The best way to remove plaque from teeth is getting a routine teeth cleaning in Bonita Springs, FL every six months. Doing this, combined with practicing excellent oral hygiene at home, can keep cavities, gum disease, and other issues at bay.
Dr. Michael Gostigian, DMD recommends doing the following to keep your smile healthy and clean:
Brush your teeth at least twice every day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and ADA-approved fluoride toothpaste.
Floss between your teeth at least once every day to remove plaque from where your toothbrush can’t reach.
Rinse with antiseptic mouthwash or another type of mouthwash as recommended by your dentist.
Avoid consuming foods and drinks high in sugar and acid, as these can lead to cavities.
Smoking and using tobacco products can cause plaque buildup, so avoid partaking in these activities. However, if you do smoke or use tobacco, brush and floss immediately after use.
Receive professional dental cleanings every six months to remove all the plaque and tartar you can’t reach at home with normal brushing and flossing. A professional dental cleaning is the only way to thoroughly remove plaque and tartar from your teeth.
During teeth cleanings at Bonita Grande Dental, we use specialized instruments to thoroughly and gently clean your teeth and gums, including all of the nooks and crannies you can’t reach on your own at home. Your dentist also checks for any changes in your oral health and signs of issues, like decay and gum disease.
