What your dentist in White Lake wants you to knoworal hygiene

When you think about your general health, don’t forget the importance of your dental health. The good news is a healthy dental regimen should take only a few minutes each day. A healthy dental regimen can protect you from heart disease, endocarditis, diabetes, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. David Campbell in White Lake, MI, wants to share the facts about how you can develop a healthy dental regimen.

The goal of a healthy dental regimen is to remove plaque from your teeth, thoroughly and regularly. Plaque is composed of millions of microscopic bacteria that produce toxins. These toxins cause inflammation and infection in your gums, infection in the bone that supports your teeth and decay in your teeth. When you remove the plaque, you help to ensure your healthy smile for life.

Following a healthy dental regimen is quick and easy. Remember to:

Brush your teeth after each meal and before you go to bed. Remember to use a soft toothbrush because hard toothbrushes can cause receding gums, tooth abrasion and make your teeth sensitive. Brush in a gentle circular motion along the gumline and all the surfaces of your teeth. Sonic or electric toothbrushes are also good choices, especially if you have arthritis or dexterity issues.

Floss at least once each day, using a single piece of floss. Wrap the floss around each tooth as you floss, to ensure you are reaching difficult access areas in between teeth. Floss picks are a good choice for children or if you have dexterity issues.

Don’t forget to schedule a dental examination and x-rays at least once each year. Many dental issues start out small and develop into major problems later on. Dr. Campbell wants to make sure your dental issues stay small.

Professional dental cleanings by a hygienist should be done at least every 6 months, more frequently if you have periodontal disease. Your dental hygienist can clean areas which you can’t reach with normal brushing and flossing.

A healthy dental regimen will keep your smile looking great, and help ensure your good health. Get started on your good dental regimen by calling Dr. Campbell in White Lake, MI. Protect your dental health by calling today!
