No doubt you know that general oral hygiene is necessary for fresh breath and healthy teeth and gums. Yet even so, many people remain perplexed as to what good dental hygiene entails.

In short, dental hygiene requires keeping your teeth and gums healthy through an oral care routine. This obviously includes visiting Fresno dentist Dr. Greg Miyake twice a year for professional teeth cleanings and thorough examinations. It also includes a daily dental hygiene routine that keeps your teeth free of decay and disease in between visits.

Taking Care of Your Teeth

Taking care of your teeth is easy. In less than a combined ten minutes a day, you can accomplish everything you need to maintain optimal dental health.

All you need to do is:

·         Brush your teeth with a soft bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste after every meal and snack

·         Floss in between every tooth at least once a day

·         Limit your intake of sugary foods and beverages

With those simple steps, you can help keep your teeth free of decay and your gums free of disease while also maintaining fresh breath and a bright, white smile.
