During your time at our office, our team works hard to improve your oral health. However, it is essential that you continue caring for your smile at home through consistent oral hygiene. Good dental hygiene includes many daily habits and practices that help you maintain good oral health and smile. Our dentist recommends that you follow these basic steps to help your smile stay in optimal health:

  • Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste free of fluoride.
  • Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
  • Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
  • Maintain your regular visits to the dentist every six months. We provide professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to ensure we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments during these visits. Our polishing pastes are free of fluoride, flavorings, oils, and dyes.
