Oral Hygiene in Atlanta, GA

Good dental health is not a given, but fortunately, some simple steps can help you to achieve and maintain good oral health for life. There are some basics that everyone call follow, but for advice that is tailored to your unique teeth hygiene concerns, contact us for a dental appointment today.

What Are Dental Hygiene Practices?

Dental or oral hygiene is the practice of caring for your teeth and gums on a routine basis, and it typically has three parts: Brushing twice a day, flossing once a day and visiting a dentist twice a year. By following those simple steps, you’ll remove harmful plaque and tartar. You’ll also be able to address any problems with your teeth early on before they become more challenging and expensive to treat.

Oral Hygiene Tips

The first step to having healthy teeth is to visit a dentist. Follow their oral hygiene instructions at home for healthier teeth and gums. Also, what you eat every day can help to promote good oral hygiene and health. Try to avoid sugary foods and drinks, and limit beverages with a high acid content, like soda. Protect your teeth from injury during sports by wearing a mouthguard. Your dentist may make additional recommendations for your dental health, such as the use of fluoride treatments or dental sealants.

How to Have Healthy Teeth and Avoid Serious Complications

Plaque is continuously building up on your teeth. By staying on top of it every day, you prevent it from building up and eating away at your tooth’s enamel. Professional dental cleanings help to remove the plaque and tartar you can’t reach at home. By preventing tooth decay and gum disease, you increase the odds that you’ll keep your teeth for life. To find out more about taking care of your oral hygiene in Atlanta, please call us today.

How to Help Your Kids Have Healthy Teeth

Your child is old enough to see the dentist at just 1 year of age. The dentist will perform an oral health assessment and provide healthy teeth tips for you and your child. You should start cleaning your child’s teeth as soon as the first tooth appears. The importance of dental hygiene for small children is sometimes underestimated by parents because the baby teeth will eventually fall out and be replaced with permanent teeth. However, when a child gets a cavity, it will reach the tooth’s nerve quickly. Toothaches can interfere with sleeping, chewing and even speaking properly. It certainly pays to take care of your child’s oral hygiene.

Following a Proper Dental Hygiene Routine

For a sparkling smile, fresh breath and healthy gums, it’s important to brush and floss the right way. Choose a soft-bristled brush and don’t scrub too hard when you use it. Use toothpaste that contains fluoride, and make sure that you brush every tooth and each surface of that tooth: front, back and top. Replace your toothbrush every three months.

Flossing removes plaque where your toothbrush can’t reach. Gently slide the floss between the teeth and up into the gum line. Your dentist will remove plaque and tartar in places that you can’t reach with a toothbrush and floss. To start seeing results fast, call our dental office to schedule your next appointment with our qualified dentists.
