Oral Hygiene in Citrus Park, FL

Excellent oral hygiene in Citrus Park sets the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. In addition to caring for your teeth at home, visiting a dentist for professional dental cleanings protects your smile against gum disease and tooth decay. At our practice, we’re dedicated to helping patients establish healthy dental habits that last a lifetime.

What Is the Goal of Oral Hygiene?

The goal of oral hygiene is to maintain cleanliness of the teeth and gums. This is achieved through professional cleanings by a dentist or dental hygienist, which remove harmful debris from the teeth and gums. Home care is also an important aspect of good hygiene – daily brushing and flossing between dental visits can keep tooth decay at bay. If you’re ready to establish a great tooth hygiene routine, call us now to get started.

Oral Hygiene Basics

Creating a great oral care routine at home is possible with a few simple steps. Follow these expert oral hygiene tips from our dentists to achieve your best smile:

  • Select dental products that contain fluoride, which can strengthen the tooth enamel
  • Brush the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces of your teeth after each meal, or twice daily
  • Floss your teeth every day, thoroughly cleaning between each pair of teeth
  • Avoid overconsumption of sugary foods and drinks
  • Quit smoking, if possible – or don’t start
  • See a dentist regularly for cleanings

If you have further questions about starting a home hygiene routine, give us a call during regular office hours. We’re always here to help!

How Do You Keep Teeth Healthy?

While proper home care is essential, the best way to achieve good dental health is to visit a dentist regularly for examinations and cleanings. When dental problems are diagnosed and treated early, they’re usually less time-consuming and costly to fix. Your dentist can also provide information on the best ways to care for your teeth at home. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

How Can I Teach Good Dental Hygiene to My Child?

Educating young children about the importance of dental hygiene can help them establish habits that last a lifetime. A child’s first dental visit should take place around age one, and it typically involves examining the baby teeth for signs of decay or disease. At our practice, we understand that many children are resistant when offered oral hygiene instructions, or perhaps they experience anxiety when visiting the dentist. Coloring books, tooth-friendly snacks, and other positive reinforcement tools can help make your child’s dental visit pleasant.

What Is an Excellent Dental Hygiene Routine?

Neglecting your oral hygiene in Citrus Park can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, or oral infection. To achieve a luminous smile, brush your teeth twice daily using a soft- or medium-bristle toothbrush that can easily reach all corners of your mouth. Brushing should be done at a 45-degree angle to the gums, with the brush moving gently across each tooth. Oscillating toothbrushes are a great option, as they can help you thoroughly scrub each tooth’s surface. At least once per day, clean between each pair of teeth with floss. Give us a call to learn more about how you can achieve a clean and sparkling smile.
