If you are wondering how to keep your teeth healthy, Somerville Dental can help! Our dentist, Dr. Asad Chaudhry has the following tips to help you save your teeth from decay, gum disease and a host of other dental problems.
- Brush at least twice a day with a soft bristled toothbrush using small, gentle circles. Be sure to brush the outside, inside and biting surfaces of each tooth.
- To clean between your teeth, floss daily. With a piece of floss (about 18 inches long) use a rocking or “C” motion to gently slide the floss into the space between the your gum tissue and the enamel surface of your tooth. Use a fresh section on each area that you floss and rinse gently afterward.
- Be sure to come in at least twice a year for a dental cleaning and exam, which will help diagnose decay at its earliest and easiest to treat stage.
