What are some good oral care and hygiene recommendations from the team at Gentle Care Dentistry?

Azusa, California, area patients looking to educate themselves on how to maintain healthy smiles can ask about our recommendations and suggestions for good oral hygiene. Dr. Brianne Luu and the team at Gentle Care Dentistry can talk to you about ways to care for both the teeth and gum. They may include any of the following tips:

Oral Care and Hygiene Services in Azusa, CA area
  • Purchase the right toothbrush. Buying a toothbrush can seem like a simple task, but the type of toothbrush you choose can make a big difference in your smile’s health. We recommend opting for a soft-bristled brush with a small head. This will ensure that you are able to reach all areas of your mouth easily and gently clean your teeth without causing any damage to your gum;
  • Use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps strengthen our teeth enamel and protect against decay. When choosing a toothpaste, make sure it contains fluoride to prevent cavities and promote overall oral health;
  • Reduce sugar and acidic food intake. A healthy diet is critical to maintaining good overall health and oral health. Limiting your intake of both sugary and acidic foods can help prevent tooth decay and protect against enamel erosion. Instead, consider nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, and dairy products to keep your teeth strong and healthy;
  • Floss daily. Brushing alone cannot remove all the plaque on the surfaces of the teeth and food particles from between your teeth. That’s why Dr. Brianne Luu stresses the importance of flossing each day to maintain oral health and wellness.
