From cavities to an abscess, implants to bonding, there are quite a few different problems – and solutions – in the oral health world. While our dental skilled team at Complete Dental Care in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania are happy to help solve those problems, we’d much rather see you avoid most of them altogether.

The best way to avoid these oral health problems, and to stay on track to maintain great oral health for the rest of your life, is to follow these simple, easy instructions.

Floss
For whatever reason, flossing is hard for people to do. A common complaint is that it hurts, and if you haven’t flossed regularly before, it’ll be uncomfortable for a few days. However, your gums will quickly adapt to it, and you’ll notice a near-instant change in the quality of your oral health. Flossing gets rids of all the junk your brush can’t quite reach.

Brushing and mouthwash
Brushing is a simple activity, right? It is, but you’d be surprised at how many people don’t brush regularly. All you have to do is set aside time in the morning, and right before bed, to clean off your teeth.

You should also use mouthwash, since that will kill all the germs that your flossing and brushing didn’t take care of.

Regular checkups
Lastly, you want to make sure you’re not skipping your regular checkups at our office. These help us keep an eye on potential cavities and other problems. We’re here to help you have great oral health – you just have to come into the office.
