Basic Dental Care to Keep Your Mouth Healthy

Basic at home care for your teeth can not only keep your smile healthy and beautiful but can also protect your overall health.  Did you know that regular steps to clean your teeth can also prevent common colds or infections of the ears, sinuses and throat.

Brush After Every Meal

After each meal you should plan to thoroughly brush your teeth. This will take several minutes. In fact, most patients do not brush their teeth for nearly enough time. You should plan to brush for 3-5 minutes. Use a soft bristled brush with a compact head and toothpaste that contains fluoride.

Floss Regularly

Flossing is one of the most important steps in preventing cavities and gum disease – but is also one of the most frequently skipped steps. Floss after every meal if you can. Otherwise, you should be flossing at least daily. Many patients find that flossing before bedtime is the easiest for their schedule.

Professional Examinations

In addition to your daily at home care for your smile it is important to visit the dentist twice a year for treatment. These visits allow your dentist to screen for oral cancer, perform dental x-rays and to thoroughly remove built up plaque through a professional cleaning.
