How To Protect Your Teeth and Gums
While some dental conditions are caused by factors beyond your control (genetics, unavoidable trauma), many common dental problems can be prevented by good hygiene. A little bit of effort every day can stave off significant discomfort and expense in the future.
The steps you should take include:
- Brushing your teeth at least twice a day. After meals, if possible. You should use a soft-bristled tooth brush (a Las Vegas dentist can give you a specific recommendation) and brush in a circular fashion. But don’t brush too hard; that can wear out your tooth enamel.
- Floss daily. Particulate matter sometimes gets caught under your gum line and between your teeth, and even the best toothbrush will struggle to reach it. Flossing removes these problems and protects your gums. Again, we’ll be happy to demonstrate proper technique
- See our dentists at least twice a year for routine, regularly scheduled check-ups and cleanings.
It doesn’t take much to protect your teeth. Once these steps become habits, you’ll be on your way to a lifetime of sound dental health.
Seeing Us Regularly
The last item in the above list, seeing a Las Vegas dentist once every six months, is crucial. This is true even if you practice sound dental hygiene with complete precision and regularity.
Everyone will end up with some sort of plaque that won’t respond to basic home care, no matter how particular you are with your brushing and flossing. It’s often located in a part of your mouth that’s difficult for you to reach.
We can reach it. With our skills, training, experience and unique perspective, we’re able to address the problems you can’t. Regularly scheduled cleanings are a crucial element of maintaining healthy teeth.
