We can’t believe 2023 is coming to an end. Have you thought about your New Year’s resolutions yet? If one of those goals is to have better oral health, we are here to help you. At Riverside Dental Group in California, we offer a variety of dental services ranging from general care to oral surgery so we can be there for you every step of the way. In today’s blog, we’re here with some tips on how to take care of your dental hygiene to have good habits going into 2024.
Preventive Care Starts At Home
First, and most importantly, you should always brush, floss, and use mouthwash at least twice a day. By doing this, you will decrease the chances of cavities and other problems that can come up with poor hygiene. Be sure also to change your toothbrush every three months. If you haven’t done that yet, this is your reminder.
You should also see the dentist twice a year. These cleanings and exams help us detect problems before you develop symptoms. Common issues like cavities and gingivitis can be reversed if treated early enough, so be sure to be on top of your appointments.
Don’t Skip Your Extra Care
If you end up needing a filling, root canal, or extraction, don’t put this off. We know that extra dental work is the last thing you want, but it can save you more trouble in the future. Dental fillings help prevent cavities from worsening, which can cause pain and even tooth loss in severe cases. Root canals can restore a tooth after severe decay and can relieve the discomfort from the cavity.
Extractions and other oral surgery are not anybody’s favorite tasks, but they can improve your oral health. If you’ve been told you need removal for wisdom teeth or any other, schedule your appointment promptly.
Enhance Your Smile
If you are looking for an extra boost to your appearance, we can help with that too. We offer several forms of cosmetic treatments including whitening, bonding, contouring, and more. We can also help you with your orthodontic needs as well. To get started on these improvements, visit your dentist today.
