Ace your next check-up

If you’ve ever been to the dentist (we hope you have) you’ve heard it time and time again, “Have you been flossing regularly?” Our hygiene team wants you to know that while whether you answer honestly is up to you, we’re going to know the truth as soon as we get a good look in your mouth anyway, so you may as well fess up. If you’ve been skimping on your oral hygiene routine, you aren’t doing yourself any favors, and will be much more likely to develop tooth decay, gum disease, or other painful and costly dental problems down the road.

Guilt-free Cleanings

While we do stress the importance of good oral home care including regular brushing and flossing, we want you to know that we understand our patients are human. Even we forget to brush and floss sometimes, and that’s ok. Thankfully, our hygiene team is the best in Grandview and will make sure to educate you to make the best choices, and give you a good deep clean that will leave you with that “fresh from the dentist” clean feel.

Professional Advice

  1. Nutrition – Your diet plays a huge part in your oral health; minimize sugar and highly acidic foods and beverages.
  2. Brush – You should brush for two minutes at least twice a day, ideally after eating or drinking. Use an electric toothbrush for the most effective clean (we recommend Sonicare®), and don’t forget to reach all the way to the back, and brush the tongue.
  3. Floss – Flossing is an important step in your oral hygiene routine. You should floss every day, before your nightly brushing to remove plaque between teeth.
  4. Rinse – Rinsing with mouthwash will kill 99% of germs in your mouth that brushing and flossing cannot.
  5. Water – When brushing is not an option, rinsing with water after eating or drinking is a great way to minimize plaque and decay.
