Visit our clinic as soon as possible if it’s been more than six months. We also welcome new patients to our clinic. In the meantime, please follow these common oral maintenance tips.

Floss Daily

The best time to do this would be before you go to bed. However, you could also floss at least an hour before you go to school or work.

Schedule Regular Cleaning and Checkups

We strongly advise that you schedule appointments with us at least once every six to twelve months. This will help us take care of minor issues before they become serious.

Brush With Fluoride Toothpaste

This will keep your teeth white and help prevent cavities and decay. It could also reduce your annual dental bill.

Replace Your Toothbrush Every Three to Four Months

Your tooth brush loses its efficiency to clean your teeth effectively because the bristles have degraded over time.

Brush Your Teeth At Least Twice A Day With Soft Bristles

You especially will want to brush in the morning and before you go to bed. Cleaning your teeth with soft bristles helps you keep your original tooth enamel intact.

Be Mindful Of What You Eat and Drink

Too much coffee and sugar can stain your teeth and accelerate tooth decay, especially if you do not brush every day. Beware that some acidic fruits can erode the surface of your teeth.

Make Better Lifestyle Choices

If you stop smoking, you can prolong the life of your teeth. You also can prevent them from turning yellow or brown, and you can stop gum disease. Drinking less alcohol also is better for your mouth. The choice is yours.
