Dental Hygiene Tips

toothpastePractice these basics of good oral hygiene daily to keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright.

  • Rinse your mouth out with water immediately after eating or drinking anything
  • Brush your teeth after every meal
  • Use a toothpaste recommended by your dentist that addresses particular concerns about your teeth and mouth (prevent tartar buildup, whiten, decrease sensitivity, freshen breath)
  • Floss each side of each tooth at least once a day, more often if food particles get trapped in dental work or braces
  • Complete your dental hygiene ritual with a mouthwash or mouth rinse, choosing from antibacterial and fluoride options based on your particular needs

In addition

  • Have a cleaning and dental checkup every six months
  • Eat foods that are good for your body and your teeth
  • Avoid hard, sticky, and sugary foods especially when you know you will not be brushing your teeth for a while
