Your Dental Care Routine: Keeping Up With The Basics

One thing you know without a doubt is that you’re supposed to be caring for your smile. You are aware that when you have your dental care routine on track that it will help lead to success for oral health that doesn’t falter. However, are you certain about whether you’re doing things correctly? Maybe you’re just sort of winging it and hoping that as long as you’re brushing to some degree and flossing occasionally, things will shake out just fine. As you might have guessed, our Conroe, TX team actually encourages you to keep your routine as consistent as can be! If you’re unsure about what that should entail, we can help!

Your Timing

We remind you that timing plays a serious role in whether or not your dental care routine is providing you with significant protection. If you want your oral health to do well, then you should remember the following about time:

  • You should brush in the morning and at night
  • Brushing sessions need to take two minutes apiece
  • You should floss morning or night
  • Flossing should take as long as is necessary for a thorough job

The Frequency Of Care

When you don’t want to end up needing dental fillings or any other type of repair for your smile, you know that you need to do your best to keep your smile healthy! Though you may be brushing and flossing, we have to ask: Are you doing this with the right frequency? If not, then you may not be getting the most out of your dental hygiene experience! Remember, you need to practice your dental care routine every single day, brushing twice (morning and evening), and flossing once (morning or evening). If you aren’t right on track, remember that only brushing once (or not at all) some days, or skipping flossing, can quickly lead to tartar formation and consequences.

Your Know-How

Do you know how to brush your teeth properly? Do you know how to floss correctly? If you think you do but you don’t have any recollection of having ever received instruction from a dental professional, then now may be the time to come in! Ask us for a review! You may discover your dental care is spot-on or you may discover some areas that require improvement. In either case, it will remove doubt and ensure your oral health is protected.
