Oral Hygiene in Kennesaw, GA

A commitment to excellent oral hygiene in Kennesaw can keep your teeth healthy throughout life. In addition to practicing good hygiene at home, seeing a dentist for regular cleanings is essential to your long-term dental health.

What Is Dental Hygiene?

Proper hygiene of the teeth and gums is essential to enjoying a healthy, pain-free smile. Good oral hygiene consists of regular professional cleanings paired with a dental care routine at home. When the teeth are cleaned regularly, plaque and other debris are eliminated before they can cause cavities or gingivitis. To learn more about the importance of dental hygiene, please give our office a call.

Oral Hygiene Tips

Many people wish to improve their dental health, but oftentimes they are unsure how to get started. Try these healthy teeth tips for a brilliant smile:

  • Using a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush, spend at least 30 seconds brushing each quadrant of your mouth twice daily
  • Use dental floss, which can remove trapped debris from between the teeth
  • Buy dental products that contain fluoride
  • Cut down on sugary foods and beverages
  • Avoid tobacco use
  • Schedule a professional cleaning at our dental office

Are you ready to improve your dental health through good oral hygiene? If so, call our office to make an appointment.

How Can I Keep My Teeth Healthy?

The best way to ensure good long-term dental health is to see a dentist regularly for exams and cleanings. Even the best home dental care routine is no replacement for a professional cleaning, which reaches areas that your toothbrush or floss cannot. Good oral health offers advantages to your entire body, reducing the risk of harmful infections and inflammation. It’s never too late to improve your dental hygiene – call us today to get started.

Teaching Oral Hygiene to Kids

Helping kids learn proper oral hygiene sets them up for a lifetime of good habits. Dental checkups should begin at age one, and a child should learn how to brush and floss teeth around age six. However, children sometimes dislike brushing their teeth, and many children are fearful of the dentist. To encourage good habits, we recommend using positive reinforcement tools. Coloring books, stickers, and teeth-friendly treats can be used as a reward for good habits at home or after a successful dental visit. Give us a call if you have questions about providing oral hygiene instructions to children.

What Is an Example of a Good Dental Hygiene Routine?

If you’re ready to improve your oral hygiene in Kennesaw, begin with this easy-to-follow routine. First, use a manual or oscillating toothbrush to clean each side of your mouth for about 30 seconds each side. The toothbrush should be able to fit easily in all areas of your mouth, if not, the brush’s head may be too large. After brushing, glide dental floss between the teeth to remove food particles and other debris. Finish the routine with mouthwash, if recommended by your dentist. Call our office if you require further dental hygiene instructions.
