In this blog post from the Parkway Dentist in Fort Worth, we want to deliver some simple tips to help you maintain excellent dental health.
1.Do… remember you are just clearing the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the appropriate angle can gently clean it away. Once plaque has progressed into tartar, no measure of scrubbing at home can safely remove it.
Don’t… vigorously scour your teeth and gums until your gums pull back and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want exposed.
2.Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Thorough brushing and regular flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.
Don’t… wait to see your dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity or mouth sores.
3.Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves adequate time for a full two minutes 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 halt a key routine!
4.Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional. Call The Parkway Dentist to set up your initial consultation today.
Don’t… worry if you don’t have the healthiest of mouths. We can help you get back on track. Whether you’re looking for cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, or sedation dentistry, we can restore what has been lost or counsel with you on the best options.
5.Do… enjoy your mouth and all the wonders it is capable of.
Don’t… put off coming in for a cleaning and checkup every six months.
