icons4x3200px

Everyone wants a healthy smile, but many people don’t take the time to take good care of their teeth. But a proper oral hygiene routine is surprisingly quick and easy. Just a few minutes each day at home and regular professional check-ups can keep your smile attractive and healthy. To develop good dental care habits at home, try these simple tips.

Benefits of Daily Dental Care

Good dental care requires three things. The first is finding the best dentist for you. Once you’ve found an affordable dentist, you need to get regular check-ups and cleanings. The third part of a healthy smile is proper at-home dental care. The purpose of oral hygiene at home is to keep your smile healthy by providing these dental benefits:

  • Remove plaque around the teeth and gums
  • Eliminate bad breath
  • Fight tooth decay
  • Prevent gum disease
  • Reduce the risk of infections in the tissue and bone around teeth
  • Save you the pain and the price of treating major dental problems

Healthy Habits at Home

The best dentist will tell you that great teeth require great tools. Yet everyone has different needs, so ask an affordable dentist which dental tools are the right ones for you. Then follow these tried-and-true tips to keep your smile healthy at home:

  • Use an ADA-approved toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouth rinse, and other dental cleaning tools.
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, once in the morning and once at night before bed.
  • Spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth.
  • Use floss at least once a day every day to remove debris trapped in teeth.
  • Maintain your healthy at-home habits by getting regular professional cleanings from an affordable dentist.
