Oral Hygiene in Dalton, GA

Your smile is only as healthy as your oral hygiene habits. The way to protect your teeth and gums from tooth decay and gum disease is with daily at-home dental care and regular dental exams and cleanings from a dentist near you. Be assured that you can trust our experienced dentists for professional oral hygiene in Dalton that maintains the health of your smile.

What Does Oral Hygiene Do For Your Dental Health?

Your hygiene is responsible for the health of your teeth and gums. Daily brushing and flossing to remove plaque and bacteria can help prevent the development of tooth decay and gum disease. And dentist visits can provide the deep cleanings and dental checkups necessary to preserve your dental health. Including all of these in your hygiene routine can maintain the health of your smile. For more on the protection that good oral care provides, call our office today.

How Can You Maintain Your Dental Health?

The quality of your dental hygiene will determine the health of your smile. Following these oral hygiene instructions can keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible:

  • Brush your teeth several times a day
  • Floss every day
  • Pick out a soft-bristled toothbrush to protect your tooth enamel
  • Choose a toothpaste that lists fluoride on the label
  • Curb your intake of sweetened foods and beverages
  • Stop using tobacco and smoking
  • Make twice-a-year visits to a dentist for dental cleanings and exams

Add all of these tips into your life to prevent dental problems and preserve your oral health.

What Should You Do to Prevent Tooth Decay and Gum Disease?

There’s no denying the importance of dental hygiene at home, but just as essential are professional dental cleanings and checkups on a regular basis. You need this professional care to prevent, detect, and treat tooth decay and gum disease. Plus, good oral care contributes to the health of your body by reducing your risk of many medical problems. Please call our office for an appointment to protect your dental and medical health.

What’s the Right Dental Hygiene Routine for Your Child?

You need to start developing healthy oral hygiene in your child while they are still extremely young. In fact, you need to schedule your child’s first dentist visit before they turn one year-old. These visits need to continue on a regular basis throughout their childhood. We realize that some kids are uncomfortable with dental visits or daily hygiene, so we have some helpful hints for a better dental experience. Try letting your child pick out their favorite color toothbrush or treating them to a healthy surprise for being good at the dentist. For more creative ideas to improve your child’s dental care attitude, call our practice today.

What Are Some At-Home Oral Hygiene Tips?

Since you will only see the dentist a couple of times each year, you must maintain your dental health with daily at-home dental care. All this needs to include are daily brushing and flossing, using a soft-bristled toothbrush that fits comfortably in your mouth, and getting a toothpaste with added fluoridate for tooth enamel protection. If you have any questions about your hygiene habits at home, please contact our dental office for knowledgeable advice.
