Maintaining good oral health through preventative dental care is crucial for ensuring long-term dental well-being. Maintaining oral hygiene involves both proper oral care practices and a balanced diet.
Regular tooth brushing is vital for maintaining good oral hygiene. It is recommended to brush your teeth at least twice a day, or after each meal and before bed. Flossing daily is an important part of maintaining good oral hygiene, in addition to regular brushing. Bacteria commonly reside in the spaces between teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult for a toothbrush to access.
Maintaining proper teeth and mouth health can also be achieved by following a well-balanced diet and minimizing sugar intake. These practices can also contribute to the prevention of other issues like snoring and sleep apnea.
Finally, be sure to schedule regular cleanings at Sindledecker Dentistry. If you aren’t on a recurring schedule, call today to schedule either an annual or semi-annual cleaning.
