Dentist Tips
You must remove plaque if you are to prevent cavaties. To do this, try to always brush twice a day, preferrably after meals. Floss and use a mouthwash daily.

Dentists recommend brushing your teeth for at least 2 minutes each session.

Always be sure that your toothpaste contains fluoride. This is the active ingredient that fights tooth decay.

Brush your teeth before going to the dentist but don't overbrush. You don't want your gums bleeding. The dentist will know what you're up to.

Don't forget to bring your insurance card to the dentist office with you.

Bring a squeeze ball to the dentist office with you. It might help relieve some tension.

Prevention is worth a pound of cure. Brush your teeth regularly, floss, use mouthwash, and get your teeth cleaned every 6 months. If you do these things, you'll be able to avoid major dental issues.

Don't brush too hard. This can lead to receding gums and oversensitive teeth.

Most water supplies contain fluoride which helps fight cavities. If you don't have time to brush your teeth, swish around some water in your mouth.

Avoid eating too much sugar. This is the leading cause of tooth decay. Avoid drinking sodas frequently and eating hard candy throughout the day.

The proper way to brush your teeth is to hold the tooth brush at a slight angle against your teeth and to move the brush in a short back and forth motion. Make sure to brush all sides of the tooth – inside, outside and chewing surface.

Remember to replace your toothbrush – or electronic toothbrush head - every few months. A frayed toothbrush is not capable of doing a proper job so it is best to have a new brush to get your teeth cleaned.

Don’t wait until a tooth ache is unbearable before going to the dentist. If the pain lasts for more then a day call your dentist and make an appointment. The earlier something is looked at the less work will need to be done.

Listen to the dentist’s rules when it comes to dealing with braces and retainers. Meaning no chewing gum or forgetting to clean them. The better your take care of your braces and retainers, the better they can do their job and the sooner you can go without them.

Talking It's about "time!"

No matter what toothpaste you use, it won't do you any good if you don't brush long enough. Most brands recommend brushing "for at least one minute" for best results. Some electric toothbrushes have a built-in timer that shuts the motor off after two minutes; for a less expensive alternative, use an inexpensive egg timer ("like sands through the hourglass") or use the timer on your microwave oven or stove.
