Do you feel self-conscious about your smile because you’ve fallen behind with your dental care? The excellent news is that it’s never too late to the page to a healthier, more confident smile you can't wait to share with others!

Don't worry, because your dentist is more concerned with where your oral health is going than where it’s been. The first step is to get you current with your teeth cleanings and dental exams in South Calgary. You can’t maintain your healthiest smile without these preventive services, and there couldn’t be an easier way to protect your oral health.

Your Oral Hygiene Routine

Managing your oral health between your six-month dental appointments is essential if you want a problem-free smile. Better yet, avoiding dental problems also helps save you time, money, and discomfort in the long term. 

  • Brushing – Being diligent and brushing at least twice a day is a simple step that offers huge oral health benefits. When you brush, you remove bacteria-filled plaque from your teeth, which helps you avoid cavities and gum disease. Ask your dental hygienist for tips to be sure you get the most out of your at-home efforts. 
  • Flossing – Brushing is essential, but it doesn’t get your teeth as clean as they should be. Flossing once a day removes plaque and tartar from between your teeth where your brush can’t reach and where many dental problems develop. 
  • Professional cleanings and exams – You should schedule appointments for teeth cleanings and dental exams in South Calgary twice a year or as directed by your dentist to stay current with any problems that might be developing. You can also use this time to ask your dental care team for more helpful tricks and tips for maintaining a problem-free smile.
