Oral Home Care

To prevent tooth decay and gum disease you should:

1)      Brush the outside, inside and chewing surfaces of your teeth for two minutes at least twice daily.  Hold your brush at a 45 degree angle and sweep down the tooth from your gums.

2)      Floss at least once daily.  Only floss can clean between your teeth.

3)      Don’t forget to brush your tongue.

4)      Children under the age of 6 need the help of an adult to be sure that they are using proper brushing techniques.
