Oral Hygiene Explained

Oral hygiene procedures are designed to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Proper teeth cleaning procedures are considered the most important of these treatments. Over time, tartar and other deposits can build up on your teeth. Regular teeth cleanings can remove these deposits, leaving your teeth and gums cleaner and healthier. Routine brushing and flossing at home can augment these in-office procedures for the brightest smile possible.

Implementing Proven Oral Hygiene Tips

For most patients, sticking to softer toothbrushes can ensure the best results. Softer bristles can more easily reach between teeth and are less likely to damage the enamel, allowing you to brush longer and more effectively. Most dentists recommend flossing your teeth before brushing to maximize the amount of plaque removed during the process. Brush your teeth for at least two minutes, spending equal time on the front and the back of each tooth. Our office recommends scheduling a teeth cleaning appointment twice each year to keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean.

Focusing on Healthy Teeth

A few lifestyle choices can make a big difference in the appearance and health of your teeth. Avoiding tobacco products altogether can help your teeth look brighter and whiter. Restricting the number of sweets in your diet and brushing thoroughly after consuming these items can protect your teeth against cavities and decay. Scheduling regular exams with our office is the best way to pinpoint any issues with your teeth or gums before serious damage can occur.

Educating Children About Dental Hygiene

Stressing the importance of dental hygiene to the youngest members of your family can allow them to enjoy better dental health in their later lives. Establishing a regular dental hygiene routine that includes flossing, brushing and regular visits to our office can be a solid step toward healthier teeth. By demonstrating good flossing and brushing techniques for your children, you can build the foundation for a lifetime of brighter smiles.

The Basics of an Oral Hygiene Routine

Our expert dental staff can provide you with detailed oral hygiene instructions tailored to your precise set of needs. We will work with you to determine the best ways to clean and care for your teeth and gums, allowing you to enjoy fresher breath, whiter teeth and a healthier mouth now and for many years to come. By choosing us for all your dental care needs, you can be assured you’ll receive the best treatment plans for every member of your family.
