Oral Hygiene in Clearwater, FL

The way to protect yourself from tooth decay, gum disease, and a case of bad breath is with proper oral hygiene. This is easily achieved with daily dental care and regular dentist visits. While your home care routine is in your hands, you can find the professional treatment you need at our dental practice.

Does Oral Hygiene Make a Difference in Your Dental Health?

Absolutely, because it protects your teeth and gums from serious dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Healthy oral care practices eliminate bacteria, food particles, and plaque that accumulate on your teeth. They can lead to bad breath, cavities, and all stages of gum disease if they aren’t removed with daily care and regular professional dental visits. By maintaining a excellent dental hygiene, you can save your smile from dental disease and decay. Please call our office today for more details about creating the best oral care routine.

Do You Know How to Maintain a Healthy Smile?

If you’re unsure of how to properly care for your teeth and gums, you’re not alone. Most people don’t completely understand how to protect and preserve their dental health. But you can easily keep your smile at its best and brightest with these oral hygiene tips:

  • Gently brush and floss your teeth, everyday
  • Brush when you wake up in the morning, and after snacks and meals
  • Floss once a day, but preferably more
  • Select a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush
  • Only use a fluoridated toothpaste
  • Eliminate smoking and tobacco products from your habits
  • Cut down on sweetened foods and drinks – sugar contributes to decay
  • Make regular visits to a dentist to receive professional care

What Can You Do To Help Your Smile Stay Completely Healthy?

In addition to practicing a personal dental hygiene routine every day, you need to schedule regular appointments with a dentist for professional cleanings, exams, and treatments. There’s simply no substitute for professional dental care because only a dentist can detect tooth decay and gum disease, and then provide the restorative treatment you need. Also, good oral hygiene can reduce your risk of developing general medical problems. To get the professional dental care you need, call our practice to arrange an appointment right away.

What Can You Do to Help Your Child Understand the Importance of Dental Hygiene?

As a parent, you bare the burden of establishing proper dental habits with your child. The way to give them a head start on a healthy smile is by taking them for their first dental appointment before they reach age one. This will allow a dentist to detect early signs of dental problems, and you’ll receive oral hygiene instructions to keep your child’s teeth and gums healthy. Throughout the years, you will need to take your child to a dentist twice a year for dental exams. Since many children have no interest in seeing the dentist or taking care of their teeth, we have developed some tips and tricks to make their hygiene experience better. try having them choose their toothbrush and give rewards for good dental appointments. For additional ideas on making hygiene more enjoyable for kids, please call our office.

How Can You Establish a Daily Dental Hygiene Routine?

Along with seeing a dentist for professional oral hygiene in Clearwater, you must practice daily dental care at home to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as they can be. Your routine should involve brushing your teeth several times a day, flossing your teeth at least once a day, using a toothpaste that features fluoride, and brushing with a toothbrush made with soft bristles. Please call if you need additional guidance on an oral hygiene regimen.
