Oral Hygiene in Florida

The best way to have healthy gums and teeth is to practice good dental hygiene. This takes more than just proper dental care at home. Oral hygiene in Florida also requires that you get regular cleanings at a dentist office. Our skilled dental professionals have made a commitment to help you obtain and maintain a healthy smile.

What Is Proper Teeth Hygiene?

When you allow plaque and tartar to build up in your mouth, you could get cavities and gingivitis. The importance of dental hygiene is that it keeps gum disease and tooth decay at bay. You can achieve this by brushing and flossing every day as well as getting professional cleanings twice a year. Contact our dental office now to find out how good oral hygiene can benefit you in other ways as well.

What Are Some Healthy Teeth Tips?

You can have clean, healthy gums and teeth when you have a good at-home dental care routine. The oral hygiene tips below can help you get started:

  • Don’t smoke or chew tobacco products
  • Use toothpaste with fluoride because it strengthens the enamel on your teeth
  • Use a soft- or medium-bristle toothbrush to clean your teeth after every meal
  • Go to a dentist for regular, professional teeth cleanings
  • Avoid consuming too many sugary sodas, juices or other drinks.
  • Thoroughly floss every day

You can establish healthy oral care habits by following these tips. They can help you reduce the risk for bad breath, tooth decay and other oral health problems.

How Do I Maintain Healthy Teeth?

Practicing proper, at-home dental hygiene is important, but it doesn’t make up for not going to the dentist regularly. Getting professional cleanings at a dental office is the best way to prevent cavities, which can lead to tooth loss if you don’t get treatment. It takes both levels of care to have good oral hygiene, which prevents inflammation and infection in your body. Schedule a cleaning with us so that we can help you keep your teeth healthy.

How Do I Teach My Children to Have Good Dental Habits?

Giving your children specific oral hygiene instructions can lay the groundwork for them to have a healthy mouth. Dental care should start at age one and continue throughout their lives to prevent cavities and infections. If your kids fear the dentist or have no interest in dental care, we have activities and tricks that you can try with them. These can include getting a healthy snack after appointments or coloring pictures with dental themes. Learn more about oral care for kids when you call our office.

What Steps Make a Good Dental Care Routine?

Professional teeth cleanings are only part of the equation when it comes to proper oral hygiene. You can reduce your risk for oral health problems further by having an efficient dental hygiene routine. This should consist of daily flossing and twice daily brushing, one of which should be before you go to sleep at night. Your toothpaste needs to have fluoride in it, and your toothbrush needs to reach every spot in your mouth and have soft or medium bristles. Give us a call if you need help choosing products or establishing your daily routine.
