Preventive Dentistry for Ohio Families in Chardon, Jefferson, Painesville
Ensuring Your Oral Health with Preventive Dental Care
Preventive dentistry begins at home. Creating a daily oral hygiene routine is the key to unlocking great dental health—especially when it comes time for your six-month checkups! At our dental practices, our experienced, friendly teams can discuss products and techniques that will benefit your oral health. If you’re not sure you’re using the right toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, or rinse, we’re happy to talk about your options, and what you may need to focus on the most to get the best results.
For your daily homecare routine, we recommend using fluoridated products. We also recommend the following oral hygiene steps:
- Brush your teeth in the mornings and the evenings. It’s particularly important to scrub those pearly whites before bedtime!
- Floss at least once a day. It doesn’t matter if you floss before or after brushing, only that you expel the plaque between your teeth.
- Clean your tongue. Using a tongue scraper can remove the food particles and bacteria on the back of your tongue. Doing this can rid your mouth of oral debris and freshen your breath.
- Use an oral rinse to complete your routine. There are many types and flavors out there to suit your individual needs. Rinses can remove plaque and food dislodged from brushing and flossing—as well as giving you better breath.
