This spring, why not extend your spring cleaning routine to deal with your oral health? Our O’Fallon dentists are here with some information that will help you refresh your smile, and establish a preventive dental routine…
Regularly scheduled professional dental cleanings allow our team to clear away accumulated plaque and tartar, so that your smile is cleaner, fresher, and healthier. Most of us should be undergoing in-office cleanings every six months or so. Why not schedule your cleaning to coincide with spring cleaning, so that you are prompted to do it every year? Remembering to get it on the books is half of the battle!
You also want to ensure that your at-home cleaning routine is effective and optimized. One simple thing you can do is to swap your aging oral hygiene tools for fresh and new ones. Toothbrush bristles, for example, become less effective after just a couple of months of use. Also, check the expiration dates on any toothpastes and mouth rinses you have in the cabinet. Making this review a part of your annual routine will help you stay on track throughout the year.
While you are evaluating and improving your oral hygiene routine, take a few minutes to set some intentions for your smile in the coming months. Whether you want to improve dental aesthetics and eliminate stains, or strengthen gum health by treating periodontal disease, our dental team is here to help you make a plan that works for your smile and your goals.
As always, our O’Fallon dentists are available to give you any additional information and guidance that you may need. You can reach our team by calling our office, or by using the Contact Us page on our website to submit an inquiry. Now is the time to refocus on your oral hygiene efforts!
