Dental Hygiene in Thornton

Oral Health Beyond Just
Brushing Your Teeth

Did you know that 1 in 4 adults, aged 20 to 64, currently have at least one cavity? (That’s a lot of people!)

One of the best ways to avoid cavities altogether is by visiting your dentist regularly. You can have a strict brushing and flossing regime, but without regular dental hygiene appointments, bacteria and plaque can build up easily. By visiting your dental hygienist, they can remove all the plaque in those hard-to-reach places and give you a fluoride treatment to strengthen your enamel.

If you are looking to schedule a hygiene appointment in Thornton, give us a call today!

How to Brush Your Teeth

To brush your teeth, you will first add toothpaste to your toothbrush. Then, you will brush the fronts and backs of your teeth, as well as along the gum line and your tongue for two minutes. (This will help remove any leftover food particles and plaque from your mouth.)

How to Floss Your Teeth

We recommend that you floss your teeth at least once per day. To floss, you will take a piece of the floss and wrap it around your fingers. You will then move the string gently in between each of your teeth to dislodge food and other particles.

Choosing Oral Hygiene Products

When you are looking for oral hygiene products, we recommend that you select products that are “dentist recommended”. Some common things to pick up at the store to help you maintain oral health include a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash.

When to Call Your Dentist

If you are experiencing any type of tooth or gum discomfort, call us right away. Any pain you are experiencing could be an indicator of something more severe. We can use digital x-rays and examinations to find the root of your pain.

Caring for Sensitive Teeth

If you have sensitive teeth, be sure to brush your teeth gently and use a toothbrush and toothpaste that is specific to tooth sensitivity. You may simply be brushing too hard. Tooth enamel can be damaged by aggressive brushing, which can lead to sensitivity.

Professional Dental Cleaning

At Trembath Dentistry, we recommend that you get a professional dental cleaning twice per year. During this appointment, we will clean, floss, and polish your teeth. We will also perform a digital x-ray and give you a fluoride treatment to strengthen your enamel!
