We’ve all been told about the importance of oral health from the day we were old enough to pick up a toothbrush. But when you have something you have to do every single day (seriously, every day is a lot!) it’s easy to get complacent and rush through the necessities. At my Charlottesville dental office, we want to give our patients a few reminders on how to get the best, cleanest mouth possible.
Toothbrush? Check. Toothpaste? Check. Floss? Check. Good to go, right? Well, not necessarily. Each person has unique needs and their dental tools should be selected accordingly.
Don’t get caught in the habit of mindlessly brushing and flossing your teeth. Brushing often enough, long enough, and correctly is crucial to ensuring your mouth is bacteria free. Take two minutes twice a day and gently scrub in small circles, hitting every surface of the teeth. Also make sure you’re removing particles between teeth by flossing once a day between each tooth and up under the gums.
Visits to your Charlottesville dentist every six months are a necessary part of a healthy mouth. Not only will your dental team perform a deep, professional cleaning, they’ll also check your mouth for any potential problems like cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer. Your routine visit is also a perfect time to talk with your dentist about any cosmetic dentistry you may be interested in like teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, or veneers.
No matter how great your oral health routine is at home, if you’re missing regular visits with your dentist, your mouth isn’t the healthiest it can be. Don’t avoid the dentist, schedule an appointment at my dental office in Charlottesville today.
