Oral Hygiene in Springfield, PA

Obtaining a clean and confident smile is possible with great oral hygiene in Springfield. Together with your dentist, you can establish good dental hygiene habits and enjoy the benefits of a decay-free, sparkling smile.

What Are Oral Hygiene Practices?

Oral hygiene is the process of cleaning and polishing the teeth through professional dental cleanings and a good dental hygiene routine at home. Practicing good hygiene habits is one of the best ways to prevent dental problems like cavities, gum disease, and even more severe conditions like tooth loss. Even if your dental hygiene is not as it should be, our dentists can show you techniques and tricks for improving your oral health. Call us now to get started.

Oral Hygiene Tips for Patients

Taking great care of your teeth is possible with a few small changes. Try these helpful tips from our dentists to improve your oral health:

  • Twice per day, spend two minutes thoroughly cleaning your teeth with a soft- or medium-bristled toothbrush
  • Once per day, use a piece of dental floss to remove trapped debris from between the teeth
  • Avoid overeating sugary treats
  • If you smoke or use tobacco products, try to quit
  • Choose oral health products that contain fluoride
  • Visit our dental office regularly for oral screenings and cleanings

A clean and vibrant smile is possible with proper dental care. Call us today to learn more about oral hygiene in Springfield.

How Can I Have Healthy Teeth?

Your oral hygiene habits play a crucial role in the overall health of your smile. When you avoid the dentist, tooth hygiene problems can turn into more severe dental health issues. Fortunately, many dental hygiene problems can be resolved with a dental cleaning or other treatment. A healthy smile provides a host of benefits, including a reduced risk of tooth loss, dental infection, and inflammation. Call us today to make an appointment with our skilled dentists.

Oral Hygiene for Kids

At our dental office, we offer comprehensive care to people of all ages. Because of this, we understand that parents sometimes struggle when giving oral hygiene instructions to children. Some children are resistant when it comes to brushing their teeth, and others are frightened by a trip to the dentist. Fortunately, many children respond to positive reinforcement when learning about the importance of dental hygiene. Offering your child stickers, tooth-friendly snacks, and colorful dental care products for children can help make the experience fun.

A Good Oral Hygiene Routine

Keeping your smile clean and healthy through regular dental care is the best way to prevent severe dental problems. In addition to seeing a dentist regularly for cleanings, it’s important to brush your teeth twice daily with an appropriately-sized toothbrush. We also strongly recommend that our patients use dental floss each day. Without flossing, whole sides of the teeth are left unclean. If you’re struggling with bad breath, mouthwash can also be used as a part of your dental regimen. Find out more about establishing a dental care routine by giving our office a call.
