Some Key Factors in Maintaining Oral Hygiene

Posted .

Maintaining excellent oral health long term will not only help you enjoy a healthy mouth, but it can also help improve the overall quality of your life. For this reason, our dentist and team offer these key factors to keep in mind when maintaining your health and preventing dental issues.

The quality of the oral hygiene products you use influence the quality of your oral health. Some cosmetic oral hygiene products are involved in marketing claims that mislead you to believe they do more than freshen your breath. We encourage you to find products that have the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance, which is used to identify oral care products that have been thoroughly tested for their safety and effectiveness to ensure the product does what the marketing says it can do.

Brushing and flossing your teeth every day is highly important because it removes plaque and residual food particles. An inconsistent daily oral hygiene routine can lead to tartar hardening at the gum line and promoting gum disease and the development of cavities on multiple teeth.

Your regular dental checkup and cleaning with our team at [oractice_name] are also crucial. During these appointments, we thoroughly clean your teeth and examine your mouth for signs of periodontal disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay.

If you are concerned about your overall oral health, we invite you to contact our office at 281-201-4332 today to schedule a checkup with one of our dentists, Dr. Teresa Cody, Dr. Cashion, Dr. Jieun Chiu or Dr. Dave Chiu. Our team is happy to help you maintain your dental health in Sugar Land, Texas!
