Home care plays a major role in your dental health. One of the goals at Carolina Dentistry at the StateLine is to educate our patients so they can get the most out of it.
Not only is the amount of time spent on your dental home care important but the ability to do those tasks efficiently is even more important.
How do you get the most out of your home care?
-Set a schedule
If you brush and floss at the same time each day you are more likely to be successful. Having a routine is important.
-Get a toothbrush you like
Find a toothbrush that fits easily in your hand and allows you to comfortably brush your most back teeth.
-Don’t forget about your tongue
A tongue scraper helps removed buildup on the surface of the tongue. The tongue is where the microorganisms that cause bad breath hide. So, paying attention to the tongue is a way to fight against bad breath.
-Talk to your dental provider
Your dental provider may have specific recommendations for products that can help you get the most out of your home care. Have a question about your this, just ask us at your next routine dental visit.
