Keeping Your Teeth and Gums Healthy

Keeping Your Teeth and Gums HealthyVisiting our Los Angeles dental exam and cleaning expert regularly is important when it comes to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. However, there are some things you can do at home that will help as well.

Brush and Floss Regularly

To maintain healthy teeth and gums you should be brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice per day. When you brush, use fluoridated toothpaste and rinse with fluoridated mouthwash. Fluoride helps to prevent mineral loss of your tooth. If you have a tendency to over-brush, try an electric toothbrush instead of a manual one. Electric toothbrushes are less likely wear away the enamel in comparison to over-brushing with a manual toothbrush.

Rinse Your Mouth or Chew Gum After Each Meal

IF you can’t brush your teeth after each meal, you should rinse your mouth with an antibacterial rinse or chew a piece of sugar-free gum. Chewing gum also works to keep your teeth healthy because it stimulates saliva production which gets rid of harmful bacteria and neutralizes acids that can wear away the enamel on your teeth.

Know When to See Your Dentist

Regular checkups with our Los Angeles dentist are important, but you also need to know when to see your dentist between regular appointments. If you have unusual sensitivity to hot or cold, loose permanent teeth, excessive bleeding when brushing or flossing or red, tender and swollen gums, you should visit your dentist as soon as possible.
