Oral Hygiene Habits

To keep your teeth and gums healthy, it’s important to brush and floss daily. Establishing good oral hygiene habits in childhood sets you up for a lifetime of healthy smiles. If you don’t have regular cleanings and dental exams, you can develop plaque and bacteria that lead to cavities and even tooth loss. Follow these simple steps to keep your mouth clean and healthy:

  • Brush your teeth every day with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Clean between your teeth every day with floss or another type of between-the-teeth cleaner
  • Snack smart – limit sugary foods and drinks
  • Don’t smoke or chew tobacco
  • See our Raleigh dentist every three to six months for professional cleanings
