Like many things in life, caring for your oral health is easier with a good routine. But, how should you create your own oral health routine? Dr. Ammons and the rest of our team have weighed in on 4 tips that will help you and your family establish a preventive care routine than can protect and preserve your smile for years to come.

  1. Regularly Visit Our Office
  2. Regular cleanings and exams from our dental team can help prevent a variety of dental issues as well as facilitate treatment on any conditions that may arise. Most common dental issues, like gum disease or cavities, can be reduced or eliminated with proper preventive care.

  3. Remember That Your Diet Matters
  4. People often overlook the importance of a healthy diet when it comes to their oral health. However, choosing healthy foods while limiting foods high in sugar, like soda and candy, can help eliminate the potential of developing cavities and other dental issues down the road.

  5. Be Aware of Changes in Your Oral Health
  6. If you notice any sudden, unusual changes to your teeth, gums, or mouth, please let us know. Our friendly team can help you determine whether it’s cause for concern or nothing to worry about.

  7. Carve Out Time for Your Teeth
  8. One of the easiest ways to make sure your oral health routine becomes a habit is to commit to setting aside the time each day. You should brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time and floss every day. Performing this ritual at the same time can be especially helpful when establishing a routine for children!

We hope these tips will help you and your family embark on the journey to good oral health – and if you have any tips you’d like to add to our list, let us know!
