We can even provide detailed oral hygiene instructions that can improve the way you care for your teeth at home.

Basics of Dental Hygiene

Brushing your teeth after every meal and snack can prevent food from sticking to your teeth and can protect your gums against gingivitis and other diseases. Regular brushing is one of the most important tools in your at-home dental care arsenal. Flossing is also important and can allow you to remove plaque and food particles that may sometimes get stuck between your teeth. One of the best ways to protect the health of your teeth and gums, however, is to make regular appointments for professional cleanings and exams with our dental office.

Oral Hygiene Tips for Healthier Teeth and Gums

Between regular cleanings and dental examinations, we recommend flossing at least twice daily. Waxed dental floss is less likely to injure gums and can provide greater comfort for you and your family members. Flossing before you brush can allow you to remove a greater percentage of plaque and food to help keep your gums and your teeth cleaner and healthier. Of course, these at-home solutions cannot substitute for regular visits to our office. We can provide you with the professional oral hygiene treatments needed to enhance the dental health of every member of your family.

Three Keys to Healthy Teeth

Healthier teeth and gums can be achieved with just a few steps. Brushing and flossing every day is one major component of your dental health plan. Maintaining a healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals and with plenty of calcium can also help you build stronger teeth and bones. Finally, making regular trips to our office for check-ups and cleanings is critical to ensuring the healthiest teeth for yourself and your entire family.

Oral Hygiene for Kids

The importance of dental hygiene during the early years of your children’s lives cannot be overstated. Making sure children get the right start maintaining their dental health can pay off in stronger teeth, fewer cavities and improved overall physical condition. By investing time and effort in teaching your children the right strategies for flossing, brushing and caring for their teeth and gums, you can enjoy the best results for your children’s future.

Instituting a Regular Dental Hygiene Routine

Incorporating oral hygiene into your everyday activities can help you feel healthier and more confident. Regular teeth cleaning visits can freshen your breath and reduce the risk of cavities and tooth decay, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of cleaner teeth and a more brilliant smile. Call us today to schedule an initial consultation. We look forward to the opportunity to provide you and your family with the best in dental care.
