Top 5 Do’s And Don’ts Of Dental Hygiene

porcelain veneers price ColumbusWelcome to our blog and thanks for stopping by. Mark A. Miely DDS wants to deliver some straightforward tips for oral hygiene.

1.Do… remember you are just cleaning the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the appropriate angle can gently clean the bacteria away. Once plaque has settled into tartar, no measure of scrubbing at home can safely remove it.

Don’t… scour your teeth and gums until your gums pull back and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want exposed.

2.Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Thorough brushing and dedicated flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.

Don’t… wait to see your dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity or mouth sores.

3.Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves ample time to spend a full two minutes delicately cleaning all the nooks and crannies of your mouth.

Don’t… forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can halt a key routine.

4.Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional. Call Mark A. Miely DDS to set up your consultation today. 614-451-2100 We’ve got the phones ready!
