Good Dental Home Care

Maintaining Good Dental Care Habits

Regular visits with your dentist are an important part of maintaining dental health.  So is having a good dental home care routine. An article from Everyday Health titled “Maintaining Good Dental Care Habits” touches on some of the reasons why it’s important to regularly brush and floss your teeth. We also like to see patients use Perio-Aides, which help remove plaque along the gum line. If you have questions as to whether your dental home care is adequate, please ask us at your next appointment.


Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body

Oral Hygiene and Overall Health

As we’ve discussed with patients during visits, oral health is important for good overall health.  An article from Everyday Health titled “Oral Hygiene and Overall Health” talks about this link.  The article discusses things that can negatively impact the health of your mouth, such as having a diet high in sugars, smoking, drinking, and taking certain medications.  Taking good care of your mouth at home with regular brushing and flossing, coupled with regular checkups with your dentist, can help maintain a healthy mouth.  And, a healthy mouth helps maintain a healthy body.
