Are you ready to find out how your oral care routine measures up?

Oral Hygiene

 

Did you know that dental issues such as cavities and gum disease, which affect millions of Americans, could be prevented with the proper dental care? The dental care you perform each and every day can greatly impact your oral health. Our Nashua, NH, dentists Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta want to make sure you understand how to care for your teeth and gums to prevent problems from happening to you.

Brush and Floss Every Day

You can’t play fast and loose with this rule if you want to maintain a healthy smile. Brushing and flossing regularly is crucial to reducing plaque and tartar buildup, the two reasons why people develop cavities and gum disease. Make sure you are brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily. Brush for at least two minutes, making sure that you are hitting every surface of your teeth.

Stay Away from Sugar

Do you know how much sugar you are consuming in a day? If you were to check the labels of the foods and drinks you are enjoying each and every day you might be surprised to discover that they contain quite a bit of sugar. Plus, if you can’t seem to wean yourself off sodas or sports drinks then you could be putting your smile at serious risk for cavities. Reduce your sugar intake to protect your teeth.

Stay Hydrated

Instead of drinking soda what you should be enjoying is water. Okay, so it’s not as fun as drinking a sweet soft drink but it will keep your teeth and gums healthy and reduce plaque buildup. Plus, you’ll be amazed at the wonderful long-term health benefits of drinking enough water every day.

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Everyone should visit their Nashua, NH, general dentist every six months, even if there aren’t any issues going on. Some dental problems can be present and never manifest symptoms, so the only way to detect these problems as soon as possible when they are easier to treat is to come in for a routine checkup and cleaning. Plus, our cleanings can remove plaque and tartar buildup to reduce your risk of developing problems in the future. Preventive dentistry could actually save you money in the long run.

Nashua Smile Makers is dedicated to keeping your smile healthy. We know you are, too! So, let our Nashua, NH, family dentists help you maintain that beautiful smile by coming in twice a year for your dental cleaning.
