Maintaining Your Oral Health at Home

Proper oral hygiene and dental care at home will keep your smile beautiful in between your regular dental visits, as well as ensure that the work we do remains strong and healthy. We recommend brushing and flossing twice daily.

Here are some other things you can do to take care of your smile:

  • Brush thoroughly twice a day and floss daily
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit snacks between meals
  • Use dental products which contain fluoride, including toothpaste
  • Rinse with a fluoride mouth rinse if advised to do so
  • Make sure children under 12 drink fluoridated water
  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and oral exams
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months

At Compassion Dentistry, we focus on building a healthy smile from the foundation up. You can do the same by creating a healthy foundation in your own dental care.

When you maintain good oral care, you will notice the following benefits, or signs of good care

  • Your teeth are clean and free of debris
  • Gums are pink and do not hurt or bleed when you brush or floss
  • Bad Breath is not a constant problem

Let’s get you scheduled!
