Happy Teeth Don’t Just Happen

Your New Mexico Dentist And Cleaning Your TeethKeeping your teeth clean is a critical factor in maintaining a beautiful smile. One of the benefits of visiting Sundance Dental & Orthodotnics in Farmington NM for regular checkups is a thorough teeth cleaning and a review of your brushing practices.

Your Partner in Oral Health

Our dental hygienist can professionally clean and polish your teeth at yoursemiannual dental check-up. The hygienist also helps you keep your teeth clean by assessing the condition of your teeth and recommending improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits.

Having a professional dental cleaning is the only way to get rid of plaque (a sticky substance in which bacteria thrives) and tartar (a calcium deposit that forms on teeth and contributes to tooth decay).

Don’t Forget Basic Dental Hygiene

At home, your dental health strategy should include:

  • Daily brushing and flossing. You should brush and floss twice a day. Just before bedtime is especially important, because it cleans out the germs and plaque that build up during the course of the day.
  • Proper brushing. It’s important not only to brush, but to brush properly. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush in a gentle, circular motion along the gum line. Take your time; a minimum of two minutes is recommended. Don’t forget to brush your tongue!
  • Using fluoridated toothpaste. There are dozens of choices when it comes to toothpaste. Whether you prefer mint flavored or bubble gum, fluoride is the most important consideration. It is your best defense against cavities.
  • Limiting sugary and acidic foods. Acidic fruits, teas, and coffee contributes to enamel erosion. Sugar converts into acid when it’s in your mouth. You don’t have to avoid these foods entirely, but choose carefully and minimize.

To this at-home list, we add: seeing the dentist twice a year. (You saw that one coming, right?) Your daily dental health care habits are essential, but so is the attention and care of a dentist. A professional teeth cleaning alone is worth the trip, but we can also identify issues before they become serious, and treat them.
