Oral Hygiene in Marietta, GA

A smile that looks, feels, and smells great is possible with proper oral hygiene in Marietta. To achieve your best smile, visit a dentist regularly for professional cleanings and practice good oral hygiene at home. Our dentists are committed to helping people of all ages improve their hygiene and oral health.

What Are Dental Hygiene Habits?

The importance of dental hygiene is that it keeps the gums and teeth free of damaging plaque and other debris. With regular dental cleanings and good habits at home, debris is eliminated before it can cause cavities or gingivitis. Even if you haven’t visited a dentist in some time, it’s still possible to improve your dental hygiene. Give our office a call today to get started.

Daily Oral Hygiene Tips

Do you wish to improve your oral health, but aren’t sure how to get started? Try these simple tips for a clean and healthy smile:

  • Clean your teeth after each meal using a soft- or medium-bristle toothbrush, spending 30 seconds on each side of the mouth
  • At least one time per day, use dental floss to remove debris from between the teeth
  • Use dental health products that contain fluoride
  • Avoid using cigarettes or other tobacco products
  • Limit consumption of sugary treats and beverages

While these tips are a great way to get started, the best way to achieve good oral hygiene is visiting a dentist for a cleaning. Contact us today to make an appointment.

How Important Is It to Keep My Smile Healthy?

Taking a few minutes each day to care for your teeth is important; however, it’s no replacement for regular cleanings from a dentist. Only a skilled dentist or dental hygienist can remove plaque and debris from each area of your mouth. Dental cleanings help prevent cavities, gingivitis, and more serious conditions like tooth loss and infection. Take control of your oral health – call us now to schedule an appointment.

How Can I Help My Child Learn About Oral Hygiene Practices?

At our practice, we recommend that children begin learning about the importance of dental care around age six. Most children are coordinated enough to hold and use a toothbrush around this age; however, they aren’t always responsive to oral hygiene instructions. If you are a parent who is struggling to teach your child about dental hygiene, we can help. Our dentists can provide you with a variety of techniques to encourage your child to practice good dental habits. This might include using rewards and other positive reinforcement strategies to help make the experience enjoyable.

How Can I Create a Good Dental Hygiene Routine?

Setting up an effective routine for oral hygiene in Marietta takes just a few minutes each day. First, use a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush to clean each quadrant of your mouth for two minutes. This can be done before you go to bed and at least one other time each day. Flossing is another vital part of an oral care routine; without flossing, you may be leaving entire parts of your teeth unclean. Lastly, consider using an antibacterial mouthwash to combat gingivitis and bad breath. If you have further questions about starting an oral hygiene routine, please give us a call.
