Are you interested in taking care of your teeth, so they last your entire lifetime? Did you know, with proper oral hygiene care your teeth could last your whole life? Yes, it’s true! Oral hygiene plays an essential role in the health and strength of your teeth.

To help you with understanding the best way to care for your teeth, our dentists at Cox and Manegold Dentistry in West Chester, Ohio, have provided you with this fundamental insight:

Brush your teeth:
It is important to remember to brush your teeth for two minutes a day, twice a day. Brushing your teeth daily removes bacteria and plaque from your smile. Plaque generates cavities and leads to gum disease putting your oral health at risk.

Floss daily:
Always remember to floss your teeth at least once a day. Flossing your teeth goes hand-in-hand with brushing and is critical to do because it cleans your teeth in areas where your toothbrush fails. Floss goes between your teeth and deep along your gumline to remove the plaque that could be hiding.

Visit your dentist:
Visiting your dentist frequently is indispensable to keeping your oral health in excellent health. Your dentist will be able to check for cavities or gum disease and correct any oral health complications that may arise.

As you can see, there are ways to help your teeth stay healthy through the years.
