North Shore Dentists & Orthodontists
Maintaining good oral hygiene is important for healthy teeth and gums, and for overall wellbeing
Good oral hygiene includes daily preventative oral care and regular dental visits to help prevent tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems.
Your daily home oral care should include:
Brushing teeth thoroughly twice daily for at least two minutes with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste that contains fluoride
Flossing teeth at least once daily to remove food particles from teeth and gums
Eating a balanced diet and limiting sugary and starchy snacks between meals
