Dental Hygiene

Maintaining great oral health requires professional dental cleanings, but it is equally crucial to maintain good dental hygiene at home.

Dr. Hoang highly recommends brushing your teeth at least twice daily and flossing once a day to prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues. Additionally, over-the-counter toothpastes and mouth rinses with fluoride, a balanced diet, and reducing sugary snacks can help keep your teeth healthy and strong.

After meals, drinking a glass of water can help wash away sugars from foods and drinks. When consuming acidic substances such as sodas or candies, wait for 30 minutes before brushing to allow your saliva time to neutralize the acids and protect your teeth.

Developing healthy dental hygiene habits can keep your teeth strong, healthy, and beautiful.
