Welcome to the Advanced Dental blog!
This platform is part of our community education program. As such, we hope you will find lots of helpful information. After all, we all want the same things when it comes to oral health: a clean mouth, and a great looking smile!
But these things take a fair amount of work to maintain. And there are so many obstacles that can get in the way. The good news is that, if you are in the Las Cruces, New Mexico area, you can count on us to help you stay on track with our wide array of dental solutions. That said, preventive dentistry really begins at home and requires diligence on your part.
As such, we’ve compiled a few tips for keeping a gorgeous grin all through life. Keep reading, and then get in-touch to schedule your next appointment! You’ll be glad that you did!
Brush Like You Mean It
You only get one set of permanent teeth, so you will want to do everything in your power to hold on to them. And this really is the least you can do! Brushing your teeth is your first line of defense against bacteria, disease, and decay! Our friends over at the American Dental Association think that you should brush twice a day, and for two minutes at a stretch. We can’t argue with that!
Flossing Takes It Further
You may not like to admit it, and you probably don’t like to do it, but you must keep in mind that flossing your teeth is every bit as important as brushing. That’s because dental floss allows you to reach harder to get to areas of your mouth where tartar, plaque, food particles, and the like are waiting to cause trouble for you.
Rinse With Fluoride
This is an easy add-on to your daily routine. Why bother? Because mouthwash helps reduce bacteria levels and fights off the decay that can lead to tooth loss. Fluoride rinses do the most good for your mouth.
See The Dentist Every Six Months
As your partner in oral health, it is important that we have a look around your mouth every 3-6 months. Our professional cleanings go the extra mile towards keeping your mouth clean. And our in-depth exams can let us know what needs to be attended to sooner than later. Trust us, by addressing any issues early, you’ll be saving yourself pain and expense down the road. Nobody wants to have to deal with cavities, gum disease, or cancer once these issues have progressed to the latter stages.
