Oral Hygiene in Ocoee, FL

It doesn’t take much to maintain a healthy, attractive smile for life. All it requires is good oral hygiene through daily dental care and regular visits to a dentist for professional checkups, cleanings, and treatment. You can receive the highest-quality professional dental care and protection from the dentists at our practice.

How Is Your Smile Affected By Your Oral Hygiene?

You need to have good oral hygiene habits in order to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath from wreaking havoc on your smile. A lack of healthy oral care allows plaque and tartar to attack your teeth and gums. If the plaque and tartar aren’t removed through regular oral care habits, they can develop into dental disease and decay. The only way to protect your dental health is by taking care of your teeth daily and making regular visits to a dentist for professional oral hygiene in Ocoee. Please call our office to see how proper oral care can ultimately save your smile.

How Can You Have Healthy Dental Hygiene?

Since many people aren’t aware of what’s involved in a proper hygiene regimen, our highly-skilled dentists have provided these oral hygiene tips to maintain your dental health:

  1. Brush your teeth thoroughly following meals, first thing in the morning, and before going to sleep at night
  2. At least once every day, floss your teeth well
  3. Make your tooth enamel stronger by using a fluoride toothpaste
  4. Avoid tooth enamel damage by brushing with a toothbrush with soft or medium bristles
  5. Limit the amount of sugary foods and beverages you consume
  6. Don’t smoke
  7. Stay away from all tobacco products

Go to a dentist for teeth cleanings and dental exams regularly

What Should You Do to Ensure Your Smile Stays Healthy?

You can certainly improve and maintain your dental health through daily dental care. But it’s simply not enough, which is why you can’t overlook the importance of dental hygiene from a dentist on a regular basis for complete dental protection. Twice yearly professional cleanings and checkups give you the maximum dental defense to keep your smile free from decay and disease. And a healthy smile leads to a healthy body by guarding you against infection and widespread inflammation. Please call our office to set up a dentist appointment today.

What Is a Healthy Dental Hygiene Routine for Your Child to Practice?

According to dentistry experts, your child’s hygiene routine should begin by age one with a visit to a dentist for a complete dental exam. It should continue throughout their development with visits to the dentist for cleanings and checkups every six months. If your child is resistant to practicing oral hygiene at home or afraid to visit the dentist, read below for some dental hygiene strategies to increase your child’s dental interest. You can ease their dental anxiety by bringing activity books to appointments or improve their dental care attitude by allowing them to choose a toothbrush in their favorite color. Please call our office for more ideas for healthy children’s hygiene.

Should You Follow Certain Oral Hygiene Instructions for Dental Care?

Yes, there are a few healthy hygiene basics to include in your daily routine to protect your dental health. The first is brushing your teeth gently, yet completely, in the morning, before bed, and following meals and snacks. Secondly, make sure to floss at least once a day, but preferably more to remove decay-causing debris caught between your teeth. In addition, brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid harming your tooth enamel. And, look for toothpaste with added fluoride for the enamel strength it offers. For additional help with oral hygiene at home, call our office and our dental team will be happy to assist you.
