Oral Hygiene in Frederick, MD

Your oral hygiene can make the difference between having a healthy smile or struggling with dental problems. Good oral care involves daily home dental care and regular visits to a dentist for regular cleanings and dental exams. For a dentist with vast experience in oral hygiene in Frederick, trust our dental practice for the professional care and protection your smile truly needs.

Why Must You Pay Attention to Oral Hygiene?

Proper dental care is required to keep dental disease and decay from forming. Maintaining proper hygiene lets you remove the plaque and bacteria that develop on your teeth and gums every day. If these particles aren’t removed regularly, they quickly build up and result in gum disease, tooth decay, and persistent bad breath. The only way to protect your smile is with good dental habits at home and visits to a dentist for regular professional care. Please call our office to learn more about proper hygiene.

Are There Oral Hygiene Tips to Help Take Care of Teeth and Gums?

Yes, and they are surprisingly easy to follow. Dentists recommend these helpful hygiene practices to maintain good dental health:

  • Brush your teeth when you get out of bed in the morning, after you have snacks and meals, and before you go to sleep at night
  • Floss carefully between each and every tooth, at least once daily
  • Opt for a toothpaste with fluoride
  • Use a toothbrush that comfortably fits in your mouth and has soft- to medium- bristles
  • Lower your intake of foods and drinks high in sugar
  • Stop using tobacco products and smoking
  • Visit a dentist for regular checkups and teeth cleanings

These hygiene tips can help you maintain a healthy smile for life.

What’s the Best Way to Protect the Health of Your Teeth and Gums?

Practicing dental care at home can help you preserve your dental health, but you can’t overlook the importance of regular visits to a dentist for professional cleanings and exams. In addition to maintaining the health of our smile, dental hygiene can protect your entire body from infection and disease. Call our office to schedule a convenient appointment today.

How Can You Convey the Importance of Dental Hygiene to Your Child?

It’s best to teach by example and start taking care of your child’s teeth and gums when they are very young. Dental experts say you should schedule your child’s first dental appointment before their first birthday. This will allow a dentist to evaluate their dental development and detect early signs of problems. Afterward, keep taking your child to the dentist on a regular basis for professional teeth cleanings and exams. If your child puts up a fight about going to the dentist or taking care of their teeth at home, we have found some simple way to help make them more open to dental care. A few proven techniques are letting your child pick their favorite flavor toothpaste and offering healthy treats for successful dental visits. We have many more ideas to make healthy hygiene a pleasure, so feel free to call us for more advice.

How Can You Practice Good Oral Hygiene at Home?

Just as vital as regular dental appointments for professional cleanings and checkups, is developing a good dental hygiene routine at home. Our dentists have provided some simple oral hygiene instructions to help you protect your smile at home. These include brushing your teeth morning, night, and after every meal with a fluoridated toothpaste. In addition, you need to choose a soft-bristled toothbrush and replace it every few months when the bristles get out of shape. And finally, you need to floss at least once a day, but more often if possible to remove the plaque and particles trapped between teeth. Call our office and let us help you develop a healthy home hygiene routine.
