Oral Hygiene in Orlando, FL

Is there any way to keep your teeth looking their best and free from dental problems? Yes, good oral hygiene gives you the power to protect your dental health. The only way to maintain healthy hygiene is through daily at-home dental care and twice yearly visits to a dentist for preventative cleanings and checkups. The dentists at our practice offer the professional dental care necessary to maintain the health and strength of your smile.

Why Is Oral Hygiene Important to Your Health?

Healthy teeth and gums are result of the quality of your dental hygiene routine. Healthy hygiene helps you avoid the plaque and tartar that forms on teeth and contributes to dental issues like tooth decay, bad breath, and gum disease. Yet through healthy hygiene habits at home and dentist visits on a regular basis, you can ensure that your smile stays clear of decay and disease. To learn more about the importance of dental hygiene, call our trusted practice today.

Do You Know How to Maintain Good Dental Hygiene?

Many people are unsure of how to take good care of their teeth and gums. Fortunately, our dentists have provided these oral hygiene tips to put a healthy smile within easy reach:

  • Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush that’s small enough to reach every tooth
  • Brush in the morning, after eating, and at night before bed
  • Use a toothpaste with fluoride, which is proven to help strengthen tooth enamel
  • Floss once a day or more
  • Cut down on sweetened drinks and sugar-filled foods
  • Put an end to a smoking or tobacco use habit

Visit a dentist every six months for professional dental cleanings and examinations

How Can You Avoid Developing Tooth Decay or Gum Disease?

At-home oral hygiene is a must for a healthy smile, but just as essential are professional dentist visits. Seeing a dentist regularly ensures that your smile is fully protected against disease and decay. You may not realize that proper dental hygiene is good for both your smile and your body as it can defend against a number of general medical issues. Give our office a call today to schedule a dental visit.

When Is It Time to Get Your Child Involved in a Dental Hygiene Routine?

According to experts in pediatric dentistry, you must take your child to a dentist skilled in oral hygiene in Orlando for a full oral evaluation by the age of one. After, proceed with these dentist visits two times a year for thorough check-ups, advanced cleanings, and oral hygiene instructions for every stage of our child’s development. Over the years, we have seen parents struggle to make children with dental anxiety or indifference about healthy hygiene become more willing to engage in regular dental care. If you’ve experienced either of these problems, here are some ideas to improve your child’s attitude, such as treating your child to a surprise for a pleasant dentist visit or letting your child choose their own toothbrush and toothpaste. Call our office for more helpful hints on dental hygiene for kids.

What’s the Right Way to Practice Oral Hygiene?

The purpose of dental hygiene is to remove the daily buildup of plaque and tartar that can lead to dental problems. It also maintains the clean, healthy results of your regular dentist visits. The ideal home routine revolves around daily brushing after meals, and in the morning, and at night. It also includes flossing once a day, using a toothbrush with gentle bristles to prevent dental damage, and brushing with a fluoride-added toothpaste for its enamel-strengthening ability. We want you to be confident in your oral care routine, so please call our office if we can provide you with any assistance.
