Does Dentist in Pembroke Pines Stress on the Importance Of Oral Hygiene Oral hygiene goes much further than just making sure that your teeth are getting brushed once or twice a day. There are several highly recommended steps given by Dentist in Pembroke Pines when it comes to healthy teeth and the importance of good oral hygiene is for keeping a healthy mouth and body. While it is vital to brush your teeth twice daily it is also very important to be brushing them correctly. The first step in correct tooth brushing is to have the correct type of toothbrush. All though there are different types of toothbrushes labeled under "soft" bristles "medium" bristles and "hard" bristles. It is important to remember that no matter if the "medium" and "hard" bristles are approved by the American Dental Association upon the packaging most all dentists always insist that their patients only use toothbrushes with "soft" bristles. The reason for most Dentists in Pembroke Pines making sure that "soft" bristled tooth brushes are always advised is because the harder the bristles the more damage that will eventually be done to your teeth over time. There will be damage done to the gums causing gum loss and the removal of very important tooth enamel from the less flexible brush bristles. One other important point to remember about toothbrushes is that they are to be tossed for a new one every three months whether you think so or not. Dentist in Pembroke Pines recommend another important step of good oral hygiene is to brush your teeth thoroughly in an up and down motion and do not brush too hard. Also do not forget to brush your tongue at least with several very good back and forth strokes because your tongue holds a very large number of germs causing the majority of halitosis. When brushing the tongue go as far back as you can and do a good 10 to 15 strokes for the best cleaning. Make sure to rinse your mouth out well 2 or 3 times after brushing so to remove anything left behind.

Good oral hygiene includes daily flossing before each time brushing using good fluoride toothpaste and a high-quality mouth rinse that is fully approved by the American Dental association. If you are not sure which are the best toothpastes and mouth rinses to be using by consulting your Dentist in Pembroke Pines you will be properly advised on what is best for your teeth and oral mouth care. It is also very important for your teeth to avoid sugary foods and soda pops because of the damage that will eventually be caused. The importance of oral hygiene must include getting regular dental check ups and regular dental cleanings every 6 months to 12 months. If you are doing all you can at home to take the proper care of your oral hygiene the dentist will most always give you a good bill of health but this does not mean to skip any check-up or cleaning appointments because there can always be dental problems that the dentist can quickly find during a regular check-up that otherwise may be missed by the blind eye during regular brushing and flossing.

Does Best Dentist In Pembroke Pines Look After Your Child’s Oral Hygiene The teeth of our children are so much more important than just being able to chew their food and aesthetics. Over time there has come to be truth in the major concerns that when our childrens teeth are not taken care of properly the bacteria and tooth decay often will lead to other dangerous health issues too. According to Best Dentist in Pembroke Pines one of the major health problems that even industrialized countries currently have is the reality of tooth decay. Just for the United States alone there are approximately 90 of the overall population to be with no less than one cavity and the largest population within America to be most commonly at risk of dental health issues and neglect are the children and the elderly. Best Dentist in Pembroke Pines know that the most common reasons for tooth decay in children are sugary sweets soda pop and most all kinds of juices being left behind on the childs teeth from infrequent brushing or just inadequate brushing habits. These types of drinks and foods will eventually destroy the childs tooth enamel and cause mild to even extreme cases of tooth decay. Tooth decay upon the childs teeth not only is highly destructive and unattractive but also is very painful to the child. Not only is the childs self esteem afflicted but also the constant pain is also physically afflicting and mentally distracting to anyone but especially a child. Not only do Best Dentist in Pembroke Pines recommend for you as a parent to make sure and to limit the sugar and juice intake of your child but to actually eliminate soda drinks all together. The dentists of children and adults have long known that the consumption of even one 12-ounce soda pop a day is highly damaging to the enamel of our teeth but especially to the childrens tooth enamel due to its acidic nature even more than the sugars in it. With the elimination of soda pop and a drastic cut back in sugary sticky foods and sugar-laced juices there will be a huge improvement seen by your childs dentist during their next visit. Since children tend to often try and rush through the brushing rituals the Best Dentist in Pembroke Pines recommends for parents to physically help with the childs brushing for the first several years so less of the plaque and bacteria is left behind. The childrens dentistry also recommends that a child be first seen by the age of 3 years old so the child can get used to regular dental visits. After the child is more familiar with the dental process regular yearly cleanings and check-ups must be followed for your child to have the healthy teeth that they should have.

Just as anything else to do with our childs health the childrens dentistry highly suggests preventive measures over your child having to go through the proper dental procedures in fixing painful tooth issues. Along with the regular brushing of at least twice a day and regular annual check-ups and cleanings your child should have a clear protective sealant applied to their teeth by a childrens dentist. It is also highly important to make sure your child is brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily with your help.
