The ABC’s Of Care

When you start getting too caught up in all the tiny details that can come up as you research oral health care, it’s better to get back to basics. As a result, instead of feeling completely overwhelmed, you can simply relax and realize that keeping your smile looking good, feeling good, and ensuring it lasts is not as tall an order as it seems. Let’s review the ABC’s of dental care, so you know that it doesn’t take that much to protect your smile.


It helps to be accurate with your dental care if you’re hoping for good results. This doesn’t mean you need to be perfect. It just means that you need to follow the guidelines that we provide for you. For instance, if we tell you that you should brush two times every day, you’ll need to do it twice instead of just once. If you’re brushing, you need to do a thorough job, not a quick job. If we tell you to come in every six months, don’t wait 10 months. See? Pretty simple.

Building Blocks

Another important essential factor in protecting your oral health is keeping in mind that there are some basic building blocks that provide you with everything you need to maintain your smile. Here they are:

  • Brushing
  • Flossing
  • Preventive Care Visits


Now, you know you need to brush, floss, and see us for dental visits. You know that your oral health depends on accuracy regarding the guidelines for those building blocks. So, what could be left? Consistency, of course. Just remember that following our suggestions all the time is what will ensure your efforts work.
