General Teeth Cleaning
Protecting your teeth is the first step to getting a long lasting, beautiful smile of your dreams. Why is preventative care needed? Well, without it, your teeth can become yellowed, fractured, or decayed. Here are a few ways that Dr. Thomas and his team at Jay Thomas protect your smile with preventative care.
What Can I Do to Improve My Smile At Home?
Like other things in dentistry, preventive care in a mixture of your effort and your dentist’s. First, for better oral health, you should make a good oral hygiene routine. After you wake-up and before you go to bed, brush your teeth for two minutes. If you use an electric toothbrush, many brands have a built-in time. If you use a manual brush you can set a timer on your phone or listen to your favorite song. What is the next step? Flossing, of course! Remember to floss at least once a day. This rids the hard to get bacteria and acids from between and around your teeth.
Apart from brushing and flossing every day, eating and drinking is also an important part of preventative care. If you eat or drink something sugary, drink water with it. The water can wash away some of the bacteria that sit on your teeth. However, it is always best to brush your teeth if you have a sugar film around or on them. Additionally, smoking also contributes to poor oral health. This can cause a problems ranging from gum disease, tooth loss, and even oral cancer.
