Family Dental Care: What Do We Need To Remember?

If you’re in charge of your family’s dental care, then the main question you may find yourself asking yourself or our team is: What do we need to remember? Of course, it seems like there’s an awful lot to remember, which is why the idea of taking care of your own smile and the tissues of those you love can feel like a much bigger project than you can possibly take on successfully. You’ll be pleased when you discover that sticking to some primary categories involved with optimal smile care is so easy to do.

You Need To Remember To Physically Come In

It’s easy to say, “Oh, that’s right! We all need dental cleanings,” as you think about your family dental care. However, you might find yourself saying this for a year or two, each time feeling a bit guiltier about procrastinating. It’s extremely important that you you’re making physically heading into our practice one of the most important details on your list. This needs to always include a visit for a cleaning and checkup and it must happen two times over the course of every year. As for everything else, such as fillings, etc., they should happen as quickly as possible, as well.

You Need To Remember That Home Care Is Where It’s At!

Yes, you have got to see us in person for your professional family dental care. Add to that the fact that all 365 days of the year require your home care, too! Here’s the simple list:

  • Brushing: Everyone needs to brush two times every day. Those sessions must be two minutes long. The brush should have soft bristles and the toothpaste should have fluoride.
  • Flossing: Everyone needs to do this once every day (it couldn’t get any easier!). Use whatever you enjoy using, so that this is a task that everyone will be more than willing to complete.
