Basic dental hygiene is something that you can practice every day and can make all the difference in the health of your smile. You can keep your oral health in top condition by brushing your teeth twice a day, every day for two minutes at a time, and flossing at least once a day. Dental hygiene also includes your diet. This means limiting your intake of foods that are high in sugars and starches, as well as sugary and acidic drinks. You can also talk with our dentist about how to enjoy a tooth-healthy diet. Finally, you should see the dentist as often as he recommends for your routine cleanings and exams. This will give the dental hygienist the chance to clean your teeth and remove the plaque and tartar your brush can’t reach. The dentist can give you a thorough examination to detect and treat any minor problems before they become major ones. The dentist can also offer you tips on how to improve your oral hygiene routine so that you will have a smile you will enjoy for years to come. If you would like to learn more about how oral hygiene can be used to maintain and enhance the health of your teeth and mouth, plan a visit to our office soon!
