Oral Hygiene in Baltimore, MD

Practicing good dental hygiene habits can set the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth. If you wish to obtain a clean and dazzling smile, it may be time to visit a dentist for oral hygiene in Baltimore.

What Does Oral Hygiene Entail?

The exercise of maintaining cleanliness of the teeth and gums through home care and routine dental cleanings is known as oral hygiene. When tooth hygiene is neglected, plaque and other debris can build up in the mouth and cause dental health problems. Seeing a dentist regularly is the best way to prevent dental hygiene-related problems, which include cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath. Give our office a call to learn more or to set up an appointment.

Daily Tips for a Healthy Smile

A sparkling smile begins with proper home care. Follow these oral hygiene tips for clean teeth and fresh breath:

  • Clean each quadrant of your mouth twice daily using a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush
  • Use dental floss each day, which removes stuck food and other debris from between the teeth
  • Don’t over-consume sugary foods and beverages
  • Avoid using tobacco products
  • Choose toothpastes and mouthwashes that contain fluoride

While these tips can help you get on the right track toward a healthy smile, they’re no replacement for regular dental care. Call us now to book your dental cleaning.

Why Should You Maintain Healthy Teeth?

Seeing a dentist regularly for routine exams and cleanings is the best way to prevent tooth decay, cavities, and other issues related to oral hygiene in Baltimore. Your dentist can identify and treat dental hygiene problems before they cause further damage to your smile. Good oral health provides many benefits to your entire body, reducing the risk of infection, chronic inflammation, and tooth loss. Protect your smile and your health – give us a call today to schedule an exam and cleaning.

How Can Teach My Child About Oral Hygiene?

Most children are unable to fully care for their teeth by themselves until approximately age six – and teaching children about oral hygiene isn’t always an easy task. If your child is struggling to learn about the importance of dental hygiene, there are techniques parents can use to make the experience more pleasant. Using dental-themed coloring sheets, stickers, and other items as positive reinforcement tools often works well with children. Call our office if you have questions about teaching good hygiene habits to kids.

How Do I Practice a Good Dental Hygiene Routine?

In addition to visiting our office regularly for routine exams and cleanings, it’s important to practice good dental hygiene habits at home. The first step is to select a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush that fits inside your mouth easily. Gently scrub each side of your teeth twice daily for about two minutes. After brushing, use a piece of dental floss to remove stubborn food particles and other debris from between the teeth. Mouthwash can also be used during your dental care routine, if desired. If you have further questions about these oral hygiene instructions or need to schedule a dentist appointment, please call our office.
