What Ongoing Care Do We Recommend?

Jenni Weaver, one of our superstar hygienists shares what we recommend for your best ongoing oral care:

“To keep your mouth healthy between check-ups, we recommend creating a daily routine of brushing and flossing.  You should brush your teeth at least twice a day.  Good effective brushing should take at least two minutes.  Time yourself and you might be surprised.  The average adult brushing time is 20-30 seconds!  Flossing should be done daily.  The biggest excuse that I hear for not flossing is time.  It takes practice, but once you get the technique down, it only takes a minute or two.  Mouth rinses are good to use too because they have anti-microbial effects.  Some contain fluoride as well.  The more time that you spend with your home care, the less time that you will spend in the dental chair!”
