Laying the Foundation for a Healthy Smile
Proper oral hygiene is the cornerstone of dental health, playing a crucial role in preventing cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Brushing and flossing are the primary tools at our disposal to maintain a clean and healthy mouth.
The Importance of a Consistent Routine
Establishing a consistent oral hygiene routine is paramount. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily work synergistically to remove plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that accumulates on teeth and gums.
Choosing the Right Tools
Selecting the appropriate toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss is vital. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, approved by dental health authorities, to ensure effectiveness and safety.
