Good oral health extends past your smile
During your time at our office, our team works hard to improve your oral health. It is essential, however, that you continue taking care of your smile at home through consistent oral hygiene. Good dental hygiene includes a number of daily habits and practices that help to keep your smile healthy and bright. Our dentist and team recommend that you follow these basic steps to help your smile stay in optimal health:
- Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that includes fluoride.
- Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
- Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
- Maintain your regular visits with your dentist every six months.
Regular practice prolongs your oral health
During your visits, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we are providing any needed preventive or restorative treatments.
When you visit your dental team at either of our practices, we will review your dental hygiene habits with you and offer all needed information on any additional steps you can take to further improve your oral health.
