Dental Hygiene Q&A
Tooth decay and gum disease are common and can lead to serious dental issues like receding gums, discolored or weak teeth, and even tooth loss. Adopting good dental hygiene habits is the key to achieving and maintaining a beautifully white smile you can be proud of. The Nuve Dental team offers a full scope of cosmetic and restorative dentistry services to perfect your smile.
Adopting good dental hygiene habits offers you numerous oral health benefits, including:
- Fewer cavities
- Healthier gums
- Lower risk of gum disease
- Whiter teeth
- Stronger teeth
- Lower risk of tooth loss
- Better overall health
Believe it or not, good dental hygiene is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. It helps you avoid costly dental work related to restoring damaged teeth and gums.
Optimal dental hygiene involves at-home care and routine trips to Nuve Dental for professional cleaning. You can reduce your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental complications through:
At-home dental care
Proper at-home oral care significantly reduces your risk of cavities. Brush your teeth at least two times daily using fluoride toothpaste, floss your teeth every day, and choose dental products with the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance.
Drink water containing fluoride, avoid tobacco products and oral piercings, limit sugary foods and drinks, and eat a nutritious diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
Professional dental cleanings
See the Nuve Dental team for routine dental cleanings and exams. During your appointment, the experienced staff cleans your teeth using professional-strength products and special dental tools that offer a deeper clean than what you can achieve with at-home care.
Nuve Dental also offers preventive treatments, such as fluoride treatment and dental sealants, to lower your risk of dental decay. They can treat cavities when they are small to help you avoid extensive dental work.
Everybody is different, but as a rule, schedule a professional dental cleaning and exam every six months. If you have gum disease or another oral health issue, you may require more frequent visits.
Call Nuve Dental at the first sign of tooth discoloration, dental pain, tooth damage, or other unusual symptoms to help you avoid serious oral health complications.
