Good Tips for Dental Care

Good Tips for Dental Care

Proper dental care is key to reducing your risks of oral health problems, including tooth decay and gum disease. A combination of home dental hygiene and professional care offers the greatest level of protection. Here are some tips for taking good care of your teeth and gums.

Get Check-Ups Regularly

Your ideal schedule for dental cleanings can vary depending on your age and oral health risks, but most patients are advised to visit at least twice each year. During check-ups, our dentist will clean your teeth and examine them for signs of problems. Broad treatment availability is valuable in case you have oral health issues that need to be addressed quickly.

Brush and Floss Every Day

You should brush your teeth at least twice each day using a toothbrush and toothpaste approved by the ADA. Once per day, you should floss between your teeth with the waxed or non-waxed dental floss of your choice.

Use Additional Cleaning Strategies

To remove food particles lodged between the teeth, you can use toothpicks. If you have bad breath, consider scraping your tongue to remove more bacteria each time you brush. Mouthwash can also freshen your breath and further reduce your risks of gum disease and tooth decay.

Good dental care requires diligence and the right tools for the job. For the best in-office care, a combination of proper training, experience and equipment will support your goals. You can schedule a consultation with our dentist in Northridge to learn more about the best dental regimen for you.
