busy schedule. By investing just a little time in caring for your teeth and gums, you can retain your natural teeth for life.

Why Does Caring for My Teeth Matter?

Your teeth are vital for biting, chewing and speaking clearly. By taking steps to protect your teeth and gums, you can avoid complications that include bad breath, tooth decay and gaps in your smile. Investing in the right dental care can make a big difference in the health and well-being of yourself and your family. Call us today to schedule your appointment with our office. We look forward to the chance to serve you.

Oral Hygiene for Kids

Instilling the importance of dental hygiene during the formative years of your children’s lives can pay off in healthier teeth and gums for many years to come. Colorful toothbrushes, flavored flosses and kid-friendly toothpaste flavors can be good ways to encourage children to brush longer and to floss their teeth on a regular basis. By providing children with detailed oral hygiene instructions and supervising them during this process, you can ensure that your kids get the right start on the dental health process.

The Fundamentals of Healthy Teeth

While brushing and flossing are critical elements in regular dental care, there are other steps that can reduce the risk of cavities and decay for you and your family members. Making sure to brush with a toothpaste that contains fluoride can protect teeth. Limiting sugary snacks and eating a healthy diet rich in calcium is also important to ensure that your teeth and gums stay in top condition.
