Maintaining Your Optimal Oral Hygiene
As your go-to Dentist in Langley, we understand that your oral hygiene routine goes part and parcel with a healthy appearance. A mouth that looks and smells healthy, likely means your body is reflective of that same wellness.
Maintaining optimal oral hygiene is, in its simplest form, keeping your teeth clean and free of debris. Adding to this, you should ensure that your gums are pink and do not hurt of bleed when you brush or floss, and that bad breath is not a constant problem (pointing to a condition known as halitosis).
If the contrary is true, and your gums do hurt or bleed while brushing or flossing, and/or you are experiencing persistent bad breath, you should definitely come in to see us. Any of these conditions may indicate a concern.
At Cornerstone Dental, we take pride in helping our patients learn about oral hygiene techniques, and can assist in pointing out areas of your mouth that may require extra attention during brushing and flossing.
The truth about healthy teeth is that not only do they give an individual an overall healthy look, but healthy teeth also allow you to eat and speak properly. Good oral health truly is important to your overall well being.
Daily preventative care, including proper brushing and flossing, will help stop problems before they develop. Maintaining your teeth is much less painful, expensive, and worrisome than treating conditions that have been allowed to progress.
Between your regular visits to our dental centre, we suggest you…
- Brush twice a day and floss daily
- Eat a balanced diet and limit sugary or acidic snacks between meals
Simple suggestions that we find far too few of our patients adhere to, and end up in our dental chair with greater concerns than a simple cleaning.
So before your teeth cause you trouble, come in for a quick visit to our conveniently located dental office in Langley, BC. We will be more than happy to help assess your situation, and ensure your optimal oral health care is addressed!
