Taking care of your teeth is important. Everybody knows that to be true. If you don’t take care of your teeth by brushing and flossing, you’ll end up with tooth decay and that means more visits to the dentist. Visiting the dentist is not a bad thing, unless you’ve been neglecting your teeth and you end up needing extensive treatments. If spending a lot of time in the dental chair is not your favorite thing to do, the staff at Cypress Dental would like to suggest that you practice good dental hygiene in Covina at home every day of the year. Visiting our local dental office for Covina family dentistry is just one part of your overall oral health.
Good dental hygiene in Covina means not only taking care of your teeth by brushing them every day, but it means taking care of your gums too. When you brush, be sure to use a soft bristled brush and include brushing your gums. Brushing your gums gently will help get rid of bacteria and stimulate the gums to make sure there is always good blood flow through them. Of course, flossing is something that is a tremendous help to your gums too. Proper flossing will help remove bacteria that forms in between your teeth. It’s that hidden bacteria that can grow and cause cavities between your teeth. So flossing on a regular daily basis will help prevent that from happening.
If you have a family history of tooth decay, it would be a good idea to bring your children in to see Dr. Ismail Elsherif at Cypress Dental and talk about the possibility of having a sealant put on their teeth to help prevent future cavities. Having good dental hygiene in Covina and visiting Dr. Elsherif’s office regularly can help everyone in your family have better oral health. So give us a call today at 626-331-8041 and make an appointment for everyone in your family. We’ll make sure you understand how to maintain the best possible oral health for your entire family.
