Your Oral Health Essentials

We’ve all been told countless times that daily brushing and flossing are the cornerstones of dental hygiene. While this is undoubtedly true, there’s more to the equation than just that.  Don’t wait until your next trip to the dentist office in Highland Park to start taking better care of your teeth, begin today!

Toothbrush Care

After brushing your teeth, ensure that your toothbrush is properly rinsed and placed in an upright position. You’ll want to make sure that it’s stored in an open area, otherwise, it can become a breeding ground for microorganisms. We recommend replacing your toothbrush every three to four months for the best results.

Brush Your Tongue

To eliminate bad breath and keep bacteria at bay, always scrub your tongue after you brush for two minutes. Some toothbrushes have a scrubber on the back of the brush head, but if yours doesn’t, there are also separate tools you can easily purchase at most drug stores.

Fluoride

Remember to use products with fluoride, such as toothpaste and mouthwash, to help harden tooth enamel and prevent cavities. Acidic foods and drinks are less able to damage tooth enamel when strengthened by fluoride.

Help from a Professional

The staff at your dentist office in Highland Park are experts when it comes to your teeth, so don’t hesitate to ask them questions. Visit your dentist and dental hygienist for regular check-ups and be sure to mention any problems you might have. Remember, they are here to help!
