Daily Oral Care

Your biannual cleanings and examinations with Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake are essential for year-round oral health. These routine office visits also allow us to detect early sings of oral health problems and provide prompt treatment when needed. Alone however, they cannot prevent oral health problems from occurring. For this, you need a consistent daily oral care routine.

Brushing and Flossing

Brushing is the cornerstone of your daily routine and should ideally be done after every meal and snack. When brushing, be sure to use a soft bristled toothbrush to avoid damaging enamel and a toothpaste that address your specific oral health needs. During your routine visits to our Fresno dental office, Dr. Miyake can discuss which types of toothpaste will best protect and enhance your smile.

Flossing should be done both morning and night to guard against tooth decay and gum disease. As with toothpaste, there are many different types of floss and not each one is ideal for every smile. Dr. Miyake can help you choose the type of floss – tape, ribbon, or woven – that will best remove plaque and food particles from in between your teeth during your next visit. Flossing is something that is commonly skipped, but should never be. It is your best defense against gum disease and tooth infection.

Practicing a good daily oral hygiene routine helps make your visits to our office faster and more comfortable. It also works to prevent both minor and major oral health concerns and helps ensure a strong and attractive smile for years to come.
