Your dentist, Dr. James C. Ma, strongly recommends keeping up on your oral hygiene. Doing so is one of the best ways you can achieve strong and healthy teeth and gums. Having a top-notch smile not only helps you look and feel good, but it also helps you eat, talk, and even have a good overall health. This is why it’s best to practice good oral hygiene regularly.

In order to practice good oral hygiene, you need to brush your teeth twice a day (with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste), floss your teeth once a day (make sure to be gentle along the gumline), rinse your mouth daily (with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash), and attend your six-month checkups (these appointments are vital for a top-notch oral health). As you do these things, make sure to use the right oral hygiene instruments, like those that have been approved by the American Dental Association. This can help you have a safe and effective oral hygiene routine.
