Oral hygiene is extremely important. While it may seem easy to go to bed without brushing and flossing, it is absolutely imperative that you take these steps to keep your mouth healthy.
When oral hygiene is neglected, problems can arise. Tooth decay, gingivitis, gum disease, and even worse issues such as heart disease, can all stem from poor oral hygiene. In order to prevent these ailments and others, you can take simple steps to keep your pearly whites nice and healthy.
Brushing your teeth for two minutes a day with fluoride toothpaste is a fantastic first step in keeping your oral health in tip top shape. You should brush in the morning when you wake up and then before you go to bed. Don’t forget to brush your tongue. Before you do your final brushing, you should floss to remove any plaque that may have built up over the day. By flossing first, you bring plaque to the surface, so it is easily removed by brushing after.
Besides brushing and flossing, you should also be seeing us for regularly scheduled dental cleanings. For most patients this is twice a year, but we will let you know if we need to see you more often. It is necessary to get that deeper clean and check-up to ensure no cavities or other oral problems have popped up since your last visit.
Preventative care is vital to your oral health. In order to prevent tooth decay, it’s essential that you take the first steps in keeping your mouth happy and healthy. Contact Lifetime Dental Excellence in Clawson, Michigan for a dental appointment today.
