We’d like to suggest that you stick to the basics of dental care as you embark on this year. Keep your routine simple and achievable.

The Basics of Dental Care

  • Brush your teeth at least two times a day. The morning brushing is usually an easy habit to maintain, because everyone wants to brush away the awful odors that formed in the mouth overnight. However, the nighttime brushing is often overlooked because many people simply fall asleep or are too tired to perform the nightly brushing. This habit of skipping the second brushing can have harmful results for your teeth. It’s important that you wash away plaque before you go to sleep or it will begin to calcify on your teeth and cause infections and cavities.
  • Floss your teeth one time per day. It doesn’t matter what time of day that you floss, it just matters that you do it. This flossing process helps prevent cavities and gum disease. It removes the plaque (a sticky film) between your teeth to prevent cavities. The American Dental Association recommends flossing one time per day.
  • Book your annual or every six month cleaning and checkup with Blue Sky Dental Group. These visits will ensure that your dental issues get addressed before they have a chance too develop into major problems.

Book your cleaning and checkup with Blue Sky Dental Group today, so you can start 2018 with healthy dental habits.
