Costa Dentistry’s Practical Tips for Oral Hygiene

  • Routine Brushing and Flossing: Lay the groundwork for a healthy smile by clearing away food particles and bacterial plaque by brushing, at least twice a day, and flossing once daily. Opt for a toothpaste that contains fluoride to helps fortify tooth enamel and thwart cavities.
  • Regular Dental Check-ups: Schedule and attend biannual dental check-ups. These routine visits with our dedicated dental team are crucial for detecting developing issues early and preventing more severe complications.
  • Revamp Your Oral Care Regimen: Upgrade to an electric toothbrush for more effective plaque removal. Incorporate an antimicrobial mouthwash into your daily routine to combat bacteria and promote better gum health.
  • Timely Replacement of Toothbrush: Aim to replace your toothbrush every three to four months (or sooner if the bristles show signs of fraying and losing their shape). A fresh toothbrush ensures the most effective day-to-day cleaning.
  • Kick the Habit, Quit Smoking: If you’re a smoker, why not make quitting a top priority this year? Smoking not only stains your teeth but also escalates the risk of gum disease and oral cancer, both of which are often preventable.
