5 Ways to Improve Your Dental Care Habits

We all know the basics of dental care, but not everyone follows them due to lack of time or energy. Find the best dentist in Manassas and learn some fast and easy hygiene hints to have a better smile.

1.    Find the Best Dentist and Visit Regularly

Nearly half of all U.S. adults skip going to the dentist due to finances, fears, or forgetfulness. But the American Dental Association advises seeing an affordable dentist twice a year to detect major dental problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or oral cancer. Treating problems early is much more affordable and much less painful that catching them at a later stage. That’s why you need to find the best dentist for you and make sure to make your appointments.

2.    Brush Thoroughly

Many people don’t brush enough or they brush incorrectly, which makes their dental care efforts far less effective. Dentists recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day, holding the brush at a 45-degree angle, directed toward the gum line, and brushing gently in circular motions for approximately two minutes. You must brush gently to avoid doing any dental damage.

3.    Use a Soft-Bristled Brush

To ensure that you don’t damage your tooth enamel and cause gums to recede, choose a toothbrush with soft bristles. Replace your toothbrush every two to three months because brushes become worn over time, which reduces their cleaning ability.

4.    Floss Every Day

Flossing keeps teeth and gums healthy, so it’s a dental care must, but many people fail to floss properly. Wind 18 inches of floss around your index fingers, holding about two inches between your fingers to use. Hold the floss closely against the tooth, gliding it over both sides of the tooth to remove any food particles and plaque. Then, unroll a fresh section of floss and repeat for each tooth.

5.    Stop Drinking Soda

There are acids in carbonated sodas that erode tooth enamel and make it softer and less resistant to tooth decay. While drinking an occasional soda is all right, having too many will cause many problems and lead to too many visits to an affordable dentist. Try to limit your intake and switch to water, adding flavor with fruit or mint leaves.
