Each day that goes by, your teeth undergo further strain and abuse through use, physical encounters, and food particles that remain in your mouth after you eat. These food and drink remnants are full of sugars that break down and begin to eat away at the enamel of your teeth. To combat this, you must maintain a daily regimen of good oral hygiene.
Good Daily Oral Hygiene
In order to keep your teeth as healthy as possible, there are 4 main steps to keep in mind. This will ensure your teeth get the best possible cleaning and support.
- Floss once daily – In order to prevent gum disease and tooth decay, you must remove the food particles left in the crevasses between teeth and along your gum line. You cannot always see them, so not doing this gives them the opportunity to attack those hard-to-reach areas in your mouth, destroying the enamel of your teeth.
- Brush twice daily – Your teeth develop coatings, layers of sugars and particles, from the foods you eat and drink. To clean the surface of your teeth and maintain a bright smile, use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush twice a day, preferably after you eat. We recommend using fluoride-infused toothpaste to help promote tooth-enamel protection. Be sure to brush along the gum line and between teeth to remove hidden food particles.
- Rinse with fluoride mouthwash – Rinsing with fluoride mouthwash will help clean your mouth and the hidden areas, but also regenerate some of the tooth enamel lost each day due to plaque bacteria and sugars in your mouth.
- Get your teeth cleaned twice a year – To overcome what even brushing and good oral care cannot completely eliminate like teeth discoloration, gingivitis, and cavities, the dentists at Fresh Pond Dental recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned once every 6 months.
