Oral hygiene is the foundation of good dental health. Brushing and flossing regularly is the best way to keep your smile healthy and clean. Consider this your personal cleaning tutorial on the art of dental hygiene, instructed by Salt Lake City dentists Dr. Thomas Brickey and Dr. Laura Provine and the skillful hygienists at Natural Smiles Dentistry.
Before we talk technique, we need to make sure you have the right tools for the job. You’re going to need a toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, and floss. Pick whatever floss is most comfortable for you and any toothpaste that you like, provided it has fluoride. Mouthwash is not required, but some people really like the extra health boost you get from a good swish and gargle.
Natural Smiles Dentistry reminds us to floss before brushing. That way you can ensure that the particles and bacteria unearthed during flossing will be removed during the expert brushing session that follows. Make sure to floss at least once a day.
We’ve talked toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste, so now it’s time to teach the fine folks of Salt Lake City how to brush like a dentist. Here we go!
