As you experience this feeling of care and peace in our office, we hope that that feeling will stay with you long after you leave. It is our hope that you’ll feel a greater need to really care for your teeth and do those things that will truly make them last as long as possible. It’s truly our hope that by taking the best care of your teeth as possible, you’ll rarely need work beyond the routine checkup and cleaning. A great cosmetic dentist can be needed when there are needs that can only be addressed by an expert, but lots of people are able to maintain a beautiful healthy smile for many many years before they have to resort to extensive cosmetic repair of their teeth.

Here are a few essentials to make sure your teeth are well taken care of and will be properly maintained:

1. Always floss once a day

We might as well start with the one that is most often overlooked. Why floss? Well, if you think about it, it really only takes less than a minute usually but the effects are very far reaching. Every time you floss you rid your teeth of so much that can cause tooth decay. Don’t fall into the trap of sticking to brushing while neglecting this crucial first step. You have plaque that builds up on and between your teeth every day, so don’t let it accumulate over time. Your teeth will thank you for it. Cosmetic dentists see too many patients with advanced tooth decay or problems that could have been easily prevented with this one crucial habit.

2. Brush thoroughly

You should use a soft-bristled brush and you should brush very thoroughly. A great rule of thumb is to try to brush for the length of a song (about 3 minutes). You could try brushing with the radio on and just keep going from the beginning to the end of a song. Again, this will help you avoid the more drastic cosmetic dental repair that can result from bad habits with dental hygiene.

3. Keep hygiene products at work

Chances are you’re much more likely to take advantage of great hygiene products even during the day if you bring them with you to work. There is a great selection of travel size toothpaste, floss, and other dental necessities that you can have with you when you’re away from home.
