Keeping your teeth and mouth clean is important. This can help to prevent cavities, or issues that are more serious. This could include gingivitis, root canals, or abscesses. By going to regular dental appointments when recommended, you can help to prevent a larger issue and costly dental bill. There are also some tips you can do at home to help keep your teeth in the best condition possible. If you need advice on how to care for your teeth, make sure to contact us. We can help to recommend the proper way to clean, brush, and floss your teeth. We can also set up a dental examination for you, so we can inspect the teeth thoroughly. This is beneficial for your teeth, as well as your overall health.
Make sure to go to regular Dental Examinations
One of the most important things you can do is to make sure to go to regular dental appointments. Depending on your teeth and mouth, there could be one examination a year, or two examinations that are six months apart. We will take x-rays of your mouth. This way we can see the interior condition of the teeth, as well as seeing the roots that are below the gums. This is beneficial because if there is an issue, we can help to catch it before it turns into something much worse. If you ever notice anything out of the norm like pain or a chipped tooth, make sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. By having a chipped tooth looked at immediately, you can help to prevent an abscess or a much larger problem from forming. We will also inspect the exterior of the teeth, to help ensure there is not any tartar or plaque build up.
Brush your Teeth at least twice a day
Between dental visits, there are some things you can do to help keep your teeth in the best condition possible. Make sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day. Ideally, you should brush the teeth after every meal. This can help to clean the teeth on all sides. If you notice any staining or discoloration, make sure to spend a longer amount of time on these areas to clean them. Also use toothpaste that is recommended by dentists. This can help improve the cleanliness of your teeth as you brush them. Also make sure to brush your tongue. This is important because germs and bacteria can form on the tongue. It will then spread to other areas in your mouth. This can also cause bad breath. If you are unsure of what type of toothpaste or toothbrush to use, make sure to contact us. We can recommend what type and kind would be right for you.
Floss regularly to help prevent cavities
Besides brushing your teeth, flossing is also an important task. This can help to remove any food particles that might have been stuck between the teeth. By flossing, you can help to prevent the build up of tartar and plaque. Flossing is one of the most ignored parts of oral health, but it is one of the most important.
