Maintaining Good Oral Hygiene

Keeping up with your good oral hygiene habits is one of the best ways to maintain your healthy, white smile. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we encourage each of our family dentistry patients to keep a good daily routine, whether they are four or eighty-five.

Brush and floss daily. Almost everything you put in your mouth, from your morning coffee to that afternoon snack can contribute to tooth decay and cavity development. You should brush at least twice a day to keep your mouth free from food debris and bacteria that will form plaque on your teeth if left unchecked. If you can brush or rinse your mouth after meals, it is even better.

Keep your regular checkups. A very important part of maintaining a healthy smile is getting to your regularly scheduled checkups and dental hygiene appointments. We can find evidence of tooth decay or gum disease early so that we can treat it before it because a big problem. With a professional cleaning, we can also get to places you may have neglected and discuss how you can improve your at-home hygiene routine.

If you are ready to schedule your next checkup and dental cleaning with our family dentistry practice, please call (908) 221-1188 or contact Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville today. We serve patients in Bernardsville, Morristown and the surrounding areas of New Jersey.
