The most important thing you can do to maintain a healthy smile is to follow a good oral care routine at home. This begins with brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing every day.
A dental check-up twice a year is also important. At your check-up, our dentists and hygienists will discuss your home care routine with you and make recommendations to help you achieve the best home care possible.
We recommend using oral hygiene aids, such as the Sonicare electric toothbrush and a Waterpik, as part of your home care routine.
Sonicare electric toothbrushes deliver thousands of brush strokes per minute. They drive microbubbles of toothpaste between teeth and along the gumline for gentle, effective cleaning of teeth and gums. Electric toothbrushes also promote gum health by stimulating circulation.
Waterpik water flossers are another excellent aid to oral health. Water flossers (sometimes called dental water jets or oral irrigators) stream water into your mouth to remove food particles, flush out bacteria around your gums, and clean around braces and dental work (implants, crowns, bridges, etc.).
Sonicare and Waterpik oral hygiene aids are an excellent investment in your oral —and your overall health. When you visit our office, we will be happy to provide you with more information. Many of our staff use these oral hygiene aids and love them, and we're confident you will love them too.
