Developing A Good Oral Care Routine
Our teeth do a lot for us, so it’s important we treat them well. Maintaining a healthy smile is a key part of entire body wellness, and while it takes some commitment, with daily dedication you can keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.
Dr. Elena Kurz of Kurz Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Dacula is here to work with you to develop and excel at your oral care routine, preventing dental issues from developing and giving you a great smile.
Brushing your teeth should be a habit for every member of the family. At least twice a day, or after eating, use a fluoride toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrush to lightly but thoroughly reach every surface of your teeth and along the gum line. If you have sensitive teeth or could use a whitening boost, ask your Dacula dentist for assistance in choosing a toothpaste formula that meets your needs.
People often complain about flossing, but in truth, the process is quick and highly effective. Make sure to floss between every tooth, top to bottom, being gentle when you reach the gum line. You can try floss in a strand or pick versions, whatever is most comfortable for you.
Rinsing your mouth with water after eating and drinking is a good way to keep any residue from lingering on your teeth. If you are looking to freshen your breath between brushings, consider an oral rinse. Your dentist at our Dacula office can recommend a brand that will effectively enhance your routine.
Visit our Dacula office regularly for professional cleanings and examinations to ensure your teeth are in good order. Using special equipment and tools, your dentist can remove plaque and tartar that your brush can’t, getting your teeth their cleanest. An exam also gives your dentist an opportunity to look for damage, cavities, or other issues that could impact your dental health, and treat them properly.
By partnering at home and in-office dental care, you can keep your teeth healthy and attractive. Schedule an appointment with your dentist Dr. Elena Kurz of Kurz Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today by calling 770-904-6088.
