Proper maintenance of your teeth and regular visits to the dentist clinic will not only ensure a beautiful, healthy smile, but will contribute to your overall health and wellbeing.
Dr. Nicholas Ng and his team of certified professionals specialize in family, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. The friendly dental team values long term relationships with their patients, and in respect to their values, they will take the time to get to know you and your family. Aside from visiting the Mint Dental team regularly, you should also practice good oral health care at home. As a strong advocate for preventative oral care, Dr. Ng places significant emphasis on dental education for his patients. He’s always eager to offer brushing tips, natural care remedies, and preventative measures to ensure that your mouth remains in the best possible condition. On behalf of Dr. Ng and his team of dental technicians, here are a few tips to ensure complete care for your teeth:
1) Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush to remove decay-causing plaque. Maintaining a 45 degree angle with your brush, move it back and forth in gentle, tooth-wide strokes. Take your time while brushing; each session should be two to three minutes in length to ensure a thorough cleaning.
2) Flossing is key to your overall oral health. Plaque can build up in between your teeth and lead to gum disease, which is one of the main causes of tooth decay and tooth loss. Use floss to clean between your teeth at least once a day.
3) Using mouthwash on a daily basis can boost your oral health care from good to great. Gargling with mouthwash after brushing can help remove plaque, strengthen your teeth, and provide that extra, minty-fresh breath you crave.
