Oral care tips:

  • Brush all surfaces of teeth for at least 2 minutes once in the morning and before bedtime
  • Replace toothbrushes as soon as they become worn (many now have a color indicator signaling when it’s time for a new one)
  • Floss between teeth and down along the gum line of each tooth
  • Use a rubber-tipped gum stimulator or interdental cleaner daily
  • Visit the dentist and get a full exam and professional cleaning by a dental hygienist 2 times a year or more depending on your propensity for periodontal disease
  • Have your dentist measure the depth of your gum pockets and have periodic X-rays to determine the health of gums, teeth and bone
  • If you have dental anxiety, know that there are many new strategies that prevent the pain and quell anxiety prior to any oral procedures as well as specialized clinics for the super anxious
  • Avoid sticky foods and frequent snacking to decrease acid load
  •  Don’t smoke or chew tobacco (also increases risk or oral cancer)
