Understanding the Importance of Cleanings and Regular Checkups

It's essential to attend regular checkups at least twice a year. Regular checkups help detect oral issues in their early stages when they are better treated. Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining good oral health. During a regular checkup, your dentist may perform the following:

  • Inspect your teeth and gums for signs of gingivitis and other periodontal issues
  • Perform a thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth
  • Check for cavities or signs of tooth decay
  • Search for any issues that you may not immediately see or feel

By visiting a dentist every six months, you get the chance to talk with your dentist as well as receive answers for any questions you may have about your oral health and the routine you follow to keep your mouth healthy.

Developing a Good Oral Hygiene Routine

A good oral hygiene routine is developed in childhood. It is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day many people tried to brush their teeth after every meal when it is possible. Flossing every day is also important to remove any build-up that may be stuck between your teeth using a good antibacterial mouthwash will help keep bacteria at bay. You may need to help your child brush their teeth when they are very young, making sure to always get the back teeth.

Choosing the right products for your oral care is also essential. Keep in mind when you are searching for a new toothpaste or toothbrush that the American Dental Association approves it. If you are ever unsure about a dental product consult with your dentist. There are special toothpaste mouthwash and toothbrushes designed for young children. Never use adult toothpaste or mouthwash young children because they can be hazardous if swallowed. If you ever have any questions about you or your child oral health regiment, contact All Smiles Dentistry today to speak to one of our amazing specialists.

Tips for Maintaining Healthy Teeth for Life

Good oral hygiene, along with regular dental checkups help you maintain healthy teeth and gums. There are many things you can do in-between visits to ensure your teeth stay beautiful and healthy for life. Some of these things include:

  • Brushing at least twice a day, especially after meals with a soft bristle brush
  • Using a fluoride toothpaste which helps to Harden the tooth's enamel and reduces the risk of decay
  • Flossing your teeth daily using a slow, gentle sawing motion

  • Limiting sugary foods as the day calls bacteria in the form of dental plaque

Bonnie P.

I am very satisfied with my experience at the all-new All Smiles Dentistry. Alyssia, my hygienist, was very professional and explained all procedures clearly. Dr. Killeen took the time to visit and, although I know he was busy, did not give me the impression that he was in a hurry. I am so glad I stayed with All Smiles Dentistry.
