Many people have questions about oral hygiene, which leads to improper and ineffective oral hygiene routines. This can result in tooth and gum damage and even dental issues. So, if you have questions about oral hygiene, then our dentist, Dr. Alfred Haeberer, would like to help you find the answers. To do so, he will provide the answers to the following commonly asked questions about oral hygiene in Sterling, Virginia:
Q: What should my oral hygiene routine consist of?
A: Your oral hygiene routine should include brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing your teeth once a day. If you want to go above and beyond, rinse your mouth with mouthwash daily. You should also attend your dental checkups every six months.
Q: Which oral hygiene products should I use?
A: It’s recommended to use a soft-bristled toothbrush (the soft bristles clean the teeth and care for the gums), fluoride toothpaste (the fluoride strengthens the tooth enamel), easy-to-use dental floss (this type of floss can help you avoid injuring your gums), and antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash (antibacterial mouthwash helps prevent gingivitis and fluoride mouthwash helps prevent cavities).
Q: What can oral hygiene do for me?
A: Oral hygiene can help you maintain strong and healthy teeth and gums because it removes the bacteria, plaque and other dangerous substances from your smile regularly. This can help you prevent dental issues.
