The hygienists at Alexis Dental and Madison Dental perform teeth cleanings, and can help show your family sound dental hygiene routines.
Our team of hygienists provide routine hygiene services. Routine cleaning can help to prevent the onset of numerous oral diseases.
To properly floss, wind the floss around both of your index fingers and push it between each of your teeth in your mouth. Make sure to freely move the floss upwards, downwards and even sideways to remove any food particles or plaque that may be lodged between your teeth or under the gums.
You should hold the brush at a 45-degree angle to your teeth. Rotate the bristles across your teeth and under your gums with a backward and forward motion. Be sure to also get the top surfaces of your teeth where you bite or chew on food.
Your tongue can also be cleaned with your toothbrush, which will help reduce bad breath. Lastly it is important to brush the inside surfaces of your teeth with the same rotating motion.
When brushing, it is important to use toothpaste that contains fluoride. Fluoride hardens the enamel of your teeth, which will prevent cavities and also reduce bacteria in your mouth. It can also reverse the formation of smaller cavities.
Lastly, antibacterial rinses can also help reduce bacteria in the mouth. Please check with your dentist or dental hygienist if you have any additional questions about hygiene.
