|When you practice good oral health care it can protect your body, give you more confidence and also more energy to live life actively. Our office has some friendly tips to keep you happy, healthy, and on track with your busy life.
Tips Number One, Two, and Three
See our office a little more. This isn't said to increase our business revenue. If that's your first thought, give us a second to explain. Most adults should see our dentist every 90 days for a routine cleaning. When we perform them, they wash out all those hard to reach places containing bacteria. If you don't believe it, come see us and we will show you what is hiding in just 3 months. You'll be surprised.
Start your kids young. Start by establishing healthy oral habits with your younger children to teach them how important oral care is. Let them know this can result in a lifetime of white, cavity-free teeth. To avoid that dentist drill, it requires daily flossing, brushing (children's toothpaste) and mouthwash.
Floss followed by chewing sugar free gum. After you have eaten a meal or snack. It's not healthy to brush your teeth more than 2-3 times a day. Supplement brushing by flossing then chewing some sugar free gum. This removes food particles, fights bacteria trying to form, and activates the saliva gland. Saliva works to fight off sugar and acids.
Tips Number Four and Five
Keep oral care products at work. Studies show you are over twice as likely to use them if they are kept at work as opposed to the car, purse or briefcase. Stock up with a soft tip brush, floss, and alcohol-free mouthwash that contains fluoride.
Use alcohol-free mouthwash. Just because it is burning doesn't mean it's healthy. Ingredients are what count, not if it burns. Alcohol can erode fillings and dental work. Use a fluoride mouthwash and protect your real teeth as well as dental work.
