Teeth Cleaning and Proper Dental Care

Cleaning of Dental Office Teeth

Your dentist or a trained staff member will typically use a rotating toothbrush to wash the plaque off your teeth for a dental office teeth cleaning. Checkout Arbor Oaks Dental for more info. After your teeth have been cleaned, your dentist can floss to remove any potential remaining plaque between your teeth. If needed, a fluoride foam, solution or other applicable method can be applied by your dentist or dental staff member to help protect against cavities and harden your teeth.

At Home, Oral Hygiene

I don’t think it’s possible to go to the dentist to take care of your oral hygiene every day. It would certainly be inconvenient and costly. Also, it just doesn’t sound like a lot of fun.

Here are some ways of keeping your teeth at home strong and safe.

Start by flossing your teeth to eliminate any particles of food and plaque between them that may get trapped. Winding the floss around both your index fingers and softly pressing it between each of your teeth in your mouth is the best way to floss. To bring out some food that may be trapped, make sure to freely move the floss up down and sideways.

Yes, after flossing, you can brush your teeth. Put on a soft toothbrush with a small amount of toothpaste. In a backward and forward circular motion, gently rotate the bristles around your teeth and under your gums. Often, make sure that the top surfaces of your teeth are where you chew. With the same spinning motion, make sure to clean the inside surfaces of your teeth. You should rub your tongue to help with potentially bad breath.
