How To Keep Your Teeth Healthy At Home
While it’s important to schedule your annual or bi-annual routine procedures, there are also so many things that you can do at home to keep your teeth healthy and happy. We all grew up knowing that it was important to brush your teeth and floss but there is so much more that you can do. Let’s learn about some of our favorite ways to keep your teeth healthy at home.
- Brush your teeth at least 2x per day, when you wake up, before bed, or anytime after you’ve eaten.
- Floss your teeth in between meals or before brushing your teeth.
- Be aware of your sugar intake.
- Never use your teeth to open bottles or packaging.
- Swap out your toothbrush every three months.
- Keep up with your routine dental visits.
- Do not ignore any oral pain.
- Repair any chips or cracks immediately.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet of whole and healthy foods. Preventative care is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health,so you can keep your smile for years to come. Our prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth. Prevention services help avoid any serious and/or costly dental problems that may occur down the road if you are not careful or taking care of your teeth. Preventative care is truly the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
