Do you want a top-notch smile and oral health? If so, you need to take advantage of preventive dental care. Preventive dental care can help you avoid small and major dental problems to give you the strong and healthy teeth and gums you need. Some dental problems you can avoid include tooth decay, gum disease, enamel erosion, tooth cracks and more. If you want to stay on top of preventive dental care, you should do the following things:
-Brush: You should use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush twice a day for two minutes each time. This can clean the surfaces of your teeth from the substances that threaten the smile regularly.
-Floss: You should floss your teeth once a day with a flossing tool/product that is easy to use. This is recommended because it can help you maneuver the floss without having to force it into place. Forcing the floss between the teeth can damage the gums. Flossing can help remove the plaque, food particles and other harmful things from between your teeth and along the gumline.
-Attend your dental checkups: You should receive a dental cleaning and exam every six months. This is because the cleaning can remove stubborn tartar and other substances that your oral hygiene routine cannot remove, and the checkup can allow our dental team to give you the tips and instructions you need for a top-notch oral health.
