Beautiful Teeth Begin with Diligent Dental Hygiene Care

Many dental health problems can be avoided with good oral care. By establishing good oral care habits from the time you are small, you increase your chances of having beautiful, healthy teeth when you’re older. At Brampton Dental Arts, we offer quality dental hygiene services designed to protect and preserve tooth and gum health. When you combine professional dental services with good oral care habits at home, you can’t help but enjoy the benefits of stronger, healthier, more attractive teeth.

Dental Care Habits Worth Cultivating for a Beautiful Smile

Tooth health isn’t guaranteed. Poor oral care can lead to all kinds of problems ranging from cavities to periodontal disease. Irregular visits to your dentist will only make matters worse, as there’s no one to monitor your oral health. As a result, you may not know you have dental issues until extensive tooth or gum damage has been done.

By cultivating good oral care habits, you can protect the integrity of your teeth to avoid premature tooth loss. Your Brampton dentist, Dr. Azeem Sheikh, recommends making the following habits a regular part of your dental hygiene care:

  • Brushing properly twice daily
  • Flossing daily
  • Scheduling bi-annual dental exams and cleanings
  • Limiting sugary drinks and sweets
  • Eating a healthy diet that sustains tooth health

Brushing & Flossing

Brushing and flossing are fundamental practices for keeping your teeth healthy and clean. For greater effectiveness, it’s important to use the right brushing technique. Rather than using a “sawing” back and forth motion, your teeth should be brushed with small, circular motions for at least two minutes. Using a toothbrush with soft bristles will protect the enamel of your teeth, and fluoride toothpaste provides extra protection against cavities. Flossing removes food particles between teeth to reduce plaque and bacteria buildup that can lead to decay and gum disease.

Dental Exams & Cleanings

Bi-annual dental exams and cleanings are a must if you want to maintain good oral health. During a dental exam, Dr. Sheikh will examine your teeth for signs of decay, infection, or gum disease. Catching and treating these problems early can preserve tooth and gum health. Routine cleaning will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth to prevent cavities and gum disease.

Healthy Diet

Equally as necessary is adopting a healthy diet that limits sugary drinks and sweets since these contribute to tooth decay and sickly teeth. A nutritious diet rich in vitamins and minerals that promote tooth health will help you maintain an attractive, healthy smile year after year. Water makes an excellent replacement for sugary drinks as it rinses your mouth of food particles between your teeth and dilutes acids that can lead to tooth decay.

Considering all that you stand to gain from good oral hygiene, it only makes sense to be diligent in the care of your teeth. A beautiful smile makes dental hygiene care well worth the effort. To schedule a dental exam and cleaning at Brampton Dental Arts in Brampton, contact us at (905) 581-3726.
