We have many patients who want a step-by-step guide on how to set up a good oral hygiene routine and what types of things should be included in this routine. Please consider this page as your oral hygiene guide!
Below are the 4 things that should always be a part of your daily dental hygiene routine:
We all know that we should be brushing our teeth every day. But there’s a technique that can help you brush your teeth correctly.
Flossing should be as important to your routine as brushing is. If you don’t floss, you’re allowing plaque to build up in between the teeth, where your brush can’t reach. We see many cavities forming between the teeth because people are forgetting to floss. Below are some tips on how to floss correctly.
Many people don’t know that cleaning your tongue should be as important a step as brushing and flossing. The same kinds of bacteria that accumulate on the teeth, are building up on your tongue as well. Below are some ways to make sure you’re keeping your tongue healthy and clean:
Please remember to rinse your mouth after you clean your tongue. This will wash away any remaining bacteria.
Lastly, making sure to visit Dr. Nora Balota every six months for a dental cleaning and exam can be a great way to care for your dental health. Not only will you receive a professional dental cleaning, but you’ll also get a comprehensive dental exam. During this exam, Dr. Balota will be able to detect any potential problems early on, when they’re simpler and more cost effective to treat.
