What is good dental hygiene?
At our office, we are committed to providing you with the highest possible level of dental care. Once you leave our office, however, it is essential that you continue to care for your smile. Good dental hygiene is crucial to maintaining a healthy smile. To keep your smile in the best of health, we encourage you to follow these steps:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
- Floss your teeth at least once a day. The best time to floss is just before you go to bed at night.
- Eat a balanced, nutritious diet. Try to avoid sugary and acidic foods that can lead to tooth decay.
- Visit the dentist at least twice every year. During these biannual visits, your dentist will make sure that your smile is in optimal health. Dr. Allen Smith may also recommend preventive treatments, such as fluoride treatment, to keep your smile healthy and strong.
