At Country Club Dental, we would much rather prevent dental problems than fix them. We strive to provide quality preventive care so your smile stays free from damaging conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease. One of the greatest ways to keep your smile healthy and strong is to practice good dental hygiene at home. This requires daily efforts; our team encourages you to follow these simple steps to maintain good dental health:
- Brush your teeth at least twice each day. Even better is to brush your teeth after each meal. We recommend that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that contains fluoride.
- Floss your teeth at least once every day. You may wish to floss more often, such as after each meal, but the most important time to floss is before going to sleep at night.
- Eat a balanced diet with a restricted amount of sugary and acidic foods, as these can lead to tooth decay.
Our dentists may recommend other dental health products for you, such as mouthwash, based on your individual oral health and dental needs. We invite you to call or visit our office today to learn more about dental hygiene in Cameron Park, California, and to set up your family’s next appointment with Drs. Sonny and Fara Afshar.
