Optimal Smile Care: What Should Every Year Include?

You know on a very general level what your smile care should include. You need to brush your teeth and floss them. You’re supposed to have some visits with us, sometimes in order to help you stay the course with prevention. Then, of course, other times, it’s so we can fix things to get your smile back in wonderful condition. While the big picture idea in terms of your dental care may be something you feel you can abstractly describe at a glance, our Southlake, TX team wonders: Can you describe what each and every year should include, if your ultimate goal is a healthy grin? Let’s walk through each and every fundamental detail, just to be sure the answer is a big “yes!”

Two Visits With Us For Prevention

When we’re taking a bigger picture look at your preventive dental care with our team, we zoom out and start with the detail that spans an annual basis for completion: It’s the care you complete when you call us up, set up an appointment, and come in for professional services. In terms of the prevention we provide, we’re talking about your two-times-a-year dental exams and dental cleanings with us. One year, two visit. It’s that simple.

730 Dental Hygiene Sessions

If we’re going to get quite technical about what your dental care should be made up of, and we have already discussed what you’re accessing in terms of protection when you visit us for your smile, remember that you’re also following through with dental hygiene (brushing as well as flossing) daily. Don’t forget that every day means two hygiene sessions. So, that multiplies out to 730 sessions a year! It may sound like a lot but it’s very quick and yields exceptional results for your oral health.

Three To Four Toothbrushes

Plain and simple: You should brush with one brush for about three to four months and then start over with a brand new one. So, dependent upon how frequently you decide to replace your brush, one year of home dental care should have you using three to four toothbrushes.

A Look Back!

We want you to consider the fact that the best dental care you can provide yourself is care you consider open to improvement! If you can take an earnest look at what you’ve done for your teeth and gums, ask yourself if there’s anything you could do better, and then address those details, you’re in lovely shape!
