Brushing and flossing on a regular basis can provide multiple benefits for one's oral health. However, there are other ways in which people can unintentionally harm the health of their teeth. Many people know that sugar is bad for the enamel of one's teeth but may not realize other foods can cause as much damage…
Oral Hygiene At Home May Not Be Enough For Healthy Teeth
We will identify and remove any signs of plaque or infection from your teeth at our dental office.
Even with frequent brushing and flossing, there are other areas of your mouth that toothbrush bristles and floss can't reach. Along with that, there can be signs of infection or plaque buildup that you won't be able to notice easily. That's where our dental office can help.
At our dental office, we provide regular dental checkups, treatments, and services to help keep your teeth and mouth healthy. We can detect and eliminate any early warning signs of oral health issues before they get worse. Regular checkups can help to provide professional cleaning to the teeth as well.
This cleaning is more detailed than what a toothbrush or floss can accomplish. During the cleaning, we will remove excess bits of plaque, checking each tooth and the gum line for any signs of pockets. If we find any pockets, we will go over the next step.
It is essential to receive a dental checkup at least twice a year, or once every six months. This way, we can keep tabs on your teeth, oral health, and any other areas of concern. Following a dental checkup at our dental office, we will also go over proper oral hygiene techniques at home.
Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes per session. Also, floss at least once a day, preferably before going to bed. If you need, use floss when there is something stuck between our teeth and don't let it sit there too long.

Flossing is an essential oral hygiene habit, and your dental practice can show you the right way to do it. The process can dislodge bits of plaque and food stuck between the teeth. That reduces the plaque and bacteria buildup, preventing cavities and decay. Many people brush the teeth, but flossing is not as common.…
