Are you doing everything you can to ensure your teeth are getting the proper cleaning and care they need between your dental check-ups and cleanings? At Soft Touch Dental we understand that people are busy and the current economy has people pinching pennies where they can, so regular dental check-ups can suffer. This is why it’s more important than ever to stay on top of your at-home dental hygiene care. Neglecting your teeth and gums will only lead to decay and damage which will ultimately not only cost more down the road but could negatively effect your overall health as well.
Here are some things that you can be doing daily, at home, using products you can get at nearly any drug store: The first one, obviously, is brushing your teeth. While many dentist recommend electronic brushes, manual ones can be just as effective if used correctly. Flossing and Interdental Cleaners help keep the area between your teeth clean. Mouth wash is another helpful tool. Don’t forget to wash that tongue! Fungi and other bacteria build up and collect on the tongue, so make sure you take care of it too! Doing these simply things on a day to day basis will help keep your dental health in good care while between Dental visits.
