Oral Hygiene in Orlando, FL

It’s hard to underestimate the importance of good oral hygiene. Taking good care of your teeth through at-home habits and dental office visits can mean the difference between strong, healthy teeth and teeth that decay and fall out. Fortunately, dental science has identified exactly what you need to do to maintain a pain-free, beautiful smile.

An Overview of Dental Hygiene

Anyone can learn how to perform proper dental hygiene at home. A few simple daily routines help to clean the teeth and gums of plaque, minimizing or preventing tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath. Daily brushing and flossing are the foundation of a good oral hygiene routine, and so are regular dental checkups and cleanings. Simply give us a call to schedule your dental appointment.

Oral Hygiene Tips

Brushing and flossing can become ingrained habits that we don’t even think about while we’re doing them. If you fall into the habit of not brushing thoroughly, your dental health may suffer. For example, many people focus too much on the front surfaces of their teeth since that’s what people see when they smile. Remember to brush the chewing surfaces and backs of your teeth where plaque and debris are most likely to build up. Your dentist can identify areas in your teeth or mouth that might need extra care or attention when you brush and floss at home.

Why Is A Robust Dental Hygiene Routine Important?

A good daily dental care routine will lower your risk of tooth decay and oral disease. Visits to the dentist will also help to put the odds in your favor, and our dentists will check the entire mouth to make sure you’re in good oral health. Please give us a call if you’re ready to take care of your oral hygiene in Orlando

How Can I Teach Oral Hygiene to My Kids?

Although your child’s primary teeth, also known as baby teeth, will naturally be replaced during the grade school years, it’s important to take care of them now. Baby teeth that decay or fall out too early can get in the way of proper nutrition and speech development. Also, when a tooth is missing too soon, it won’t hold a place for the permanent tooth to come through. As a result, the permanent tooth may come in crooked. Take care of your child’s teeth by using a soft, damp cloth to clean the baby’s gums and first tooth. Eventually, move on to a soft, small toothbrush that’s made for toddlers. Call us for a dental appointment to learn more about the importance of dental hygiene for children.

How Can I Establish a Good Dental Routine?

Getting rid of plaque and tartar through regular brushing, flossing and dental visits is key to having healthy teeth. Beyond that, maintain healthy teeth by paying attention to what you eat and drink. Most people are aware that sugar consumption can promote tooth decay, and that it’s beneficial to limit your sugar intake. It also pays to be careful of consuming too many acidic drinks like coffee, citrus juice and wine because the acid they contain can wear away tooth enamel. When you visit one of our dentists for a checkup and cleaning, you will receive oral hygiene instructions that are customized for your oral health.
