Oral Hygiene Is Easy And Affordable

Oral Hygiene Basics Gilroy, CA

At a dentist appointment, we can go over important oral hygiene basics with you.

Oral Hygiene Basics

Taking care of your teeth requires more than receiving a dental cleaning at least once every six months. It is crucial to keep regular oral hygiene routines at home with brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. Along with that, there are other tips and tricks to help take care of your teeth.

That's where we come in. During an examination and cleaning, we can offer the steps you can take to keep your teeth in the best shape possible. We will go over various brushing and flossing techniques to help your oral health.

For instance, soft-bristled toothbrushes can help protect the enamel of the teeth. We can also recommend the type of toothbrush that works best for your teeth. We will go over the proper brushing techniques to ensure you clean every tooth properly.

We can recommend specific brands of toothpaste that address plaque protection, the shade of the teeth, or other issues. We will go over how to floss correctly to reach any bits of plaque between the teeth. With proper oral hygiene, there is less of a chance of oral health issues forming.

Since many forms of oral health infections form from plaque that remains on the teeth, proper oral hygiene is essential to prevention. During a professional cleaning appointment, we can also check for any early signs of infection or other issues and treat them right away.

Schedule an appointment with us to receive professional oral hygiene treatment and learn how to keep your teeth healthy.
