Are you 100% certain that you have good oral hygiene? Essentially, your mouth smells, works, and looks healthy if you practice good oral hygiene habits. This means that you have pink gums that don’t bleed or hurt when you brush and floss your teeth, your teeth look healthy and work properly, and your breath smells clean and fresh.

If you experience bleeding gums, aching teeth, or chronic bad breath, visit your dentist at E.John Baron, DDS Inc. in Santa Cruz, CA, as any of these problems might indicate an oral health issue. Dr. John Baron will recommend the most suitable oral hygiene practices for your case and pinpoint areas in your mouth that need additional attention when performing your oral care routine.

What Does a Good Oral Care Routine Look Like?

Maintaining proper oral hygiene is among the most vital things you could do, not only for your gums and teeth but your overall health as well. Aside from helping you feel and look good, healthy gums and teeth can likewise make it easier for you to talk and chew properly. Daily and proper preventive care techniques will help you halt all sorts of oral health problems in their tracks before they even have a chance to develop.

In between routine visits to your Santa Cruz, CA, dentist for cleanings and oral health exams, here are some very simple guidelines that you can follow to significantly lower the risk of developing gum disease, decay, and other conditions:

  • Brush thoroughly at least two times daily and floss every single day
  • Eat a healthy diet and limit your intake of starchy and sugary items.
  • Use a mouthwash with fluoride and/or antibacterial ingredients to help keep gum disease and tooth decay at bay. It’s fine if you use mouthwash immediately after brushing your teeth, but you can also use mouthwash after meals if you can’t brush your teeth.
