So, if you have questions about oral hygiene, it’s time to find the answers. Our dentists, Drs. Perry, Gomez, and Bennet would like to help you by giving you the answers to commonly asked questions about oral hygiene.

What should be included in my oral hygiene routine?

Make sure to include brushing, flossing, and rinsing in your routine. You also need to visit your dentist regularly. When brushing, use a soft-bristled toothbrush. When flossing, use a tool that is easy to use. When rinsing, rinse with a mouthwash that fights tooth decay and gum disease.

How often should I clean my smile?

You should clean your smile twice a day. You should do so by brushing every morning and night and flossing and rinsing once. You should also visit your dentist twice a year (every six months).

How does oral hygiene help me?

Oral hygiene can benefit you in many ways. In fact, it can help you have a top-notch oral health. This is because it removes harmful substances, like bacteria and plaque, from your teeth and gums regularly. This can help you prevent major dental issues (like tooth decay and gum disease). It can also help you avoid embarrassing moments of having a food-filled smile and stinky breath.
