Oral Hygiene in Quail Meadows, FL

Does it sometimes seem like life gets in the way of taking good care of your teeth? We understand that everyone wants a healthy smile, but not everyone knows exactly how to get it. Our knowledgeable dentists are here to assess and treat our valued patients’ dental health concerns. We also provide oral hygiene tips to ensure optimal care for teeth between visits.

Dental Hygiene for You and Your Family

Dental hygiene is a set of habits performed regularly that help to minimize the buildup of plaque and tartar in the mouth. The goal of a good dental care routine is to prevent cavities, maintain healthy gums and promote fresh breath. By paying attention to your teeth hygiene at home and visiting a dentist for regular checkups, a healthy smile can be yours.

What Are Some Tips for Healthy Teeth?

You already know that brushing and flossing are the foundation of a good dental care and oral hygiene regimen. However, here are a few teeth care tips that can make these basic habits more effective:

  • Thoroughly floss between teeth
  • Avoid sugary foods, including sodas and sweet beverages
  • Choose a toothpaste that contains fluoride
  • Don’t use tobacco or smoke
  • See a dentist regularly

Dental Hygiene Routine: Why Is It Important?

Avoiding toothaches, smiling beautifully and chewing properly are all good reasons to strive for excellent oral hygiene habits. However, even with the best self-care at home, visit a dentist every six months for cleanings and checkups. Plaque and tartar can build up in places, such as under the gumline, that you can’t reach with a toothbrush. Get started today with a daily dental care routine at home and call our office to make an appointment for professional attention to your oral hygiene in Quail Meadows.

Teeth Care Tips for Kids

Parents can do a lot to help their child maintain strong, pain-free teeth and gums. Your baby should have their first dentist appointment at age 1. A dentist will make an oral health assessment and provide oral hygiene instructions for your child. Teaching your child the importance of dental hygiene should start early. Preventative habits like brushing and flossing go a long way toward maintaining your child’s dental health.

What Is A Great Dental Care Routine?

It should come as no surprise that limiting your consumption of food and drinks with added sugar is key to maintaining healthy teeth. Eating smart for your oral hygiene and health also means getting enough calcium, vitamins and vegetables. Don’t smoke, and remember to replace your toothbrush once every three months. If you really want to practice excellent oral hygiene, brush after every meal and snack to put a halt on plaque formation.
