Dental Hygiene

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!
    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!
    Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
  • Eat Well!
    Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
  • Visit Us!
    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.
