Can I practice preventive dentistry at home?

Brushing your teeth

You should brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Don’t forget to also brush your tongue to remove additional bacteria from your mouth, and remember to replace your toothbrush at least three or four times a year.

Flossing your teeth

Flossing at least one time a day helps remove food particles and debris, helping you avoid the development of bacteria, plaque buildup, and tartar.

Eating a nutritious diet

What you eat can have an impact on your oral health. Limiting your sugar intake, decreasing your carbohydrates, and drinking at least eight glasses of water a day can help protect your teeth and gums. You can also supplement your diet with vitamins.
