Steps to Increase Your Oral Hygiene After a Cleaning
While regular checkups and exams will help identify problems and prevent tooth decay, there are a number of additional steps you can take at home to minimize your chances of experiencing decay or related problems:
- Brush your teeth at least twice daily, but ideally after each meal.
- Floss daily, ideally after each meal.
- Use a fluoride toothpaste and undergo regular fluoride treatments twice a year.
- Help ward off cavities by stimulating your mouth’s production of saliva, which helps dilute acids that can damage your teeth. Chewing sugarless gum is a good way to do this, particularly if you’re on the go.
- Avoid or minimize your intake of sweets, especially hard candies or caramels that tend to coat the inside of your mouth in sugar. When you do consume sugary foods, brush and floss as soon as possible after to reduce your chances of developing tooth decay.
By following these tips and visiting us regularly for dental exams, you can greatly reduce your risk of problems and help ensure a long-lasting, healthy and beautiful smile.
