The most important way you can keep your smile healthy is to follow a good at-home oral care routine. While excellent home care begins with brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing every day, when you visit J. de Graffenried Dentistry, we will review your routine with you and make recommendations on how you can improve it. Our dentists and hygienists want you to have the best home care possible, and we encourage you to use oral hygiene aids, such as the Sonicare electric toothbrush and a Waterpik, as part of your home care routine. Please call us at 903-218-4044 if you have questions about at-home oral care or to make an appointment with our dentists in Kilgore, Texas.
Sonicare electric toothbrushes are one of the best oral hygiene aids that you can use. These brushes deliver thousands of brush strokes per minute, whipping toothpaste into microbubbles and driving them deep between teeth and along the gum line for gentle, effective cleaning. Electric toothbrushes also gently clean your gums, stimulating and rejuvenating them to improve circulation and keep your gum tissue healthy.
Waterpik water flossers are an excellent way to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Also known as a dental water jet or oral irrigator, Waterpiks direct streams of water within your mouth to remove food particles and other debris from your mouth. Waterpiks are a fast and easy way to clean your teeth, flush out bacteria from periodontal pockets, and keep braces and dental work (bridges, crowns, implants, etc.) clean. Waterpiks are also very gentle on your gums, and they are less likely to cause pain and bleeding in individuals with sensitive teeth.
Sonicare electric toothbrushes and Waterpiks are an excellent investment for your oral and overall health. When used daily, they are highly effective in preventing gum disease and cavities as well as brightening your smile.
When you visit our office, we will be happy to provide you with additional information about Sonicare toothbrushes and Waterpiks. Many of our team members and patients use these oral hygiene aids and love them. We know that you will love them, too!
