Oral Hygiene Maintenance In Gulfport, Mississippi

Maintaining Oral Health

Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things a patient can do for their teeth and gums. It’s ultimately up to the patient in between visits, but the dentist is here to help and offer tips. Healthy teeth enable patients to have a smile that is attractive and functional. Gulf Coast Dental emphasizes good oral health is vitally important to overall well-being.

Good Oral Hygiene

Daily preventive care in between regular dental visits can decrease the risk of developing dental problems. It can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. Consider incorporating these habits into your daily teeth regime:

Cleaning Your Teeth And Gums

  • Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day.
  • Floss your teeth daily.
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit snacks between meals.
  • Use dental products that contain fluoride, including fluoride toothpaste.
  • Rinse with a fluoride mouth rinse if your dentist advises it.
  • Make sure that your children under 12 drink fluoridated water or take a fluoride supplement if they live in a non-fluoridated area.

Oral Hygiene Dental Cleanings

While the majority of patients who receive a dental cleaning as a part of their oral hygiene routine don’t report oral discomfort, there are a few that do. If you happen to be one of the few, it’s important to reanalyze your oral hygiene practices.

Setting up an appointment to regularly clean your teeth is important. It lets you know if you are doing a good job cleaning with oral hygiene maintenance and can help you avoid costly dental procedures later down the road. As an added bonus, you will give your teeth the best chance at staying healthy for the rest of your life!
