Habits to Develop at Home for Better Dental Visits

Close up flossing

While routine dental visits are an essential part of maintaining your oral health and wellness, the things you do in between dental cleanings are just as important. You can help protect your teeth at home by brushing at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, and taking the time to brush each side of every tooth while holding the toothbrush to a 45 degree angle to your gum line.

It is also important to floss your teeth once per day to remove food debris and plaque buildup left behind by your toothbrush. You may consider using mouthwash to rinse after brushing and flossing—however, individuals with sensitive teeth or dry mouth may consider using an alcohol-free mouthwash. Another way to boost your oral health at home is to eat a well-balanced diet. This includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and low-fat or non-fat dairy items.
