Oral Hygiene in Virginia

Oral hygiene in Virginia plays an essential role when it comes to enjoying lifelong dental health. With routine dental cleanings from our office and a dedicated home dental care regimen, you can achieve a winning smile.

What is Oral Hygiene?

Maintaining proper cleanliness of the teeth and gums is known in dentistry as oral hygiene. This can be achieved through regular cleanings from a dentist, where hard-to-reach areas of the mouth are cleaned and polished. Between dental visits, follow a regular dental care routine that includes regularly brushing and flossing the teeth. If you’re ready to improve your tooth hygiene, call us now to get started.

Oral Hygiene Tips

With just a few minutes each day, you can help prevent tooth decay, bad breath, gingivitis, and more. Use these helpful hygiene tips to get started:

  • After each meal or twice per day, use a medium- or soft-bristled toothbrush to gently clean teeth
  • Use dental floss every day to remove debris from between the teeth
  • Select toothpastes and mouthwashes that contain fluoride
  • Limit intake of sugary foods and beverages
  • Avoid smoking or chewing tobacco

In addition to following these hygiene tips, it’s important to visit a dentist for regular dental hygiene cleanings. Contact us today to set up an appointment.

How Can I Achieve a Healthy Smile?

While taking great care of your teeth at home is essential, it’s no replacement for scheduling regular appointments with a dentist. Only a dentist can diagnose and treat oral health problems before they do damage to your teeth. Maintaining your oral hygiene in Virginia does more than just create a beautiful, healthy smile, it also reduces the risk of infection and chronic inflammation. Take care of your teeth and your health – get in touch with us today to make a dental hygiene appointment.

How Can I Teach My Child Good Dental Hygiene Practices?

At our practice, we offer compassionate care to patients of all ages. Because of this, we know how difficult it can sometimes be to give oral hygiene instructions to children. If your child is fearful of going to the dentist or is struggling to learn dental care at home, we can help. Talk to your dentist about positive reinforcement strategies that you can use to make dental care fun for your child. Children often respond well to rewards and treats like stickers, tooth-friendly foods, and coloring books. Our dentists can help you find oral hygiene solutions that work for your family.

Can I Have a Great Dental Hygiene Routine?

The importance of dental hygiene is that it helps you avoid severe dental problems in the future by keeping the teeth and gums free of decay. This includes brushing each side of your teeth thoroughly at least twice per day. Spend about 30 seconds on each side of your mouth, gently brushing with the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle. It’s also recommended you use dental floss, as it removes debris that become stuck between the teeth. Using mouthwash is another way to keep bacteria and bad breath at bay. Call us today to learn more about establishing a healthy oral hygiene routine.
