RESOLVE TO PROTECT YOUR ORAL HEALTH

With New Year’s upon us, the time to consider resolutions is here. And what better resolution than a commitment to protecting your oral health?

Small steps can make a huge difference when it comes to enhancing your daily routine. If you are accustomed to brushing morning and night, simply adding a brush after lunch is a great place to start. For optimal results, try brushing after every meal and snack, and don’t forget to floss. Flossing should be done at least once daily, but two to three times a day will significantly reduce tartar buildup below the gum line, which helps prevent gum disease and infection.

Remember, your daily routine is essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums, but is not enough to fully prevent all oral health issues. To bolster your efforts at home, you should visit Beaverton family dentist Dr. Michael Negru every six months for professional cleanings and examinations.

Biannual visits give us an opportunity to remove tartar buildup that may be difficult to remove at home. They also allow Dr. Negru to answer your questions, provide individualized suggestions, and detect early signs of potential oral health problems.

If you are overdue for a dental cleaning and examination, please contact Bright Smile Dental today. We serve Aloha and surrounding Oregon communities from our convenient Beaverton location.
