Dental Tips for Every Adult

Daily oral hygeine will prevent gum disease and tooth decay.

Daily oral hygeine will prevent gum disease and tooth decay.

We could all use a few reminders when it comes to our dental health as adults. These basic tips are simple but useful, and can prevent serious oral problems:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste. 
  • Floss once a day.
  • Choose an ADA-accepted toothbrush that has polished bristles because they are less likely to injure gum tissue.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a size and shape that allows you to reach all tooth surfaces.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles become worn or frayed.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and this is especially true when it come to oral health! You can avoid gum disease and tooth decay with good, daily oral hygeine.
