Our hygienists at Leaf River Dental know that good oral hygiene habits are important for a healthy smile. Professional cleanings prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health problems. Visit our office to learn more about dental hygiene and how these appointments benefit your smile.
Brush your teeth after each meal, or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that includes fluoride.
Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
Maintain your regular visits to the dentist every six months. During these visits, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments.
