Oral Hygiene in Temple Terrace, FL

If you understand the elements of proper dental hygiene and take a few minutes to practice it every day, you can be repaid with healthy teeth and gums to last you throughout your life.

What Are Dental Hygiene Habits?

Your mouth faces a constant accumulation of plaque. Dental plaque is a film that forms in the mouth, and it’s the primary cause of tooth decay and gingivitis. If plaque isn’t removed through daily brushing and flossing, which form the backbone of a good dental hygiene routine, it will harden into a substance called tartar. Routine visits to the dentist are an important part of maintaining good dental hygiene. Your dentist can remove tartar and prevent it from damaging your teeth.

What Oral Hygiene Tips Suggested by Dentists?

Regular visits to the dentist and daily self-care are the pillars of a good oral hygiene program. Follow these teeth care tips for strong, healthy teeth.

  • Visit the dentist two times each year for checkups and cleanings
  • Use toothpaste that contains fluoride
  • Select a soft-bristled brush
  • Make sure to brush every surface of all your teeth
  • Use dental floss to clean between the teeth
  • Avoid sugary foods

For healthy teeth tips that are specific to your dental health concerns, make an appointment with us to see a dentist.

Why Are Healthy Teeth Important?

Keeping your teeth healthy is a significant part of maintaining excellent oral hygiene and health and understanding the importance of dental hygiene. If your teeth are in great shape, you can confidently eat crunchy fruits and vegetables. You will be able to sleep better if you aren’t tormented by a toothache. Poor oral health can affect so many facets of your life. It can make it hard to get things done in the course of a normal day, and may even make it difficult to talk and laugh. Please call us for an appointment to take control of your oral hygiene in Temple Terrace.

Healthy Dental Habits for Children

Set your children up for a lifetime of confident and healthy smiles by teaching them the value of oral hygiene. Your child should have their first oral health assessment by age one. By taking your child to the dentist on a regular basis, any problems can be spotted early on. Also, the dentist can recommend preventative steps, such as dental sealants, that will benefit your child. When your child visits our office, we go out of our way to provide friendly oral hygiene instructions that your child will be excited to practice at home.

What’s a Good Dental Hygiene Routine to Follow?

A daily dental care routine only takes a few minutes to carry out each day, however, it produces tremendous benefits for your dental health and wellbeing. When you brush, floss and visit the dentist, you can prevent painful tooth decay and gum disease that can impact your quality of life. Contact us today to get an excellent start on an effective oral care routine.
