What is the best way to care for my teeth?

Taking care of your teeth does not have to be difficult, expensive, or time consuming. Good oral hygiene habits at home require you to follow a few simple guidelines, which can save you money on expensive treatments in the long run.

  • Brush and floss daily to prevent bacteria and plaque from building up. This will help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and infection. Fluoride toothpaste is especially helpful because it has been proven to prevent decay.
  • Be cautious with your teeth; do not expose them to injury or trauma, and do not use them as “tools” for opening or tearing things.
  • Limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks, and drink plenty of water (fluoridated water is preferred).
  • Quit smoking and using tobacco products.
  • Come in to our office for regular checkups! Let our experts give you a preventative cleaning and exam and detect any problems early. Learn more about cleaning and exam discounts with our preferred customer dental plan.

What is the best toothbrush?

The truth is, there is no “best” toothbrush, but there are a few things to keep in mind when you purchase and use your toothbrush.

  • Make sure that your toothbrush, whether manual or electric, has good bristles. These will wear down after about 3 or 4 months, which is when you should replace your toothbrush.
  • Make sure it is not too hard for your teeth and gums. Choose a softness that will not make your gums bleed or become sensitive. (If your gums persistently bleed, this may be a sign of gum disease.)
  • Rinse your toothbrush after every use to keep it clean.
  • Brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste for 2-3 minutes.
  • Do not brush too hard, or you can damage your gums.

Do not share your toothbrush with others.

What are the best dental implants?
