What Should Your Oral Hygiene Routine Include?
There are always questions about how to set up an oral hygiene routine when we have patients come in. Some want to know about how often to brush or floss, while others want to know about things like mouthwash. Here is a simple breakdown of what you need to make sure you are taking the best care of your oral health as possible.

Daily Oral Hygiene Routine

Each day, you need to make sure you brush. This should be done once in the morning and one more time at night. You should make sure you brush for a full two minutes each time, timing it out if necessary. One of the times that you brush, you also need to floss. You want to drag the floss along the insides of your teeth, not saw it back and forth, to get the most debris out from between your teeth. You should then rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash to ensure the areas between your teeth get thoroughly clean.

Routine Outside of the Daily Grind

You also need to make sure you come in every six months for a cleaning. This is very important when it comes to caring for your teeth. We clean differently and more thoroughly than your toothbrush can. If we find any issues, you want to also have them treated as early as possible. Otherwise, it can lead to bigger problems that can ruin your oral health.

If you want more ideas on how to care for your mouth, call us. We are here, ready and waiting to help with anything you may need. Taking care of your oral health is something that helps take care of the rest of your body, too, so make sure you never let your oral health slide!

Tips for Helping Crowns Last
Dental crowns can last a very long time if they are properly cared for. However, you must make sure you are gentle with them. If you are not careful or caring for your crowns properly, expect them to last less than five years. By taking care of them properly, you can extend that up to nearly 20! Make sure you brush your teeth and floss like clockwork every single day. You also need to use your crowns gently - no ripping items open with your teeth! Plus, make sure you come in and let us check your mouth every six months. The better you care for your oral health, the longer your dental crowns are likely to last.

Signs Your Toothbrush Has Seen Better Days
Do you know when it is time to replace your toothbrush? They say it is every three months, but that is not always a perfect way of knowing. For the most accurate determination, you need to look at your toothbrush. If you notice that the bristles are splayed out, this is a good sign for replacement. The bristles will also become more translucent in most cases. You want bristles that are straight and soft in order to get the most debris off of your teeth. If this is not what you have, it is time to invest in a new toothbrush or a new head if your toothbrush is powered.
