Developing Good Dental Habits
- Posted on: Aug 2 2019
Benjamin Franklin once said that it’s easier to prevent bad habits than to break them. At Flax Dental in Atlanta we couldn’t agree more, especially when it comes to dental care and dental health.
For parents, teaching your children good oral hygiene techniques early in life will benefit their smile throughout their life. You’ll help them prevent tooth decay, plaque, and gum disease.
This holds for adults, too. By brushing your teeth twice every day, you remove the plaque that causes cavities. Plaque is that soft and sticky film that builds up on your teeth, a process that happens around the clock. It’s caused by food debris and bacteria.
It’s just as important to floss at least once a day. Flossing gets the plaque between your teeth, where your toothbrush cannot reach.
Scheduling twice-yearly checkups at our office is also very important. Regular checkups can prevent cavities and gum disease. Each checkup also includes an oral cancer screening.
Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime! At Flax Dental in Atlanta, we want the best possible dental health for each of our patients. Our services include restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!
