Our dentist, Dr. Abbas Nejad , strongly encourages you to keep up with oral hygiene regularly. To do so, you should brush twice a day, floss once a day and attend your dental checkups every six months. This will benefit your teeth, your gums, your smile and your oral health. To help you understand how it can benefit you, our dentist is happy to list the benefits here:

-Oral hygiene can help you prevent cavities: This is possible because brushing and flossing can clean the teeth and gums and remove the plaque and bacteria from the area. Brushing can also be especially helpful if you use fluoride toothpaste. The fluoride will dive into your tooth enamel and strengthen it, giving it the ability to fight decay-causing bacteria.

-Oral hygiene can help you prevent gum disease: This is possible because brushing and flossing can remove the plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, from between your teeth and from along the gumline. This is very important because plaque promotes gum disease. Your dental cleanings are very helpful when preventing gum disease. This is because the cleaning provided removes the plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from your smile, which is something your typical oral hygiene routine cannot do.

-Oral hygiene can help you have an attractive smile: This is possible because brushing and flossing can remove noticeable substances that are stuck between your teeth. Brushing and dental checkups can also help you have an attractive smile because they can remove minor stains from the surfaces of your teeth to give them a whiter appearance.
