Plaque ControlThe ADA recommends the following for good oral hygiene:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Replace your toothbrush every three or four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
- Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Tooth decay–causing bacteria still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. This helps remove the sticky film on teeth called plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
- Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
- Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
Caring for Sensitive TeethSometimes after dental treatment, teeth are sensitive to hot and cold. This should not last long. However, if your teeth are especially sensitive, please be sure to call the office for further investigation.
Choosing Oral Hygiene ProductsThere are so many products on the market it can become confusing and choosing between all the products can be difficult. Your periodontist is the best person to help you select the right products that are best for you.
Professional CleaningDaily brushing and flossing will keep dental calculus to a minimum, but a professional cleaning will remove calculus in places your toothbrush and floss have missed. Visiting your periodontist, plays an important part of your program to control gum disease
