Preventive Care

Taking care of your teeth is vital at all stages of your life, regardless of age. Maintaining good oral hygiene habits at home and regularly visiting your dentist can ensure your smile remains healthy and dazzling for many years. There are some straightforward methods you can adopt to prevent the accumulation of plaque and tooth decay, including:

  • ¬†Brush your teeth twice daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to eliminate food particles and plaque from the tooth surfaces. Remember to brush the top surface of your tongue to eradicate any additional plaque-causing food particles and maintain fresh breath.
  • Floss your teeth daily and use mouthwash to eliminate bacteria and keep your breath fresh. Toothbrushes can’t effectively clean the spaces between your teeth, so harmful bacteria can build up there. Flossing and using mouthwash can help eliminate plaque and food debris from these areas, even under the gum line.
