threesmiles-resized-600A few Secrets to having “No Cavities!” at your next dental exam…

1. Floss!

Simply put, debris gets trapped in between your teeth, and the longer it sits there, the more problems it can cause. Clear the debris by flossing after meals and before you go to bed.

2. Floss properly!

I see too many people flossing incorrectly, here is a video for proper flossing technique.

3.Use Fluoride.

Fluoride strengthens the enamel on your teeth. Check your toothpaste and mouthrinse and make sure that it has fluoride in it.

4. Use an electric toothbrush.

Use an electric tooth brush such as the Sonicare at least twice a day. It vibrates at a very high frequency clearing debris from your teeth. Most people brush for too short a period of time, many electric toothbrushes will count the 2 minutes of recommended brush time.

5.Go for routine oral hygiene visits.

The average person should get a professional dental cleaning twice a year. There are many areas of the mouth that are missed with routine home care – a professional cleaning will get to these areas. If you follow these steps strictly you will improve your oral hygiene and increase the likelihood of hearing the words “No Cavities!” at your next exam!]]>
