Preventing Periodontal Disease
The best way to avoid periodontal disease is through preventive care, by maintaining a good oral hygiene routine at home, visiting our dentists regularly for oral health checkups and periodontal exams, and maintaining a healthy, balanced diet. So don’t hesitate to contact iSmile today to learn more about preventing periodontal disease and dental hygiene in Utah and Arizona, and make your appointment with our caring dental professionals.
During your time at our office, our team works hard to improve your oral health. It would be best if you continued taking care of your smile at home through consistent oral hygiene. Good dental hygiene includes many daily habits and practices that help keep your smile healthy and bright. Our dental team recommend that you follow these basic steps to help your smile stay in optimal health:
- Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste that includes fluoride.
- Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
- Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
- Maintain your regular visits with our dentist every six months. We will provide professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to ensure we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments during these visits.
When you visit iSmile, we review your dental hygiene habits with you and offer information on additional steps you can take to improve your oral health further. To learn more about dental hygiene and schedule your next appointment at our office, we welcome you to call iSmile today.
