The best way to prevent oral health issues is through proper dental hygiene and teeth cleaning. This requires both an at-home routine and biannual visits to our Kinnelon, New Jersey office for thorough cleanings and examinations. During these visits, one of our dentists will assess your oral health using state-of-the-art technology to make sure there are no looming issues that will interfere with the future health and beauty of your smile.
Your at-home preventative dentistry routine needn’t be troublesome. In fact, it should take only a few minutes every day. The best way to prevent dental problems at home is through an oral hygiene routine that includes:
Brushing – with a soft bristled toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste, brush your teeth after every meal and snack
Flossing – floss in between every tooth, down to the gum line, at least once, but preferable twice a day
Avoiding cavities – by limiting your intake of simple carbohydrates and surgery snacks and beverages, you can help prevent tooth decay
Taking these simple steps will not only keep your teeth and gums their healthiest, they can help you avoid dental procedures such as tooth fillings, root canals, and even extractions.
During your regularly scheduled visits to our office, we can discuss the most effective ways to prevent dental problems and help keep your smile healthy and beautiful well into the future.
