How to Maintain Good Oral Hygiene
Did you know that there are billions of bacteria living inside your mouth? While not all these bacteria are harmful, many of them can cause plaque buildup that eventually leads to issues like tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Every day, you should be taking steps to prevent bacteria from accumulating and damaging your teeth and gums.
Dr. Bryan Sorgen recommends the following dental health tips:
- Brush after meals (at least twice per day)
- Floss at least once per day
- Use antimicrobial mouthwash
- Minimize sugary and starchy foods
- Reduce the amount and frequency of acidic foods and drinks
- Try to cut down on smoking or give it up altogether
Get Your Mouth Healthy with Preventative Dentistry
Another essential part of maintaining clean and healthy teeth and gums is going to the dentist for regular teeth cleaning. During your bi-annual appointments, our dental professionals will check your teeth and gums to make sure they are in good condition. If there are any problems, we can inform you of your treatment options. We will also use specialized and powerful equipment to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth—often called a “scale and polish.”
