We love teaching our patients about oral wellness for a long-lasting, healthy smile. Our dental office and the American Dental Association (ADA), recommend the following for optimal oral wellness:
- Brushing 2-3 times per day
- Flossing 1-2 times per day
- Getting routine checkups and professional cleanings from your dentist once every 6 months
- Limiting your intake of foods and beverages that contain high sugar
And if you have kids, don’t forget to teach them healthy oral habits, too.
Regular 6-month checkup appointments are important
Regular checkup appointments allow us to keep an eye on potential problems in your mouth and to provide treatment when necessary.
Catching many types of dental problems early on can decrease the chances of more threatening issues down the road (i.e. periodontal disease).
For instance, untreated gum disease, which can lead to periodontal disease) has been linked to serious health problems, such as: birth complications, stroke, diabetes, heart problems, and other serious illnesses.
