Our dentist recommends that you follow these basic steps to help your smile stay in optimal health:
Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that includes fluoride.
Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
Maintain your regular visits to the dentist every six months. During these visits, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments.
Many dental problems develop as a result of insufficient or poor dental hygiene, including tooth decay, tooth loss, and periodontal disease. At Haledon dental care, we believe in preventive care leading to a good oral health. When you visit our dentist and team, we will review your dental hygiene habits with you and offer needed information on any additional steps you can take to further improve your oral health. To learn more about dental hygiene and to schedule your next appointment at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us today.
