Top 5 Do’s And Don’ts Of Dental Hygiene

At Cornwall Dental Arts, we want to do everything we can to help our patients have healthy teeth and gums, and a beautiful smile. With that in mind, here are some tips for good oral hygiene.

1. Do… remember you are just cleaning the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the correct angle can gently clean the bacteria away. Once plaque has settled into tartar, no measure of scrubbing at home can safely remove it.

Don’t… scour your teeth and gums until your gums pull back and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want vulnerable.

2. Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Proper brushing and daily flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.

Don’t… hesitate to see your dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth pain or mouth sores.

3. Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves adequate time to spend a full two minutes delicately cleaning all the nooks and crannies of your mouth.

Don’t… forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can disrupt a vital routine.

4. Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional.

Don’t… worry if you don’t have the healthiest of mouths.

At Cornwall Dental Arts, we provide general and family dentistry that will help you maintain your beautiful smile, and keep your teeth and gums in great condition. We offer mouth guards for those who grind their teeth at night, and also provide cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.
