Good oral hygiene includes both professional care and a number of daily habits at home, including:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice each day or after every meal. We recommend that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and an ADA®-approved, fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Flossing daily. This removes plaque and food debris that may be trapped between your teeth.
  • Eating a balanced, nutritious diet. By maintaining a good diet and limiting the amount of sugary and acidic foods you eat, you can prevent tooth decay from developing.
  • Continuing to visit our dentist every six months for preventive care. This way, any developing problems can be treated quickly before they can cause significant damage to your smile and oral health.
