Improper at-home oral care can lead to problems like gingivitis, tooth decay, periodontal disease, and tooth loss. Fortunately, you can prevent all of these issues by maintaining a proper at-home oral care routine. You’ll find Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, and he and his team can help you remain in top oral health.

Tips for Proper At-Home Oral Care

By using the following practices, you can ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy:

  • Brush at least twice a day: Don’t forget to brush before you go to bed. This will remove the bacteria and plaque and preventing from building up while you sleep.
  • Brush correctly: Brushing should take two full minutes, and to properly perform this action, hold your brush at a 45-degree angle and brush with small circular motions.
  • Clean your tongue: Use a tongue scraper or the bristles of your brush to gently remove the bacteria from your tongue. This will help freshen your breath and keep bacteria at bay.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste: Using a toothpaste with fluoride will strengthen your teeth’s defense against tooth decay by eliminating bacteria and strengthening the surface of your teeth.
  • Floss daily: Even though you brush twice each day, you still need to floss daily. This removes particles of food that are trapped between your teeth and helps reduce plaque build-up. Flossing once a day will do the trick.
  • Rinse with mouthwash: Mouthwash doesn’t only make your breath fresh, it also reduces the amount of acid in your mouth and kills bacteria. Your dentist can recommend the best mouthwash for your needs.
  • Visit your dentist: Even if you’re using best practices at home, you still need to visit your dentist twice a year for a check-up and professional cleaning.
