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.

  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

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.
