Tips for Maintaining Oral Health at Home

Good oral hygiene practices at home are crucial for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Here are some tips to help you and your family maintain optimal oral health between dental visits:

  1. Brush Twice Daily: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth at least twice a day. Make sure to brush all surfaces of your teeth, including the front, back, and chewing surfaces.
  2. Floss Daily: Flossing removes plaque and food particles from between your teeth and under the gum line, areas that your toothbrush can’t reach.
  3. Use Mouthwash: An antimicrobial mouthwash can help reduce plaque and bacteria in your mouth, promoting healthier gums.
  4. Healthy Diet: Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can support your oral health. Limit sugary and acidic foods that can contribute to tooth decay.
  5. Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water helps wash away food particles and bacteria, reducing the risk of plaque buildup.
  6. Regular Dental Visits: Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings to ensure any issues are detected and treated early.

Common Questions About Family Dental Care

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit by their first birthday or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth.

Most patients benefit from dental check-ups and cleanings every six months. However, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits based on individual oral health needs.

We understand that some children may experience dental anxiety. Our team is trained to provide gentle, compassionate care and uses behavior management techniques to help children feel comfortable and relaxed during their visit.

Yes, dental X-rays are safe for children. We use digital X-rays, which have significantly lower radiation exposure compared to traditional X-rays, and we take all necessary precautions to ensure safety.
