Oral Hygiene in Baltimore, MD

Proper oral hygiene habits can keep your smile healthy and glowing throughout your life. In addition to brushing and flossing at home, visiting a dentist is an important part of good oral hygiene in Baltimore. Professional dental cleanings are the best way to keep your smile free of decay and disease.

What Is Oral Hygiene?

Oral hygiene in Baltimore is the practice of keeping the mouth healthy by cleaning the gums and teeth. Good dental hygiene prevents dental problems like cavities, gum disease, and oral infections by eliminating harmful plaque and tartar. Our experienced dentists are committed to helping patients achieve better hygiene by providing professional cleanings and offering advice about how to best clean teeth at home.

What Are Some Oral Hygiene Tips?

Keeping your teeth and gums clean is possible with regular dental cleanings and excellent home care. Get started today with these useful tips:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily using a medium- or soft-bristle toothbrush that fits your mouth
  • Use floss to clean between teeth every day
  • Limit consumption of sugary foods and beverages
  • Use a fluoride-based toothpaste
  • Avoid cigarettes and other tobacco products
  • Visit our office regularly for professional cleanings

If you have additional questions or require further oral hygiene instructions, please give our office a call.

Why Is an Oral Hygiene Routine Important and What Does It Consist of?

Maintaining good tooth hygiene at home can reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease. Between scheduled dental cleanings, protect your smile by brushing your teeth twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste. Today’s toothbrushes come in many varieties and sizes, and can be electric or manual. If you are unsure of what type of toothbrush to purchase, be sure to ask your dentist. It’s also important to floss between the teeth at least once per day. Give our office a call if you have further questions about keeping your smile clean.

How Can Children Practice Good Dental Habits?

Teaching children the importance of dental hygiene should start at an early age. Regular dental visits should begin at age one. At your child’s first visit, your dentist will evaluate him or her for signs of decay or disease. If your children are nervous or fearful about visiting the dentist, our dentists can give you pointers and demonstrate activities that can make the experience more pleasant. Children often respond to tooth-friendly snacks, activity books, and other tools that encourage good oral health. If you’d like to learn more about children’s dental care, please give us a call.

How Do You Improve Dental Health?

While establishing a good dental hygiene routine at home is important, it’s vital to see a dentist for regular exams and cleanings. Only a professional dental cleaning can protect your teeth and gums against gingivitis, cavities, bad breath, and other oral health problems. If you’re ready to improve your oral health, give our office a call today to get started.
