Oral Hygiene Tips

At Baus Family Dentistry, we believe there are four basic rules to follow when it comes to your oral hygiene: Brushing, flossing, diet control, and visiting your dentist at least twice a year. The best way to ensure a clean and healthy smile is with brushing and flossing. Food particles can accumulate on teeth and eventually turn into plaque. The bacteria that results from this accumulation can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss.

Practicing good dental hygiene avoids unhealthy teeth and costly treatment in the long run. In addition to regular dental visits, diet control and fluoride treatments, adults and kids should maintain a good brushing and flossing routine. Here are our suggestions for better at home techniques:





You should visit your dentist twice a year, every six months. In order to maintain a healthy smile, it is vital to have professional cleanings and regular check ups. Your dentist will examine your teeth and provide an evaluation of existing dental problems and proposed treatment. If you have a dental emergency, you should call your dentist immediately.
