Did you have a dental appointment scheduled prior to quarantine? Reschedule your appointment at Greenway Dental Care. It is important to get another appointment scheduled if you are missing your bi-annual appointment. If our office has not reached out to you already to get a new appointment set up, call us or use our online scheduling tool. We also want to share some tips for maintaining your oral health during this time. Read on below:
Take Care of Your Teeth and Gums
You should keep up with a regular oral healthcare routine at home since you’re missing your deep cleaning. It can be difficult to keep up with small things like brushing and flossing when our normal routines are upended. However, you have to keep up your oral health if you want to avoid tooth decay and gum disease. You can also brush your teeth after every meal, as that is beneficial for getting food particles out from between your teeth as soon as possible.
Maintain a Healthy Diet
First, try to avoid consuming a large amount of sugar. Harmful bacteria that live in your mouth feed on sugar and give off an acidic byproduct that eats through the enamel on your teeth. This is what causes tooth decay. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking water. If you drink tap water, there’s a high chance it’s fortified with fluoride. This helps to make your tooth enamel stronger. As an added bonus, water helps to rinse away excess sugars and food particles away from your smile.
