What should I do between visits?
Regular dental checkups are important, but you need to care for your teeth properly between visits. Brushing and flossing regularly are important to good oral hygiene – you should brush your teeth four times a day (after each meal and before bedtime) and floss at least twice a day.
Eating a healthy diet is another way to improve your oral hygiene and prevent cavities and gum disease. Keep sugary foods and drinks to a minimum, and choose healthy snacks like fresh fruits and low fat dairy products.
