Good dental hygiene is essential to maintaining a healthy smile. Our talented dentist and dental team at Corey I. Johnson D.D.S., P.C. work hard to improve your oral health, but we cannot do it alone. To make sure that your smile stays healthy, be sure to practice good oral hygiene. Your daily dental hygiene habits should include:

• Brushing your teeth at least twice a day or after every meal. We recommend that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that contains fluoride.
• Flossing your teeth at least once a day. The most important time to floss is right before you go to bed at night.
• Eating a balanced, healthy diet. Avoiding excessive amounts of very sugary or acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.

These simple steps will help you prevent tooth decay, cavities, periodontal (gum) disease, and other dental problems. In addition, be sure to visit our dental office every six months for a regular dental cleaning and exam.
