Good dental hygiene is essential to maintaining a healthy smile. As part of your oral hygiene routine, we encourage you to:
- Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We recommend that you use a fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush.
- Floss after each meal or at least once a day. The most important time to floss is before going to sleep at night.
- Eat a balanced diet with a limited amount of sugary, sticky, and acidic foods. This helps you maintain optimal oral health and prevent dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
- Visit our dentist at least twice each year for a routine dental cleaning and exam. Routine visits to our office allow Dr. Jessica Gorelik to detect and treat any problems at the earliest possible stage. Professional teeth cleanings, which are more thorough than normal brushing and flossing, also help to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other damaging conditions.
If you have any questions about how you can improve your dental hygiene in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, or if it has been more than six months since you last visited 201 Dental Care, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to helping you improve your oral health!
