Oral Hygiene in Tampa, FL

Small steps go a long way when it comes to maintaining excellent oral hygiene. When you know how to take care of your teeth and you make the commitment to follow through on that knowledge, you’ll be rewarded with dazzling, healthy teeth and gums that will serve you well in life.

What Do I Need to Know About Dental Hygiene?

Proper dental hygiene is focused on the daily care of teeth and gums. It’s a series of simple steps that anyone can take to dramatically improve their chances of holding on to healthy teeth for life. When you brush and floss daily and visit the dentist twice yearly, you are taking control of your dental health.

Oral Hygiene Tips

Oral hygiene and general health are closely linked. A healthy lifestyle that includes eating lots of fruits and vegetables promotes a healthy body and healthy teeth. You will also benefit your dental health when you avoid smoking or chewing tobacco and limit sugary foods and drinks. Visit the dentist on a routine basis for professional cleanings and early detection of cavities or other problems. For more healthy teeth tips, make an appointment with one of our dentists today. We look forward to being your partners in excellent oral health.

What Happens If I Don’t Follow a Dental Hygiene Routine?

It’s hard to overstate the importance of dental hygiene. If your teeth or gums cause you pain or you are missing teeth, your quality of life can be affected in several ways. Eating will be less enjoyable due to difficulty with chewing, and the impact on your appearance can be detrimental to your feelings of confidence and self-esteem. By practicing at-home oral hygiene in Tampa and visiting a dentist twice a year, you can avoid those negative outcomes and maintain an excellent quality of life.

Oral Hygiene for Kids

As soon as your child’s first tooth pokes through the gums, you can start gently cleaning with a rice-grain size amount of fluoride toothpaste. After age 3, your dentist may recommend a fluoride supplement for your child if the local water supply doesn’t contain it. Even though your child’s baby teeth are only temporary and will be replaced in elementary school by permanent teeth, now is the time to help your child get in the habit of following smart oral hygiene instructions.

How to Have Healthy Teeth

For the best results from brushing your teeth, hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle; there should be a slight tilt toward the gums when you brush. Brush the teeth gently, using small, circular movements. After brushing, rinse your mouth with water and spit to make sure all of the loosened plaque is washed out of your mouth. If you experience any pain or bleeding while brushing your teeth, discuss it with your dentist. Your dentist can also provide dental care and hygiene advice that is specific to your teeth and gums.
