We encourage you to maintain proper dental hygiene habits for a lifetime of healthy teeth free of oral problems. Many patients struggle with maintaining an oral care routine that works, but our team is happy to help. It’s important to develop the following four dental health care habits to prevent dental conditions and keep your smile in good shape:

1. Tooth brushing: You can effectively remove bacteria from the surface of your teeth by using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste twice day. Furthermore, brushing your teeth also protects your gums and reduces your risk of oral infection and tooth decay.

2. Flossing: This daily dental habit can remove food particles from between your teeth to prevent dental health complications such as gum disease.

3. Rinsing: Taking at least 30 seconds at least once a day to rinse with mouthwash can remove lingering bacteria, protect your smile from gum disease and strengthen your teeth with fluoride.

4. Dental checkups: Twice a year, we encourage you to visit our dentist and team for dental cleanings and exams to prevent oral health conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease.
