Oral Hygiene in Blue Bell, PA

Having good dental hygiene is the only way to obtain and maintain healthy teeth and gums. However, it requires more than just good at-home oral care. Visiting a dental office for regular cleanings is also part of this objective. Our dentists are dedicated to being a part of your great oral hygiene in Blue Bell and to help you achieve a healthy smile.

What Is Dental Health?

Cavities and gingivitis are dental concerns that result from the buildup of tartar and plaque in the mouth. Proper dental hygiene techniques remove these substances and debris and prevent decaying teeth and gum disease. They also involve daily brushing and flossing and biannual professional cleanings. Contact our dental office to find out about more about the importance of dental hygiene.

What Are Some Oral Health Tips?

Keeping your smile clean and healthy begins with your oral care habits at home. If you don’t know where to start, these are several oral hygiene tips that you can use:

  • Don’t consume a lot of sweet or sugary snacks and beverages
  • Brush with toothpaste formulated with fluoride to strengthen your tooth enamel
  • Use a toothbrush that has soft- to medium- bristles for brushing after each meal
  • Avoid tobacco products
  • Use floss every day to clean between teeth, thoroughly
  • Schedule biannual teeth cleanings with a professional dentist

You can reduce your risk of developing bad breath, decayed teeth and other oral conditions when you establish healthy oral care habits with these tips.

How Do I Keep Up with a Teeth Hygiene Routine?

Although practicing proper dental hygiene is important at home, it doesn’t replace regularly going to a professional. Visiting the dentist for cleanings is the best course of action to fight decaying teeth, which can cause a lot of damage. Having great oral hygiene on both levels benefits your whole body because it prevents infections and inflammation. Make an appointment with us today so that we can help you obtain the sparkling smile that you deserve.

How Can I Help My Children Learn to Maintain Healthy Teeth?

Setting specific oral hygiene instructions for your kids can establish the foundation for their oral health. It’s important that you start from the time that they turn one, and keep up with regular office visits throughout their childhood. Doing so can prevent dental conditions such as tooth decay and catch early signs of problems so that they don’t develop into bigger problems later. Some children fear dental visits or find oral care boring. However, we have some tips that could make it less scary and more fun, such as using colorful toothbrushes and toothpastes at home. Learn more about dental care for children when you contact our office.

What Steps Make a Good Dental Hygiene Routine?

Along with professional cleanings, proper at-home oral hygiene practices can prevent the development of oral health issues. You should start your dental care routine with brushing your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste. Be sure to brush before bed. Also, floss at least once daily. Before brushing, choose a toothbrush with soft or medium bristles and a head that’s small enough to reach every part of your mouth. Contact us if you aren’t sure how to start your daily routine.
