Taking Care of Your Teeth at Home
Brushing your teeth at least twice every day is essential to removing food particles and plaque that stick on your teeth’s surfaces and get stuck between them. We recommend that you spend two minutes or longer brushing your teeth, even though many people rush through brushing. It’s important that you reach every side of the inside and outside of each tooth. Brushing your tongue will also help to keep your breath fresh. You should also floss your teeth at least once every day to remove plaque from in-between your teeth. Flossing also takes care of removing any plaque you missed or couldn’t reach while brushing your teeth. Failing to floss your teeth regularly can lead to more dental issues like cavities, tartar, and possibly gum disease.
Visiting Our Dental Hygienist Regularly
Visiting our hygiene team for regular teeth cleanings is another essential component of preventative dentistry. At Village Green Dental Care, our hygienists perform thorough and gentle teeth cleanings to ensure they stay healthy, along with your gums. We recommend most patients visit us at least twice a year for cleaning. However, we conduct a plan specific to your dental needs during your comprehensive oral exams. Over time, tartar and plaque will harden or “calcify,” which makes it impossible to clean off using your toothbrush. While you don’t feel it, the plaque inflames your gums and develops into cavities and gum disease. Our team of expert hygienists uses gentle methods to effectively remove the plaque periodically, which ensures your breath, teeth, and gums stay healthy.
