The basics of proper oral care

Taking care of your mouth is a crucial part of maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile. Working with your dental team helps you enjoy a healthy mouth. Your role is to follow good oral practices at home, including:
  • Brushing your teeth at least twice per day
  • Flossing once daily
  • Rinsing with mouthwash or an oral irrigator
  • Replacing your toothbrush every four to six months
  • Visiting your dentist for cleanings every six months or as recommended

The purpose of dental cleanings

Professional cleanings deep clean your teeth, getting deep into those hard to reach places and to assess any issues that may have come up. During the appointment, you can expect to have your teeth cleaned and polished to remove built up plaque and tartar. A fluoride treatment may be applied to strengthen the teeth.

Your dentist then assesses your teeth to check for signs of decay and periodontal disease. X-rays may be performed to check the overall structures of your mouth. By visiting the dentist regularly, if problems do appear, they are usually caught early, which increases the likelihood of successful treatment. The goal is to maintain the health and integrity of your teeth and gums. Routine exams are a crucial part of achieving that goal.
