At Durham Dental Group, the dentist team wants to furnish some uncomplicated tips for oral hygiene. So without further ado:
1.Do… remember you are just cleaning the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the proper angle can gently clean the bacteria away. Once plaque has progressed into tartar, no amount of scrubbing at home can responsibly remove it.
Don’t… vigorously scour your teeth and gums. Your gums could recede, and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want exposed.
2.Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Careful brushing and daily flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.
Don’t… delay visiting your dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth pain or mouth sores.
3.Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves ample time to spend a full two minutes delicately cleaning all the nooks and crannies of your mouth.
Don’t… forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can disrupt an essential routine.
4.Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional.
Don’t… worry if you don’t have the healthiest of mouths. Durham Dental Group can help you get back on track.
