Brush twice a day

Brushing your teeth twice a day is the one of the best things you can do to take care of your teeth on a regular basis. Brushing helps to remove the sticky bacteria that builds up on teeth, called plaque. Plaque is responsible for gum disease, decay, and even tooth loss. Therefore, you need to brush to keep this bad bacterium at bay. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, too!


Brushing isn’t enough to prevent cavities and gum disease. Studies show that plaque can build back up within a matter of hours after brushing. Flossing in between the teeth and all the way up to the gum line will help remove the plaque and food particles from places that your toothbrush can’t reach. Floss once a day to keep those pearly whites in check.

Visit your dentist

Regular dental checkups are essential to your oral health. Scheduling with your dentist every six months is a good rule of thumb, but don’t hesitate to come in between visits if you experience any issues. Regular visits and dental cleanings ensure that your mouth remains as healthy as possible.


If you experience any problems with your teeth, gums, cheeks, or tongue at any time, please contact your local dentist as quickly as possible. Issues such as pain or changes to the look or feel of your teeth and mouth need to be examined. Your dentist is there to take care of your oral health at every stage and needs to know about any changes so they can resolve the issue quickly and prevent further complications.
