Oral hygiene is the foundation of good dental health! Brushing and flossing regularly is the best way to keep your Midlothian smile healthy and clean. Consider this your personal tutorial on the art of dental hygiene, instructed by Dr. Alex Hawkins and the expert hygienists at Hawkins Family Dentistry. If you have any questions or would like to test your skills in person, feel free to give us a call!
Before we get to talking technique, we need to make sure you have the right tools for the job. You’re going to need a toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, and floss. Pick whatever floss is most comfortable for you and any toothpaste that you like, provided it has fluoride. Mouthwash is not required, but some Midlothian folks really like the extra oral health boost you get from a good swish and gargle.
Dr. Hawkins reminds us to floss before brushing. That way you can ensure that the particles and bacteria unearthed during flossing will be removed during the expert brushing session that follows. Make sure to floss at least once a day.
It’s that time. We’ve talked toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste, so now it’s time to teach the fine folks of Midlothian how to brush like a dentist. Here we go!
If you have questions about any of this information or would like to come in for a professional cleaning, give us a call at Hawkins Family Dentistry today!
