Our dentist and team in Maumee and Toledo, Ohio, are firm believers that proper dental hygiene is the foundation for maintaining a healthy smile. Implementing effective oral care habits at home and partnering with Dr. Tyler Morehart can significantly contribute to your overall oral health. Here are some valuable dental hygiene tips to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health.

Dental Hygiene Tips:

  • Brush thoroughly: Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss daily: Clean between your teeth and along the gumline using dental floss or interdental cleaners.
  • Limit sugary foods and drinks: Cut back on your consumption of sugary snacks, sodas and juices, as they can contribute to tooth decay.
  • Visit our office regularly: Schedule dental check-ups and cleanings every six months to detect and prevent dental problems.
  • Use mouthwash: Consider using an antiseptic mouthwash to freshen breath and reduce bacteria.
  • Stay away from tobacco: Avoid tobacco products, as they can lead to gum disease, oral cancer and other oral health issues.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink water throughout the day to help rinse away food particles and promote saliva production.
  • Consume a balanced diet: Eat a nutritious diet that includes fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and dairy products to support healthy teeth and gums.

By following these dental hygiene tips, you can take proactive steps towards achieving and maintaining optimal oral health. Remember, in addition to maintaining good oral care habits at home, regular visits to our office are essential.
