Routine dentistry and regular tooth cleanings are an essential aspect of maintaining a healthy smile, but you can do your part at home to protect your oral health. Proper oral hygiene will help you see lasting results from your cosmetic dentistry as well as prevent serious problems from occurring. Here are some tips for maintaining oral hygiene habits between regular cleanings from Sanchez Dental.
Healthy Habits for Great Teeth
There are many things you can do at home to boost the health of your teeth:
- Brush at least twice per day and floss every day.
- Use fluoride toothpaste, even if your drinking water is fluoridated.
- Reduce your consumption of sugary and acidic foods and beverages.
- Use antibacterial mouthwash to control bacteria populations in the mouth.
- Schedule routine cleanings at the dentist’s office.
It’s also important to stop using tobacco products and other bad habits that can lead to dental problems. Your dentist can help you identify risk factors for your teeth and help you create an oral hygiene routine that will protect your dental health for years to come.
