Proper Oral Hygiene
It sounds simple, but many people, even adults, are unaware of how to properly brush their teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush or an electric toothbrush. Use a slow, but steady circular motion and be sure to brush the inner surfaces of the teeth along with the biting surface. Brushing the tongue can also help remove bacteria and freshen breath. Brushing should be completed at least twice per day and ideally after each meal. Daily flossing is also essential to maintain a healthy mouth.
It is no surprise that what we put in our mouth has an effect on the health of our teeth. Patients are encouraged to consume a well-balanced diet consisting of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables to help maintain the health of their mouth and entire body.
Tobacco use can also increase the risk of gum disease as well as oral cancer. Patients interested in quitting smoking can ask Dr. Fritz for a referral to resources that can help.
Regular Dental Care
Our dental team is trained to identify any potential dental issues. Regular dental visits will ensure that any changes in your mouth are caught early while they are more easily treated. Professional cleanings can help remove plaque and prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Dr. Fritz recommends all patients receive dental checkups every six months.
