While brushing and flossing your teeth daily is crucial, it’s not the only thing you need to do in order to achieve and maintain great oral hygiene. If you want a healthy, beautiful, and functional smile for your life, it’s also important to make regular visits to your dentist for dental cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments.
Dental cleanings are essential for a clean smile and safeguarding your mouth from gum disease. For maximum results, it’s recommended to visit your dentist at least every 6 months for your dental cleaning.
Sealants are plastic coatings that go on your back teeth to prevent tooth decay from forming on your teeth. Sealants can be applied at any age, however, it’s recommended to have sealants placed young and within 6 months after the teeth have erupted.
Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent tooth decay and strengthens teeth. It can be applied as either a rinse or a varnish. Similar to sealants, fluoride treatments are most effective at boosting your oral hygiene when it is applied during adolescence.
