Healthy Oral Health Habits

  1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Brushing is an important part of a healthy oral hygiene routine.
  2. Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months. If you are an aggressive brusher, you may want to replace your toothbrush when the bristles begin to fray.
  3. Don’t forget to floss your teeth. Flossing removes plaque and debris between the teeth. When you don’t thoroughly clean the teeth, it may lead to tooth decay, cavities, or even gum disease.
  4. Schedule preventive care visits. Visiting the dentist at least twice a year for preventive care visits can improve your oral health, During a preventive care visit, your dentist can thoroughly examine your smile and recommend any treatment you may need.
  5. Get regular dental cleanings. Our experienced dental hygienist will perform a dental cleaning to remove plaque and tarter buildup that normal brushing and flossing cannot reach.
  6. Quit smoking and tobacco use. Smoking and tobacco use can lead to dry mouth, and may even increase your risk of developing gum disease and oral cancer.
  7. Use an antibacterial rinse. Mouthwash can help reduce plaque and bacteria in the mouth.
