Five Dental Hygiene Practices Recommended By Dentists

Posted on 8/8/2022 by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS
Five Dental Hygiene Practices Recommended By DentistsDental hygiene is the only sure way of taking care of your teeth. With poor dental hygiene, you will eventually expose your teeth to bacteria that can lead to dental diseases. Thankfully, dental care practices are very simple to follow and can be attained by any person. Among the recommended dental care practices are:

Daily Brushing

It is recommended that you brush your teeth at least twice each day. You may rush more than twice if you want but a minimum of twice a day is required. This is the one dental hygiene practice that is universally accepted.

Daily Flossing

You are also required to floss your teeth at least once per day. Flossing is an optional dental hygiene procedure but when done regularly, it prevents the build-up of tartar and plaque in your teeth. This is a simple procedure that should not cost you anything.

Swab With Mouthwash Regularly

Mouthwash swabbing is a great way of killing all bacteria before they grow and cause infections. The beauty of mouthwash is that it gets into hidden areas of your mouth where regular brushing and flossing may not reach.

Avoid Sugary Foods

Foods that are responsible for dental diseases such as tooth decay and gum disease should be avoided. Basically, high sugar foods such as carbohydrates are responsible for these conditions. By avoiding sugary foods and drinks, you reduce the chances of bacterial attacks and infections. It is such bacterial infections that lead to tooth decay when they go unchecked

Visit a Dentist Twice a Year

The other dental hygiene best practice involves regular visits to the dentist. Dentists perform a deep cleaning during appointments. Each year, make sure you get checked by a dentist at least twice. You may also have special arrangements with your dentists for regular cleaning and checkup.
