Dr. Deore, Dr. Jones, and our dental team stress the importance of practicing proper dental hygiene. Proper dental hygiene practices, paired with regular dental checkups, will help to prevent dental issues like tooth decay. Our dentists and team are proud to educate our patients about dental hygiene in Coppell, Texas.
You should brush your teeth twice daily, once in the morning and once at night. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and a head that is small enough to reach all areas of your mouth. Replace your toothbrush at least every three to four months. We recommend that you use a fluoride toothpaste, as this will provide extra protection against cavities. Brush your teeth with your toothbrush at a 45 degree angle where the teeth meet the gums. Use small, circular movements. Brush all surfaces of your teeth, paying special attention to the front and back teeth.
Floss your teeth at least once a day, using whatever flavor and type of floss you like. Gently move the floss between the teeth. Curve the floss around each tooth and gently slide it beneath the gum line. Move the floss up and down several times to scrape off the plaque.
