Your oral health care is easier than you think. Taking care of your teeth does not need to be a round-the-clock chore but rather a daily exercise with minimal effort intended to strengthen and solidify your oral health care habits as a small part of your life. Even simple tasks such as brushing and flossing a few minutes per day can have resounding success in the battle against tooth decay and gum disease.

Here are some guidelines to consider for optimum oral health:

– Keep your meals well-balanced and nutritious for optimum health.
– Consider using a cleaning product after eating a meal, such as sugarless gum, to wash away harmful bacteria and food particles and to limit the effect of harmful acids on your teeth.
– Avoid chewing or smoking tobacco, and avoid recreational drugs or medications that can cause mouth dryness.
– Limit your intake of foods and snacks that can speed up plaque decay or damage your teeth.
– Avoid snacking all throughout the day and limit any between-meal snacks.
– Make sure to brush your teeth twice daily and floss once daily.
– Visit your dentist regularly at Preston Family Dentistry in Dallas, Texas for your oral exams and professional cleanings.
