If you wish to have a top-notch oral health, it’s important to use the proper techniques in your oral hygiene routine each day. If you don’t do the right things, or even if you do the right things but you perform them incorrectly, your smile won’t have the results you’re looking for. So, to help you have the best oral hygiene routine possible, our Glendale Boutique Dental team recommends doing the following things:

-Brush: Brush your teeth every morning and every night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Make sure you brush for at least two minutes each time and you also spend the same amount of time scrubbing each quadrant of your smile.

-Floss: Floss your smile at least once a day with a flossing product of your choice. If you scrape the sides of each tooth, the plaque and food particles will be removed and they will no longer threaten to harm your chompers. As you floss, please be gentle along the gumline.

-Rinse: Rinse your mouth daily with beneficial mouthwash. Rinsing will complete the cleaning job, nourish and strengthen your teeth, and freshen your breath. Make sure you rinse after you’ve brushed and flossed your smile.

-Visit your dentist: Keep up on your six month checkups so you can have your smile professionally cleaned on a regular basis. These appointments will allow your dental team to remove the plaque from your teeth, take care of your gums, and nourish and strengthen your smile.
