Your oral health is extremely important to Dr. Jared Ayes and our entire Transcend Dental team, which is why we ask you to take great care of your smile with the best oral hygiene routine possible. However, we know that oral hygiene can be tricky, especially because it’s only effective if you have the correct techniques. So, to help you keep your smile in tip-top shape, we recommend doing the following things:

-Brush: Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. It’s important to brush for two minutes each time and scrub each tooth thoroughly as you do so.

-Floss: Floss your teeth once a day with a flossing tool of your choice. Make sure you scrape the sides of each tooth and remove as much plaque as possible. While you do so, please be gentle along the gumline. You don’t want to harm your oral tissues as you clean your pearly whites.

-Rinse: Rinsing is a beneficial technique that completes the cleaning job. Rinse your mouth at least once a day with an effective mouthwash, like antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. Follow the instructions on the bottle and rinse after you’ve brushed and flossed your teeth.

-Visit your dentist: See your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. These appointments are vital because the treatments involved are the only ways to completely remove the plaque from your teeth. Without these treatments, you could easily fall victim to tooth decay and gum disease.
