Our team works hard to maintain the health of your smile while you are in our office. However, taking care of your smile at home is just as important as receiving treatment from our dentists. Dental hygiene involves daily habits that help keep your smile healthy over your lifetime. Good dental hygiene includes the following steps:

  • Brush your teeth after every meal or at least twice a day. It is recommended to use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a toothpaste that contains fluoride.
  • Floss your teeth at least once every day. The most effective time to floss is right before going to bed.
  • Eat a balanced diet. The food you eat can significantly affect your oral health. We recommend limiting your intake of sugary and acidic foods.
  • Come in for visits with our dentists and team at least every six months. During these visits, our team can check for any developing oral issues and help you strengthen your oral health through a thorough and professional dental cleaning and exam.

When you visit our office, our dentists and team will review your dental hygiene habits with you and provide any tools you need to maintain your oral health. To learn more about dental hygiene and schedule an appointment with us, please call or visit our office today!
