Dental Health Improvement Tips

dental health improvement tipsGood dental habits are the cornerstone of good dental health. Are you doing the best possible job of taking care of your teeth? Many people are not. This may be a great time to review your dental care routine and brush up on those areas you may have left undone in the past.

1. Cleaning
You need to brush about twice a day, but a quick swipe is not enough. Brush for at least two minutes at a time with a fluoride toothpaste, and make sure you get all surfaces of your teeth. Finish by brushing your tongue. Use dental floss to clean between each set of teeth. A floss threader may be necessary to clean around braces or dental bridges.

2. Checkups
Many people put off dental checkups and cleanings because they are busy, but a major dental health problem can put an even bigger dent in their schedule as well as their budget. Visit us every six months for a dental exam and professional cleaning, and your smile will thank you for it.

3. Diet
Sweet, starchy foods are some of the worst offenders when it comes to damaging your dental health, but failing to eat the right things can also cause problems. Try to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and calcium-rich foods along with lean proteins and whole grains to make sure your teeth and gums get all the nutrients they need.

Preventative treatments, including dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and orthodontics, may also help you improve your smile. Contact us today to find out more or to schedule your appointment with our expert in gum disease in Phoenix.
