How To Brush Your Teeth

Brushing your teeth is an important part of your dental care routine. For a healthy mouth and smile the ADA recommends you:
  • Brush your teeth using a soft bristled brush.
  • Brush teeth three times per day
  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months
  • Use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.

Flossing

One of the ADA oral hygiene recommendations is for people to clean between their teeth once a day. The should engage in daily, flossing cleaning. Cleaning devices include not only dental floss, but also wooden sticks, small brushes, and oral irrigators

Root Canal Treatment

We use root canal treatment to find the cause and then treat problems of the tooth’s soft core (the dental pulp). Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment has given dentists a safe way of saving teeth.

Preventing Tooth loss

A quick guide to prevent tooth loss:
  • Brush teeth daily
  • Floss daily.
  • Visit your dentist every six months.
  • Limit sugar intake.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet.
  • Avoid tobacco and cigarette products.

Halitosis

Halitosis – or chronic bad breath – is something that mints, mouthwash or a good brushing can’t solve. Unlike “morning breath” or a strong smell that lingers after a tuna sandwich, halitosis remains for an extended amount of time and may be a sign of something more serious.

Dental Care for Seniors

Age in and of itself is not a dominant or sole factor in determining oral health. However, certain medical conditions, such as arthritis in the hands and fingers, may make brushing or flossing teeth difficult to impossible to perform. Drugs can also affect oral health and may make a change in your dental treatment necessary.
