According to recent studies, having a well-maintained and clean smile is essential for your dental health and vital to your overall well-being. With October designated as National Dental Hygiene Month, it's an excellent time to get proactive.
Enjoying a smile that looks good and functions at its best is not something you can take for granted. Maintaining optimal oral health and a vibrant smile requires an effective dental hygiene regimen, a nutritious diet, routine checkups, professional cleanings, and a comprehensive preventive care program.
It's Important to Brush & Floss!
For one thing, a healthy smile depends upon keeping your teeth and gums clean with a daily routine of brushing and flossing. According to the recommendations of the American Dental Association, it is essential to brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Also, take a few minutes to gently floss between the teeth once a day. Removing plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gumline further reduces your risk of dental disease.
Where your toothbrush and floss can't reach
Although maintaining a healthy smile in no small part depends upon keeping your teeth and gums clean at home, even those with the most diligent brushing and flossing routines can't reach every nook and cranny between the teeth and gums.
In addition to routinely performing professional cleanings to remove any accumulated plaque and tartar from areas that your toothbrush and flossed did not reach, our hygienists will instruct you in the best homecare methods to keep your smile fresh and bright.
We consider patient education an integral component of patient care and do all we can to give patients of all ages the resources and information required to maintain good oral health.
