Keep Trying To Floss
Many people are good about brushing their teeth, but sometimes skip flossing. This is a bad idea. Flossing is the only way to clean food debris and plaque from between teeth.
Failure to floss can lead to cavities, and even gum disease. Our recommendation? Brush twice a day, and floss before going to bed at night.
Keep Getting Checkups
Regular cleanings and checkups are a critical part of maintaining good dental health. Along with brushing and flossing, they are your first line of defense against tooth decay. On average, we recommend a checkup every six months. Some patients can spread them out a little more, and others may need more frequent visits.
Remember, the link between your dental health and overall health is well-established. Patients come to Smile Center for Kids in Sunland and Edgemere TX from El Paso, Anthony, Socorro, Horizon City, and Canutillo for general and pediatric dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!
