Oral Hygiene in Brandon, FL

The way to keep your smile healthy and bright is by practicing proper dental hygiene. All this entails is daily dental care at home and regular visits to a dentist for professional dental care and cleanings. If you’re looking for a dentist to help you with oral hygiene in Brandon, you can trust the experienced dentists at our dental practice to keep your smile as healthy and protected as can be.

Why Should You Care About Oral Hygiene?

The secret to having a healthy smile isn’t really a secret at all. It’s simply practicing good oral hygiene every day to rid your teeth and gums of built-up plaque and bacteria. Without daily hygiene, these dental dangers can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. But following a hygiene routine of daily brushing and flossing, with regular professional dental treatment, can keep your smile in the best of health. Call our practice to find out more about the difference that good hygiene can make.

Are There Certain Oral Hygiene Instructions You Should Follow?

Yes, there are definite dos and don’ts in protecting your dental health. By adding these dental hygiene practices into your life, you can keep your teeth and gums looking their very best:

  1. Gently brush your teeth after eating, when you wake, and before you go to sleep
  2. Use a toothpaste with added fluoride to help preserve your tooth enamel
  3. Get a toothbrush with softer bristles
  4. Carefully floss every day around every tooth
  5. Stop smoking
  6. Avoid chewing tobacco and other tobacco products
  7. Reduce the amount of sugar in your diet
  8. Make an appointment with our dentists for regular examinations and teeth cleanings

Using these eight oral hygiene tips will help you avoid bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease.

What Do You Need to Do to Maintain the Health of Your Teeth?

In addition to maintaining oral hygiene at home, you can’t overlook the need for regular visits to a dentist for professional exams and cleanings. Only a dentist has the skills and tools necessary to completely protect your dental health. And healthy oral hygiene can also help you prevent many medical conditions and infections. To take your overall health into your hands, please call our office to arrange an appointment right away.

When Should You Start Teaching Your Child About Healthy Oral Hygiene?

When it comes to the health of your child’s smile, teaching them the importance of dental hygiene is primarily up to you. Their dental foundation should begin with a dentist visit by the age of one. Regular dental visits should continue throughout their development to prevent, detect, and treat any dental problems, such as cavities or gum disease. To make healthy oral care activities and dental visits more pleasant for your child, we can provide you with creative and fun ideas. Some of the most popular are dancing around while brushing your child’s teeth and rewarding good dental appointments with a favorite healthy treat. Feel free to call us for additional ideas to help your child enjoy taking care of their smile.

What Should Be Included in Your at-Home Hygiene Regimen?

While most people know that they need to take care of their teeth and gums, many just don’t know what’s involved in a good daily dental hygiene routine. The basics of good hygiene include brushing several times a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, using a fluoridated toothpaste, and flossing at least once a day to reach the decay-causing plaque and debris hidden between your teeth. Simply adding these hygiene instructions into your daily schedule will help you protect your teeth and gums from cavities and gum disease. For more helpful hygiene hints, call our office anytime.
