ORAL HYGIENE MAINTENANCE IN PHOENIX
Oral hygiene maintenance is something that’s usually accomplished at home more than the dentist’s office. This involves a consistent and thorough brushing at least twice a day, flossing, rinsing, etc. When going to the dentist, they will check to see how your oral hygiene is going. They may even offer suggestions for improving your routine.
ORAL HYGIENE MAINTENANCE
Brushing is one of the most important aspects of oral maintenance. At minimum, patients should be brushing thoroughly at least twice a day. Using a soft to medium toothbrush is suggested. On top of that, patients should be careful to not brush too hard since this can irritate the gums and cause them to bleed.
Flossing is important because it reaches in between the teeth and under the gum along the teeth in order to remove particles that weren’t removed by brushing. Flossing after each meal or at least after brushing is suggested. Keeping floss with you while on the go is a great way to help ensure you’re fitting in your flossing each day.
MORE ABOUT ORAL HYGIENE MAINTENANCE
Mouthwash is often seen as an optional aspect to oral hygiene maintenance. However, it shouldn’t be seen in this manner since it’s also a vital step to keeping teeth in tip-top shape. Mouthwash reaches all the crooks and crannies that brushing and flossing can’t reach. This helps removes germs, bad bacteria, etc. that can cause bad breath and decay.
As a part of oral hygiene maintenance, foods like junk food, soda, etc. should be avoided as much as possible. Alleviating multiple snacks in between meals is also a great way to help keep your teeth healthy. These kinds of foods and drinks can cause decay or plaque buildup, especially if a patient’s routine isn’t consistent.

What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.
Dr. Arthur’s one of the best dentists I have amazing dental visits and the quality of work he does is outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist. Thank you so much for all the great work.
