Oral Hygiene in Longwood, FL

No one wants to experience dental decay and disease, but the only way to prevent these dental problems is through regular oral hygiene practices. A proper hygiene regimen is comprised of oral care at home and regular trips to a dentist for complete dental exams and teeth cleanings. You can be confident you’ll receive the highest-quality dental care from the dentists at our practice.

Does Oral Hygiene Have an Impact on Your Dental Health?

Yes, poor dental hygiene can cause you to suffer many dental problems, while proper hygiene lets you enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile. Good hygiene habits allow you to protect yourself from tooth decay, gum disease, and embarrassing bad breath. These dental conditions are caused by a buildup of bacteria, plaque, and tartar on your teeth and gums, which results from insufficient hygiene practices. But, you can avoid these dental dangers by brushing and flossing your teeth every day, as well as scheduling regular dental visits for thorough exams and cleanings. Please contact our office if you would like to learn more about the advantages of proper dental hygiene.

What Should Be Included in Your Dental Hygiene Routine?

It’s rather simple to practice proper oral hygiene, as long as you follow these basic hygiene guidelines:

  1. Every day, brush your teeth following meals, in the morning, and when you’re ready to go to sleep at night
  2. Floss your teeth once a day, but preferably more often
  3. Get professional dental exams and cleanings from a dentist on a regular basis
  4. Be gentle on your tooth enamel by using a soft-bristled toothbrush
  5. Strengthen your enamel with a fluoride-based toothpaste
  6. Consume fewer high-sugar foods and beverages
  7. Avoid tobacco and smoking

How Can You Make Sure That You’re Protected from Dental Problems?

Along with following healthy oral hygiene instructions at home, it’s essential to schedule regular visits with a dentist for oral hygiene in Longwood. This professional dental care can give you a major advantage in preventing decay and disease. The rewards of oral health go beyond your smile and extend throughout your body by improving your resistance to many kinds of infections. Give our practice a call today to arrange your dental appointment.

What Are Some Oral Hygiene Tips For Teaching Your Children Dental Hygiene?

Many parents are surprised to learn that developing healthy oral hygiene in children must begin before their first birthday with a professional dental evaluation. After this initial visit to the dentist, continue returning with your child for teeth cleanings and exams every six months. At our office, we sometimes see children that are scared to receive dental treatment or refuse to practice daily dental care at home. if you experience either of these problems, let us know and we can give you some good ideas to help you overcome these obstacles. We often suggest rewarding positive dentist visits with a healthy treat or toy, and getting the whole family involved in a daily routine. For more on the importance of dental hygiene for children, call our office today.

How Should You Take Care of Your Teeth at Home?

Regular dentist visits are necessary for a healthy smile, but the only way to maintain your dental health in between these appointment is through at-home dental hygiene. All you have to do is remember to brush your teeth when you wake up, after you eat, and before you go to bed. Brush with a fluoridated toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft or medium bristles. And finally, clean between your teeth by flossing once or twice a day. Call us anytime for additional advice or answers about hygiene at home.
