Oral Hygiene in Sarasota, FL

At times, it can seem like life can get in the way of giving your teeth the care and attention they need. At our dental office, we know that everyone would like to have healthy teeth and gums. However, not everyone is sure of how to get them. The good news is that there are some simple things you can do that are proven to deliver a healthier smile.

What Is Dental Hygiene?

The role of dental hygiene is to keep the teeth and gums clean from plaque and food particles. If plaque and tartar are left to accumulate on the teeth, they can lead to tooth decay and gingivitis. When you practice proper dental hygiene by brushing and flossing each day, combined with routine professional dental visits, you can ward off cavities and gum disease. Please call our dental office today to schedule an appointment.

Tips for Great Oral Hygiene

Bright teeth and fresh breath start at home. To get started with healthy teeth, try these oral hygiene tips.

  • Brush at least twice a day, ideally, after every meal
  • Floss between the teeth once a day
  • Stay away from sugary foods and drinks
  • Use a fluoridated toothpaste
  • Don’t chew or smoke tobacco

When you follow these tips for dental care and oral hygiene, you’ll lower your chances of experiencing tooth decay, halitosis and other oral-health issues.

How Do I Keep My Teeth Healthy?

The foundation of keeping teeth healthy is visiting a dentist and following their oral hygiene instructions at home. Additionally, for optimal oral hygiene and health, limit your consumption of sugary foods and beverages. Acidic beverages can also be damaging to your tooth’s enamel, so be careful about drinking too much citrus juice and soda. Make sure to keep your teeth protected from harm if you play sports by wearing a mouth guard.

Healthy Dental Practices for Kids

Some parents unintentionally overlook the importance of dental hygiene for kids. While it’s true that baby teeth will fall out, it’s still very important to spend time caring for them. Baby teeth are present in the mouth long enough to develop cavities, and they have thinner enamel than adult teeth, so any decay can quickly reach the tooth’s nerve and cause a painful toothache. Toothache pain can get in the way of proper sleep, nutrition and language development. It’s essential to help your child to follow a proper dental hygiene routine.

A Proper Oral Hygiene Routine That’s Easy to Follow

Plaque never takes a break from accumulating on your teeth. If you keep on top of removing it each and every day, you can stop it from damaging your tooth’s enamel. Visits to the dentist for professional cleanings remove the plaque buildup that’s difficult or impossible to reach at home. Preventing tooth decay and gum problems is vital if you want to hold on to your natural teeth for life. To make an appointment or learn more about good oral hygiene in Sarasota, give us a call.
