How Can I Maintain Good Oral Hygiene?
A healthy smile doesn’t just occur by luck, it requires a patient to be proactive in caring for their teeth and gums to reduce the risk of developing problems such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and stained, broken teeth. At Chase Inspired Dentistry of the Herriman and Draper, Utah communities, Dr. Chase Larsen and his team can evaluate patients and educate them on recommendations for treatment and home care to achieve and maintain oral health. Below are just some of the ways in which patients can get their oral health in check with the help of a professional dental team:
- Routine dental examinations. Regular dental check-ups are essential to detecting potential issues before they become more serious problems. During these appointments, your dentist will thoroughly examine the mouth, including the teeth and gum tissues, for any signs of cavities, periodontitis, or other oral health issues. This allows for early detection and treatment, preventing the need for more invasive procedures in the future.
- Proper cleaning techniques. Regular cleanings and routine examinations are crucial to maintaining a healthy smile. Professional cleanings can remove both plaque and tartar that may have built up and cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. If left undiagnosed and untreated, this buildup can lead to decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. In between dental appointments, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene practices at home. This includes brushing at least twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least once each day. Daily care is necessary to get you to your next visit problem-free!
- Prevention of future dental problems. By maintaining routine dental care, you can prevent future dental problems from arising. Early detection and effective treatment of oral health issues can save you time, funds, and discomfort in the long run.
- Be proactive in eating a healthy, nutritional diet. What you eat can significantly impact your oral health. Avoiding both sugary and acidic foods and drinks can help prevent tooth decay, while consuming nutrient-rich foods can strengthen your teeth and gums.
