Welcome to our blog and thanks for stopping by. David A. Rice, DDS wants to offer you some easy hints when caring for your teeth.
For Confident Smiles
1.Do… remember you are just wiping the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the correct angle can gently wipe the bacteria away. Once plaque has settled into tartar, no amount of scrubbing at home can responsibly remove it.
Don’t… scrub your teeth and gums until your gums recede and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want exposed.
2.Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Proper brushing and regular flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.
Don’t… wait to see your a dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity or mouth sores.
3.Do… create a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves ample time to spend a full two minutes gently cleaning all the nooks and crannies of your delicate mouth.
Don’t… forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can disrupt a good routine.
4.Do… make regular dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional. Call David A. Rice, DDS to set up your initial consultation today. 847-741-2353 We’ve got the phones ready!
