2. Yearly (minimum!) Dentist Cleanings and Checkups

Regular cleanings and checkups are an integral part of preserving your oral health. Without your yearly cleaning, plaque can build up on the teeth and be very hard to remove. Without the watchful eye of a dentist checking up on your teeth, cavities may form in your mouth.

Other problems can also go unnoticed if you wait too long between your checkups, so call us today to schedule your yearly cleaning.

You can take steps towards optimal dental health while away from our office as well. Here are some things you can do at home to avoid dull teeth and ensure your teeth are in the best possible shape.

3. Avoiding Sugar

It’s no secret that sugar causes irreparable damage to your teeth. Avoid consuming large amounts of sugar, and try to switch to sugar free candy and gum to preserve your oral health. Switching to a low-sugar diet is a great choice for your teeth and for the rest of your body as well.

4. Floss Daily for Healthier Gums

Many people don’t realize the importance of flossing daily. It’s very common for people to make excuses or say “I’ll do it tomorrow” about flossing. However, sticking to a daily regiment of flossing prevents cavities and gum disease. Flossing reaches parts of your teeth that go untouched by a toothbrush, which is why it’s so important.

5. Use Antibacterial Mouthwash Daily

Antibacterial mouthwash kills bacteria and stops it from reproducing. It also fights plaque, gingivitis and bad breath. Incorporating a mouthwash into your oral health routine is an excellent choice.
