Routine dental checkups aren’t just a suggestion but something everyone needs to do every six months. And if you are someone who is at a high risk for dental problems, you may need to come in more often.
Visiting your Jackson Heights, NY, dentist for preventive care allows us to not just provide your teeth and gums with the thorough cleaning they need to remove plaque and tartar buildup but we can also detect problems early on when they are much simpler to treat and we can provide you with treatments you need to get your oral health back on track.
Keep it Clean
Your at-home oral care routine is extremely important to the health of your teeth and gums. If you aren’t good about brushing and flossing, or your technique isn’t the best, then you may find yourself dealing with cavities and gum disease down the road.
The good news is that cavities and gum disease are preventable with the proper care. This means that it’s up to you to brush your teeth twice a day (in the morning and again at night) and floss once a day. Make sure that you are brushing for at least a solid 2 minutes each time you brush (don’t forget to set a timer!).
What you eat also plays a key role in your oral health. It’s important that your mouth is getting the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. Furthermore, certain things like sugar, starches, sodas, sports drinks and alcohol can greatly increase your chances for cavities. By avoiding these foods and drinks and enjoying a diet rich in lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and dairy, you can nurture a strong, healthy smile.
