Helping Patients Practice Good Oral Hygiene

We understand positive oral hygiene is a journey. It may take a while to adapt and adhere to new habits. Our team helps patients learn the best ways to practice positive oral hygiene habits, including the following:

  • Brush Twice a Day – It’s essential to spend about two minutes in the morning and at night brushing your teeth for 30 seconds on each side.
  • Floss – Floss between your teeth to help remove food trapped along the gumline and between teeth.
  • Eat a Healthy Diet – Stick to a well-balanced and healthy diet to help optimize your dental health.
  • Limit Alcohol and Tobacco – Smoking or using smokeless tobacco can cause gum disease and weaken your immune system, while drinking alcohol is a risk for oral cancer and periodontitis.
