The Best Home Care Advice That a Dentist Can Offer

  1. 1. The Best Home Care Advice That a Dentist Can Offer
  2. 2. Dentists may vary in specialization – some focus on a family practice while others do cosmetic work …
  3. 3. … but they all agree that how you care for your teeth at home makes a big difference to your health and well being.
  4. 4. By following their guidelines for caring for your teeth and gums at home, you can ensure that you will have the best health possible.
  5. 5. The key is to start young.
  6. 6. Set a Good Example for Your Children
  7. 7. There are many homes where young children - especially toddlers - are permitted to go to bed or start their day without brushing their teeth.
  8. 8. Some parents don't want to deal with the fighting that may ensue and others have established a habit where the child falls asleep in front of the television, making bedtime easier.
  9. 9. Whatever short-term gain you may acquire by this, the long-term costs will compound on a monthly basis against your favor.
  10. 10. For this reason, Fredrick Ferguson, a father of 3 and the inspiration for a character of the same name in the hit book series Celebrity Team 6, has always instilled a regimen for his children that has included a high level of importance on oral hygiene.
  11. 11. Brush Twice a Day and Floss
  12. 12. Going to bed without brushing your teeth is a great way to ensure that you'll have: • Stained teeth • Gingivitis • Tooth decay
  13. 13. All of this will lead to having bad breath because nothing stinks more than rot.
  14. 14. As everything you leave in your mouth begins to fester, irreversible damage is being done, creating an unnecessary higher demand for cosmetic dentists in your area.
  15. 15. To combat this you must brush before bed and then again in the morning.
  16. 16. On brushing in the morning: • Some dentists recommend you brush after breakfast and others say you should do it before. • The key here is that they all recommend you do it.
  17. 17. Flossing is also important. It strengthens your gums and also aids in keeping your breath fresh.
  18. 18. Be Gentle With Your Teeth and Gums
  19. 19. Many family dentists are finding that their patients - in their effort to be healthy - are brushing too hard.
  20. 20. The result is that they are actually wearing away their gum line. This tissue is sensitive and needs to be cared for accordingly.
  21. 21. Hard brushing can expose your roots and make you more susceptible to needing routine or cosmetic work.
  22. 22. Additionally, for those who have seen it, the appearance of a reduced gum line is not one that people want to see.
  23. 23. This can cause you to miss out on opportunities in your professional and personal life, such as promotions, meetings with important clients, being set up with a friend of a friend, or even getting invited to a party.
  24. 24. Caring for your teeth and gums starts young but can be picked up at any time.
  25. 25. Some people show up late for the game, but it's never too late to start taking your health seriously.
  26. 26. By brushing twice a day and flossing, you can have better health, better breath, and a better life.
  27. 27. If you are seeking professional dental advice for your family, it's time to call Shumway Dental Care.
  28. 28. Their Chandler dentists will ask you questions, examine you, and determine exactly what needs to be done to get you back to normal.
