The Fayetteville Dentist is committed to the dental health of each one of our patients. Part of what we do involves sharing information, and in this blog post we offer up some tips for oral hygiene.
1.Do… remember that brushing your teeth is about clearing the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle brushing at the proper angle can gently clean the bacteria away. Once plaque has settled into tartar, no measure of brushing will remove remove it.
Don’t… vigorously scour your teeth and gums until your gums bleed.
2.Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Proper brushing and dedicated flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.
Don’t… put off seeing us about sore or bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity or mouth sores.
3.Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves ample time to clean all the nooks and crannies of your mouth. We recommend a minimum of two minutes of brushing.
Don’t… forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can interrupt an important routine.
4.Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional. Cancer screenings, cavity checks, and removal of tartar from the teeth are vital for maintaining a healthy mouth.
Don’t… worry if you don’t have the healthiest of mouths. We can help you get back on track.
5.Do… enjoy your mouth and all the wonders it is capable of.
Don’t… put off coming in to find out about everything a full-service practice can do for your smile.
