What Is Lurking Under Your Gumline?

Your overall dental health depends on healthy teeth and gums. Along with regular checkups at Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA, consistent brushing and flossing helps keep everything in good shape. You already know how to brush your teeth. But there are best practices that you may not be aware of. Bearing in mind that there is always room to improve, we offer up these tips:

  • Hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle with the bristle tips aimed at the line where the tooth and gum meet.
  • Choose a toothbrush with soft bristles.
  • Get all over your teeth; the front, the side, inside, outside, and the top.
  • Use fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Use dental floss.
Remember, poor brushing and flossing allows plaque to build up on your teeth, and in between. This puts you at risk for gum disease. Regular brushing and flossing, done properly, is the best way to prevent plaque from building up. At Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA, our family dentistry helps all our patients to enjoy excellent dental health. People from Modesto, Patterson, and Oakdale also come to our practice for restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Contact us today!

I have finally found a dentist/hygienist that I feel comfortable with. I was there today and felt relaxed the entire time and am actually looking forward to going back for more dental work. Weird, but true.
