The importance of oral health cannot be overstated. Your teeth and gums aren’t just something to maintain for appearances; they impact your overall health too. At Dr. Bostani’s Advanced Dental, we have the experience and tools to help you make sure that your oral wellbeing is in tip-top shape!
First, a solid dental hygiene routine is vital for ensuring your oral health.
A healthy routine starts with brushing 30 minutes after every meal for about two minutes. Using a soft bristle brush, be sure to avoid brushing too harshly as this can actually cause more harm than good.
Flossing regularly and using mouth wash can also help clean hard-to-reach areas in between your teeth as well as the back of your mouth. For the best results, wait 30 minutes after brushing your teeth to use a mouth wash. This gives your teeth time to absorb the most beneficial properties of your toothpaste.
If you notice your gums are bleeding whenever you brush or floss, you may be doing so too hard—or you could be suffering from the early symptoms of an oral ailment. In either case, it might be a good idea to check in with our dentist to make sure everything is in order.
Just as you might bring your car to a shop for an oil change, you should periodically visit your dentist for a checkup. Even if you feel completely fine, quiet dangers may be lurking just around the corner. A dentist like Dr. Bostani can help spot potential ailments before they have a chance to develop into something serious that’s painful and costly to treat.
Visiting Dr. Bostani twice a year for a checkup is the best way to ensure that your oral health is up to par. For more information, simply give us a call at the number on your screen or visit our contact page.
