You should never be afraid of looking for new ways to improve your oral health. Even if you think you’re doing everything you can, there may still may be aspects of your life that you could enhance that will not only improve the look of your teeth but perhaps add an additional layer of protection that can lower your risk of sustaining an oral ailment or accident. Even changing up the dental products you are using or slightly adjusting the techniques you implement in oral health care routines can make a world of difference. To help you get an idea of how you can improve your oral health care, we have compiled a list of commonly asked questions:

What is oral health care, and why is it important?
Oral health care is the process by which you continue to keep your teeth and gums safe for a lifetime of happiness. It is important to take care of your oral health so that your teeth can continue to function as needed.

What can you do to help keep your smile safe?
Three pillars that help form the foundation of your oral health care include cleaning your mouth, improving your diet and enhancing your lifestyle. A combination of better oral care habits can help ensure that your teeth and gums remain safe.

Are you familiar with some of the benefits of visiting our dentist?
Visiting our dentist can help you learn about your dental history so that you know which issues you should be aware of. Our dentist can also assess any damage that may have occurred to your smile. We can also provide professional cleanings to help reach the areas in your mouth that you may have missed. If any damage has occurred, we can provide restorative treatments.

What are my options for enhancing my cleaning habits?
Always make sure you are brushing and flossing on a daily basis. You can also use supplemental cleaning tools, including rinsing with mouthwash and chewing sugarless gum after meals.
