Oral Hygiene & Dental Care

One easy way to improve your mouth health and preserve your teeth longer is to practice good oral hygiene.

Flossing

We recommend that you add flossing to your dental care routine. If your teeth are tightly spaced, shop around for a floss that will slip more easily between your teeth. If you find it difficult to handle floss, try a floss holder.

Toothbrushing

Soft-bristled toothbrushes can reach more surfaces but be sure to get one that is comfortable to hold and works well in your mouth. Don't struggle with one that has bent or frayed bristles that can't be directed accurately. The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three to four months.

Power Toothbrushing

Toothbrushing

For people with limited motor skills or arthritis, a powered toothbrush might be helpful.

If your toothbrush has a rubber tip, use it to massage your gums after brushing. Additional tools include tiny brushes that get in between the teeth, called interproximal toothbrushes, and small interdental picks. Be careful to avoid injuring the gums when using these devices.

Oral Irrigators

Oral irrigators can help remove particles of food around the teeth, especially if you wear braces or fixed partial dentures, but they are not a substitute for brushing and flossing.

Mouth Rinsing

Mouth rinses with fluoride can help prevent tooth decay. Using an anti-plaque or anti-gingivitis mouth rinse may be recommended if you have plaque or gum disease.

Check with us if you are not clear on the proper use of any of these products.

"Just went for a cleaning for the first time in years and years and I knew I had a chipped tooth, they did a thorough cleaning and doctor Truman sat down and talk through everything with me and set up a plan and a follow up to get my chipped tooth fixed. Very nice and clean office and everyone is very friendly. My wife and kids also have appointments coming up as well."
