The best way to prevent common oral health issues such as tooth decay and gum disease is by adopting a consistent oral hygiene routine. During your regularly scheduled visits to Madera dentist Gregory D. Miyake, we will discuss your daily routine to help you learn the most effective ways to maintain optimal oral health.


Your daily routine should consist of:

·         Brushing your teeth – Using a soft bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, brush your teeth for at least two minutes after every meal and snack

·         Flossing – At least once a day, use a clean section of floss to remove food particles and plaque from in between your teeth

You can help maximize results by avoiding food high in starch and simple carbohydrates, as well as by choosing snacks and beverages that do not contain sugar.

Office Visits
