Improving Your Oral Health

Our dentist and team are committed to helping you improve your oral health. When you visit our office, we will review your at-home care with you to help you develop a consistent oral hygiene routine. This can help keep your mouth and smile healthy so that you can continue to enjoy your teeth for years to come.

Good oral hygiene includes both professional care and a number of daily habits at home, including:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice each day or after every meal. We recommend that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and an ADA®-approved, fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Flossing daily. This removes plaque and food debris that may be trapped between your teeth.
  • Eating a balanced, nutritious diet. By maintaining a good diet and limiting the amount of sugary and acidic foods you eat, you can prevent tooth decay from developing.
  • Continuing to visit our dentist every six months for preventive care. This way, any developing problems can be treated quickly before they can cause significant damage to your smile and oral health.

If you have any questions about oral hygiene or if you want to make an appointment with our experienced dentist, call our office today. We look forward to helping you care for your smile!
