Oral Hygiene in Pembroke Pines, FL

Achieving a glowing, healthy smile is possible with excellent oral hygiene in Pembroke Pines. With regular cleanings from our dental office and a good dental hygiene routine at home, you can enjoy the benefits of a decay-free smile.

Oral Hygiene Practices

The process of keeping the teeth and gums free of decay through dental cleanings and regular care at home is known as oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing at home are simply not enough. Without regular dental cleanings, plaque and other debris can still build up around the teeth and gum line. Over time, these debris can lead to gum disease, cavities, and infections. Protect your dental health by scheduling a dental cleaning with our office today.

Tips for Healthy Teeth

Are you wondering how to improve your dental hygiene? Get started today by following these easy oral hygiene tips:

  • After each meal or two times daily, carefully brush your teeth using a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush
  • Once per day, use dental floss to remove trapped debris from between the teeth
  • Eat a diet that is low in sugary snacks and beverages
  • If you smoke, stop
  • Choose oral health items that contain fluoride
  • See a dentist regularly for routine oral exams and cleanings

Improving your oral hygiene in Pembroke Pines is possible with these simple tips from our office. Call us today to learn more.

What’s the Best Way to Keep My Teeth Healthy?

While taking great care of your teeth at home is important, it is no replacement for regular care from a dentist. Visiting a dentist regularly is the best way to maintain good dental hygiene and keep tooth decay and gingivitis at bay. A healthy smile benefits your overall health, decreasing the chances of developing chronic inflammation or a dental infection that affects other areas of the body. Healthier teeth and gums are just a phone call away – get in touch with us now to book an appointment.

Teaching Oral Hygiene to Children

Our dentists recommend that young children begin learning about dental care around age six, which is when most children can hold and use a toothbrush by themselves. However, showing children the importance of dental hygiene isn’t always a simple task. Many parents struggle with children who are uninterested in dental care or experience anxiety when visiting the dentist. Fortunately, using positive reinforcement methods can help your child feel comfortable with dental care. We recommend offering the child a sticker, tooth-friendly snack, or other small reward after he or she exhibits good dental behavior. To learn more about oral hygiene for kids, please give us a call.

What Are the Guidelines for a Good Dental Care Routine?

Maintaining your smile’s brilliance through regular home care is an important part of your overall dental health. To get started, select a manual or electric toothbrush that fits inside your mouth without a struggle. Twice per day, use the toothbrush to clean each quadrant of your teeth for about two minutes. Our dentists also recommend flossing once per day, which removes trapped debris from between the teeth. If your dentist has suggested mouthwash, swish the solution around all areas of your mouth either before or after brushing. Please call our office if you have any questions regarding these oral hygiene instructions.
