The professionals at Wright Family Dentistry strive to provide you with a healthy and beautiful smile. Although our services can help you walk out of our office with a healthier and brighter smile, regular dental visits are not substitute for proper home care. The following is a list of practices that can help you maintain your dental hygiene:
Brush at least twice a day to remove plaque formed from meals eaten throughout the day. Make sure to brush the outer and inner surfaces of each tooth. Use the tip of the brush to clean the inside of the front teeth. Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
Floss at least once dayly to help clean spaces between your teeth and disrupt plaque colonies from building up, in order to prevent damage to the gums, teeth, and bone.
Rinse your mouth with water after meals if you are unable to brush.
If you implement these practices in your daily life and participate in regularly scheduled visits to our office, you will be rewarded with a beautiful and healthy smile. Proper dental hygiene will keep you from unnecessary pain and discomfort, increase your confidence, and give you a smile that will last a lifetime.
