While our dentist and team will do everything possible to help you protect your teeth and smile, no professional treatment can ever replace a good oral hygiene routine at home. It is essential that you take care of your smile through proper home care, including:
- Brushing your teeth at least twice each day. Make sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste.
- Flossing at least once each day. The best time to floss is right before going to sleep at night.
- Maintaining a balanced, nutritious diet. Limiting your intake of sugary and acidic foods helps prevent tooth decay and promotes better overall health.
- Making and keeping regular dental appointments with our dentist. These routine visits allow us to provide additional preventive care and help ensure that any problems that do develop are diagnosed and treated quickly.
Dr. Erik Palmberg and our team will review your oral hygiene with you during your regular dental exams. We will provide additional information and instruction on any steps you can take to further improve your oral health, and we may also make recommendations about oral hygiene aids that could help improve your normal home care routine.
