Good oral hygiene incorporates both your at-home dental care as well as the professional treatments you receive in our office. Important aspects of your oral hygiene include:
- Brushing daily. You should brush at least twice each day, using a soft-bristled toothbrush and ADA-approved, fluoridated toothpaste.
- Flossing daily. This removes plaque, food debris and other decay-causing factors from between your teeth and under your gum line. We recommend flossing before you brush.
- Eating a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of sugary and acidic foods improves your overall health and helps prevent cavities and gum disease.
- Preventive care. Visiting our office every six months for dental cleanings and exams allows us to diagnose and treat problems quickly.
