Southlake, Texas cosmetic and family dentist Dr. Kurt Calender provides a full, detailed breakdown of the best methods of home oral hygiene for the whole family. The two basic fundamentals are, of course, brushing and flossing the teeth regularly and correctly. Many people may not realize there are better ways of brushing and flossing, and better products to choose when shopping, too. The standard bi-annual professional dental cleaning is the best way to remove built-up plaque, tartar and debris and to check for any decay or damage, but excellent home oral care is invaluable in preserving the lifelong health of the teeth and mouth, and by extension, the whole body’s well-being too.
Regular brushing and flossing contribute to the prevention of tooth decay. Decay is a leading cause of tooth loss, which often requires complex, uncomfortable dental work to correct. Tooth decay is the result of acids present in foods and saliva eroding teeth due to incomplete cleaning and care. Proper hygiene also helps prevent periodontal disease, which is a serious condition leading to tooth loss and receding gums and jawbone. Periodontal disease is the result of plaque toxins that can also lead to major health concerns elsewhere in the body. Removal of plaque and tartar from teeth with a toothbrush and dental floss is an easy, effective way to prevent periodontal problems. Brushing and flossing can also prevent embarrassing halitosis, or bad breath, by controlling and eliminating decaying bacteria and acids in the mouth that lead to unpleasant odors. Proper, regular oral hygiene also prevents staining from coffee, wine and smoking, preserving a healthy, beautiful smile for years to come.
Proper brushing should occur twice daily with a soft, rounded-bristle toothbrush. Proper flossing is an excellent way to remove plaque, bacteria and prevent decay in the spaces between teeth and gum pockets, and is an effective way to prevent periodontal disease. Be careful to work floss gently between teeth, toward the gum line, around each tooth, moving the floss up and down several times to remove interdental plaque and debris. Be careful not to pop or pull floss from between teeth in stubborn areas, as this can cut or damage the delicate parts of the gum where bacteria can collect.
