Signs Your Dental Hygiene Is Working!

In addition to simply recognizing that you’re following the guidelines we offer you for effective care through dental hygiene, you may wonder: What are some signs that will let you know you’re truly doing an exceptional job with your brushing and your flossing? Will there be some way to measure whether you need to make improvements or if you’re already completely getting it right? The answer is yes! Of course, our Virginia Beach, VA team is happy to share some helpful, easy-to-read signs.

Your Breath Stays Fresh

Our team would like to offer up this important hint: If your breath is fresh and tends to remain fresh (of course, aside from those times you dig into a very garlic-heavy dish, etc.), then this is often a sign you’re taking good care of your smile with dental hygiene. When you remove plaque every day with brushing and flossing, you remove the bacteria they’re filled with and that cause yucky odors that result in bad breath. Your fresh breath means your teeth and mouth are probably nice and clean!

You Come And Go Without Cavities, Etc.

When you find that you come to us for your dental checkups and, time after time, you leave with a clean bill of smile health, you can rest easy with the knowledge that you are clearly doing a wonderful job with your dental hygiene! No sign of gingivitis or decay means your brushing and flossing are working.

Your Smile Feels Clean

If your smile remains clean feeling throughout the time you’re home and between dental cleanings with us, then this means you’re probably doing a wonderful job with your dental hygiene. You know that slick, lovely feeling you get when you come in for your visits? It’s because we remove plaque (and tartar) buildup, leaving you with smooth, clean teeth. If you’re on top of your brushing and flossing between visits, then chances are good your teeth continue feeling nice and clean because you’re right on target! Keep up the good work.
