Oral Hygiene in Atlanta, GA

What’s the secret to having a healthy smile? Practicing proper oral hygiene habits through daily at-home dental care and regular visits to a dentist for professional exams and cleanings. You can depend on our highly-skilled dentists to help you develop healthy habits at home and provide the professional dental treatment you need.

What Do You Need to Know About Oral Hygiene?

First and foremost, good tooth hygiene is your best defense against tooth decay and gum disease. It cleanses away the bacteria and food that get trapped in your teeth and gums, which can progress into plaque and tartar if not regularly removed. Over time, this plaque and tartar can lead to cavities and serious gum disease. Practicing healthy hygiene through regular dentist visits and daily brushing and flossing can protect you from all of these problems and keep your smile at its best. Please call us to learn more about the importance of proper hygiene.

What Are Some Good Oral Hygiene Instructions To Follow?

If you aren’t sure what’s required for healthy, effective dental hygiene, you’re not alone. Many people are also uncertain about the best way to care for their teeth and gums. In case you don’t know where to begin, we’ve compiled these useful oral hygiene tips to make healthy hygiene easy:

  • Brush your teeth several times a day: when you wake up, after eating, and before you go to bed
  • Always brush with a toothbrush that has soft or medium bristles
  • Purchase toothpaste that has fluoride for additional tooth enamel protection
  • Floss your teeth thoroughly at least two times a day
  • Cut down on sugary foods and sweetened drinks
  • Quit using all tobacco products
  • Make regular trips to a dentist for professional dental cleanings and checkups

Add these healthy tips into your regular routine to protect yourself from gum disease, tooth decay, and the embarrassment of bad breath.

How Can You Protect The Health Of Your Teeth And Gums?

Luckily, maintaining a healthy smile is as easy as practicing proper dental hygiene habits at home and seeing a dentist skilled in oral hygiene in Atlanta. In addition to the many dental benefits of proper hygiene, good oral hygiene can also protect you from many general medical problems. To keep both your smile and body healthy, call our office to schedule an appointment right away.

What Can You Do to Establish Good Dental Habits with Your Child?

According to dental experts, you should start teaching your child the importance of dental hygiene when they are very young and reinforce this as they grow up. Begin by taking your child to a dentist by the age of one to detect early signs of dental problems. Then, continue these visits regularly over the years and encourage children to practice healthy hygiene habits at home. In case your child gets nervous about the dentist or doesn’t want to take care of their teeth, our office can share some fun ideas to help your child develop healthy dental habits and make dental visits much comfortable. Try having your child color while they brush, choose their own toothbrush, or give them a healthy treat after a pleasant dental appointment. For more helpful hints and advice on developing healthy dental habits with your child, call our office today.

Is a Good At-Home Dental Hygiene Routine Difficult to Maintain?

Healthy oral hygiene is surprisingly simple to incorporate into your daily life. All it takes is brushing your teeth in the morning, at night, and after every meal, along with using a fluoride toothpaste, selecting a toothbrush with soft bristles, and flossing at least two times a day. For more information on maintaining healthy hygiene or to make a dental appointment, call our dental practice today.
