What is dental hygiene?
Dental hygiene includes the basic ways you can care for your smile. Dental hygiene should include coming to our office for regular dental cleanings and exams, as well as taking care of your smile at home. To keep your smile healthy, we recommend that you:
- Brush your teeth at least twice daily
- Floss your teeth at least once daily
- Eat a balanced, healthy diet, avoiding excessive amounts of very sugary foods
Visit us at Gentle Dental Arts every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam
By following these simple steps, you can prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other dental problems.
