Did you know there are four basic tips you can use to keep your smile healthy? Well, it’s true! Oral health is important. By keeping your smile healthy you can avoid harmful situations that can destroy your smile.

Here at Center For Dental Rehabilitation in Phoenix, Arizona, we care about your oral health and smile. That is why we have put this list of information together, so you can make positive oral health care habits and keep your teeth clean and fresh all year long. This list includes:

1. Brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes a day. By keeping your teeth brushed and clean, you can prevent bacteria, plaque, and tartar from building up and giving you serious oral health problems.
2. Floss your teeth at least once a day. Food particles, plaque, bacteria, and even tartar can build in the hard-to-reach places of your smile between your teeth and along the gumline. That is why it is vital to use floss to remove these elements.
3. Use an effective mouthwash. Mouthwash plays an important role in ridding your mouth of bacteria your toothbrush and floss cannot reach.
4. Visit your dentist, Dr. Maureen Toal at least twice a year. If you keep up with your dental checkups, there is a better chance of stopping a serious problem early before serious risks can apply. Our professional staff can help you reverse any oral health care issue and treat any conditions you may have.

By applying these tips into your life, you can help your dentist keep your smile healthy. Clean teeth and gums can prevent things like cavities, gum disease, tooth loss, and even bone loss. If you still have questions about your oral care, or would like to come in for a dental check-up, please call us today at 602.485.0505. Our professional and friendly staff is always happy to take your call.
