General Dentistry Tips!

At a very young age we begin to learn about dental health whether it is how long to brush our teeth, flossing or the importance of limiting the amount of sugar is in our diet. Despite this early awareness, many people fail to maintain good dental health throughout their adult life. Brushing and flossing every day are the main areas to stay consistent as well as regular trips to the dentist. There are also different areas one can include in their daily process like mouthwash, and advanced mouth care systems. It is important to keep in mind that a lack of good dental hygiene can lead to cavities and gum disease.

Generally the Dental Solutions office advises you use a toothbrush with softer bristles in order to protect your gums. Our team also recommends a power brush system for the most ideal results. The power brush system helps to break up plaque and bacteria in your mouth. While brushing is the foundation to good dental health, other steps need to be taken to ensure you maintain good dental health.

To begin with, you should understand your own oral health needs, as your oral health depends on your diet, the type and amount of saliva in your mouth, your overall health and your oral hygiene routine. Try to follow a daily routine in consultation with your dentist.

Fluoride is important for kids to help strengthen developing teeth and helps prevent decay in adults. There are toothpastes and mouthwashes containing fluoride that are good to use. We recommending brushing at least twice a day, possibly three times (after every meal). Brushing and flossing will remove plaque, a complex mass of bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth.

It is important for your dental health and general health to limit the consumption of sugary snacks and follow a balanced diet plan. Tobacco in any form will enhance the risk of oral cancer and cause stains on your teeth. Visit your dentist regularly and get your mouth examined.
