What should I do at home to take care of my smile?

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day
  • Floss daily
  • Maintain a healthy diet
  • Continue to visit the dentist regularly

What is the best way to brush my teeth?

We recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste containing fluoride. We also recommend that you switch out your toothbrush every three months. You may also want to consider using an electric toothbrush, as they are highly effective in keeping your teeth clean.

Why do I need to floss?

Flossing cleans between the teeth and below the gumline where brushing does not reach. This removes food debris and helps prevent bacteria and plaque from accumulating in those areas and causing cavities and gum disease. The most effective time to floss is right before you go to bed.

How often should I have a dental checkup?

You should visit the dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. More frequent visits may be recommended depending on your oral health.
