Our dentist, Dr. Mohamed Waheed, strongly encourages you to make preventive dental care a top priority. This is because there are many dental problems in the world today that can irritate, harm and even destroy your smile. Some of those dental problems include tooth decay, gum disease, enamel erosion, tooth cracks and more. In order to avoid these issues and make preventive care a top priority, you should do the following things:
-Brush: You should brush your teeth every morning and night for two minutes each time. Brushing can help you clean the surfaces of your teeth and even strengthen your tooth enamel. When you brush, it’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
-Floss: You should floss your teeth at least once a day, preferably at night after you’re done eating. Flossing can remove the dangerous substances from between your teeth and along the gumline to help you have a safe and healthy smile.
-Attend your dental checkups: You should visit our office for your checkup every six months. The cleaning treatment provided can remove the stubborn and dangerous substances your oral hygiene routine cannot remove. The checkup can give our dental team the chance to give you the tips you need to have the top-notch oral health you deserve.
