General Dental Care
The key to having a bright and healthy smile throughout adulthood is practicing a proper oral hygiene routine. In addition to tooth decay in adults, gum disease, which can cause serious problems, can also be seen. Throughout adulthood, it is essential that you continue to do the following:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste to remove plaque, a sticky layer that builds up on your teeth and is the main cause of tooth decay and gingivitis.
- Floss your teeth once a day to remove plaque between the teeth or below the gum line before it can harden and turn into tartar. Once calculus is formed, its cleaning can only be done by your dentist with professional dental cleaning.
- Limit sugary and starchy foods and sticky snacks, especially between meals. The more often you snack between meals, the more you give bacteria the opportunity to create acids that will attack your tooth enamel.
- Visit your dentist regularly for professional dental cleanings and checkups.
