Top 5 Do’s And Don’ts Of Dental Hygiene
- Posted on: Aug 17 2018
Welcome to the blog of Flax Dental, your dentist in Atlanta. We want to deliver some easy tips for oral hygiene.
1.Do… remember, as you brush your teeth, you are just clearing the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the proper angle can gently clean the bacteria away. Once plaque has progressed into tartar, no amount of scrubbing at home can responsibly remove it.
Don’t… vigorously scour your teeth and gums until your gums pull back and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want unprotected.
2.Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Thorough brushing and daily flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.
Don’t… delay visiting your our office about sore or bleeding gums, tooth pain or mouth sores.
3.Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves ample time to spend a full two minutes cautiously cleaning all the nooks and crannies of your mouth.
Don’t… forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can disrupt a critical routine.
4.Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits with Flax Dental for cleaning and examination. Cancer screenings, cavity checks, and removal of tartar from the teeth are vital for maintaining a healthy mouth.
Don’t… worry if you don’t have the healthiest mouth. Flax Dental can help you get back on track.
5.Do… enjoy your mouth and all the wonders it is capable of.
