Routine dental examination visits are usually an essential and critical step in maintaining good oral health. There are more to dental visits than identifying potential problems or underlying illness. Seeing your dentists regularly help keep your teeth healthier since teeth tend to be worn out over time and require cleanings and proper treatments. Gums help hold your teeth in place, and they are susceptible to cuts, scrapes, and cancer, so you must visit the dentist to keep them strong and healthy. Your oral hygiene consists of healthy teeth and gums.

Regular visits are the key, but it is not entirely enough to keep your teeth and gum health, so it is recommended to have a good home care routine.

  • When purchasing a toothbrush, it is recommended to buy a soft-bristled brush
  • Gently brush your teeth twice per day
  • Use fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss your teeth twice per day using proper techniques
  • Consider using mouthwash to remove debris and freshen your breath
  • At home checks to assess the health of your mouth is important
  • Signs of inflammation or irritation needs to be monitored for signs of potential problems
  • If you are using tobacco products or smoking, it is highly suggested for you to stop immediately
  • Select your daily food intake since sugary or sticky foods can damage your teeth by helping bacteria grow to weaken your tooth enamel
