What’s the Importance of a Proper Oral Hygiene Routine?

When it comes to maintaining your dental health, there’s no substitute for daily brushing and flossing at home, but it’s just as vital to see a dentist at least twice a year for professional checkups and cleanings. You need a dentist that specializes in oral hygiene in Flint to keep your smile protected from damaging decay and disease. An additional benefit of hygiene is a stronger resistance to many medical problems and dangerous infections.

Teach Your Child About the Importance of Dental Hygiene?

Believe it or not, you need to begin establishing oral care practices with your child before they even have a full set of teeth. Dental experts advise taking your child for their first dentist visit by the time they reach their first birthday. Then, continue these dentist appointments on a regular basis as your child grows up to protect them from dental problems and get them the treatment they need. If your child won’t follow oral hygiene instructions at home or is afraid of seeing the dentist, we can help you improve your child’s attitude toward dental care with a few proven tips and tricks. Try getting the whole family involved in daily brushing and flossing, as well as promising your child his or her favorite healthy treat for good behavior at the dentist. For additional ideas on encouraging your child to take care of their teeth, call us anytime and our staff will be happy to help.

What Kind of Dental Hygiene Routine Should You Practice at Home?

Professional dental treatment provides the advanced care you need a couple of times a year. But you also need to maintain your dental health between dentist visits by practicing hygiene at home. Your daily at-home dental hygiene routine should include brushing in the morning, evening, and after meals, along with flossing at least once a day. You should also use a toothpaste containing fluoride to strengthen tooth enamel and a toothbrush with softer bristles to avoid damaging your teeth and gums. We encourage you to call us if you have any additional questions about oral hygiene at home.
