What’s Dental Hygiene?

Proper hygiene of the teeth and gums is the best line of defense against tooth decay and gum disease. Good oral hygiene involves receiving regular cleanings from a dentist in addition to brushing and flossing at home. Even if it has been some time since your last dental checkup, our dentists may be able to reverse oral hygiene problems with proper treatment. Don’t sacrifice the health of your teeth and gums – call us today to book a dental cleaning.

Oral Hygiene Tips

With just a few minutes every day, you can combat tooth decay and gum disease and achieve a healthier smile. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  • Clean teeth at least twice daily using a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush
  • Use dental floss to remove debris from between the teeth
  • Select dental products that contain fluoride, which helps strengthen tooth enamel
  • Don’t overeat candies or other sugary treats
  • If you smoke, try to stop
  • Visit our office for regular dental cleanings

A healthier smile is just a phone call away. Call our office today to set up a dental cleaning appointment.

How Can I Have Healthy Teeth?

The best way to achieve a dazzling, decay-free smile is to see a dentist regularly for oral exams and cleanings. Only a dentist can ensure oral health problems are treated before they worsen. Maintaining a healthy smile offers a host of benefits, including fresh breath, fewer cavities, and a reduced risk of chronic inflammation caused by gum disease. Clean teeth also tend to look more attractive, which can help increase your confidence. If you’re ready to improve your oral hygiene and health, call us now to make an appointment.

Teaching Children About Oral Hygiene

At our office, we understand that educating children about the importance of dental hygiene presents unique challenges. Children are often reluctant to follow oral hygiene instructions, and many children are anxious or fearful when going to the dentist. Our dentists suggest using positive reinforcement to encourage your child to practice good dental hygiene. Offering your child tooth-friendly snacks, stickers, and other items helps create a positive association with dental care. These items can be given out after a successful trip to the dentist or when a child exhibits good habits at home.

What’s Considered a Good Dental Hygiene Routine?

Beginning a routine for oral hygiene in Atlanta can be accomplished with a few simple steps. First, brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice daily using a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush. Choose a toothbrush that can move freely in all areas of your mouth without strain. Dental floss should be used once per day to clear debris from spaces between the teeth. Your dentist may recommend mouthwash to address a dental issue, in that case, be sure to use the solution according to your dentist’s instructions.
