Raise Your Dental IQ

Raise Your Dental IQ

In this message from The Richardson Dentist, we remindyou that small things can raise your Dental IQ and benefit your smile. One simple lesson involves bacteria – and everyone’s mouth has a lot of it.

But, don’t worry, bacteria per se isn’t the problem. It’s the balance of bacteria that’s important. This is where brushing and flossing come into play. Brush and floss properly each day and you will have a better chance of keeping the appropriate balance.

This is not pleasant to think about, but make sure you store your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible. Also, close the lid of the toilet before you flush.

Make sure to wash your hands before you brush and floss. No exceptions!

When it comes to your toothbrush, don’t get sentimental. The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three to four months. If you can avoid the unhealthy balance of bacteria in your mouth, you can avoid gum disease, cavities, as well as bad breath.

If your teeth are sensitive, avoid rinsing them after you brush. The fluoride in the toothpaste can help remineralize your enamel. If you go to bed with some toothpaste left on your teeth, it has a chance to go to work.

At The Richardson Dentist, we want all of our patients to enjoy excellent dental health. Our services include general and restorative dentistry. Call us to schedule your next checkup today!
