9 Tips for Good Oral Hygiene

Did you know that your smile can tell a lot about you? Not only it is an indication of your mood at the moment, it can give dentists a clue to your overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to such complications as oral and facial pain, gum disease and a variety of mouth infections that can affect major organs of the body.

That’s why practicing good oral hygiene and seeing a dentist regularly is so important for people of all ages. The state-of-the-art practice of Family Dental Center of Manteca and our skilled professionals are dedicated to keeping your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.

Habits that promote good oral health:

1. Brush twice a day: Brush for at least two minutes, using fluoridated toothpaste.
2. Floss daily: It removes plaque from places your toothbrush can’t reach.
3. Replace your toothbrush: Do this every three months or when it appears warn.
4. Visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. This is one of the most effective ways to detect the early signs of gum disease.
5. Limit soda, coffee and alcohol: Excess amounts can cause tooth decay.
6. Drink milk: Milk contains calcium, which strengthens teeth and builds stronger enamel.
7. Some carbs are okay: Despite their popularity, low-carb diets can cause bad breath. A balanced, dental-healthy diet can help reduce tooth decay.
8. Take a daily dose of vitamins C and D: These vitamins help support the absorption of healthy mouth minerals such as calcium and phosphorous, which support the bone and gum tissue, keeping it healthy. This is an easy way to maintain dental hygiene and fight gum disease.
9. Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco: These are known to contribute to gum disease and oral cancer.

Dental emergencies can come about in any number of ways. Your discomfort may be due to an injury to the oral facial area, the acute flare-up of a longstanding problem, or the result of the sudden onset of seemingly inexplicable pain. While there are many reasons for seeking urgent dental care, some of the most common ones include severe toothaches, chipped or fractured teeth, problematic wisdom teeth, a dental abscess, a broken filling, a loosened crown, or a broken denture. Whatever the case may be, it’s essential to contact our office promptly for care. If left untreated many dental emergencies can quickly worsen, resulting in more severe consequences to your oral health and overall well-being.

Enjoy The Benefits Of A Healthy And Beautiful Smile!

June is Oral Health Month, so it’s a good time to reflect on the health of your smile and those of your loved ones. Enjoying the benefits of a vibrant smile in tip-top condition is not something that you can take for granted. The best way to avert the development of cavities, gum disease, and other issues is with good oral hygiene, a nutritious diet, a healthy lifestyle, and a program of preventive dental care. Remember, it’s important not to hold off seeing the dentist until you’re in terrible pain or think there’s something wrong. By scheduling a routine appointment for a comprehensive checkup and professional cleaning, we can help you keep your smile looking and functioning at its very best. 

As skilled and experienced providers of care, we emphasize the importance of dental prevention to help maintain optimal oral health. We encourage patients to come in twice a year for routine checkups and professional cleanings. In this way, we can monitor your oral health, reduce your risk of dental disease, and detect any issues early in their onset when they are typically the simplest to treat.

While proper dental care is essential at every stage of life, it’s especially important for children to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health. With routine checkups, preventive treatment, and age-appropriate education in the best methods of taking care of their teeth, we can help your little ones protect their smiles from dental disease. We also monitor your children’s dental and jaw development as they grow; keeping a close watch to determine if any orthodontic intervention will be needed to align their smiles.

We’re proud of the reputation we’ve established for providing skilled and compassionate care while achieving outstanding treatment outcomes. We look forward to helping you keep your smile in tip-top condition. For more information on our office and the many state-of-the-art services that we provide, give us a call today.
