Oral hygiene and dental care create not just a healthy smile, but a healthy body as well. At Thirty Two & You, we help patients maintain great dental hygiene, and have provided useful tips here as well.
Tips For Healthy Teeth
Every individual will have different dental needs, based on a case-by-case consideration. In most instances, there are five common steps that our patients can take in order to maintain a healthy mouth and body:
- Floss daily and brush your teeth twice per day with an electric toothbrush.
- Visit your dentist at least twice a year for professional teeth cleaning.
- Maintain good health with proper nutrition.
- Exercise regularly.
- Avoid chewing and smoking tobacco.
How We Maintain Your Oral Health
At Thirty Two & You, we take dental care and check-ups one step further. With each patient visit, we also complete an oral cancer screening. An oral cancer screening involves both a visual exam and physical palpation of the head and neck tissue. This simple screening aids in the early detection of oral cancer.
At each visit, we also provide oral hygiene instruction and coach our patients on how to maintain their dental health so they don't have issues with gum disease or decay. We also educate patients on dietary choices so that they can maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime.
