Redmond, WA dentist describes the importance of good oral hygiene habits
Redmond, WA area patients who are interested in achieving healthy, beautiful smiles are strongly encouraged to take a proactive approach to their oral health and wellness. Taking care of the smile does not just mean visits to the dentist every six months for a cleaning and examination. It means being vigilant about ensuring daily oral hygiene habits to help achieve and maintain a smile that is free from periodontal disease and tooth decay.
What are some ways to ensure proper oral hygiene?
Dr. Tina Subherwal of Smile Studios in Redmond, WA encourages patients to ask her about the ways they can keep their smile healthy for a lifetime. Below are a few of the more commonly recommended hygiene habits patients can do:
- Brushing after every meal. When patients brush their teeth after meals and snacks, they can remove food particles that can contribute to the formation of plaque and the development of tooth decay and periodontal disease.
- Flossing after every meal. Flossing is also important, as it removes food that may become stuck between teeth. Flossing should be done after every meal, or at least once a day.
- Routine dental visits. The American Dental Association recommends a visit to the dentist every six months for a cleaning and examination.
- Acting when problems develop. If you are experiencing problems with your smile, do not wait until your next checkup. Call Smile Studios to book an appointment for an evaluation to receive a proper diagnosis and discuss treatment to keep the smile healthy.
