Dr. Pilgrim and our talented team of dental experts are tirelessly committed to educating our patients on good dental hygiene habits, but we can only get them so far. Good oral hygiene includes professional care and many daily routines at home that require consistency and care. You are responsible for your oral health, which is why we strongly recommend that you:
- Brush your teeth at least twice each day or after every meal. We recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and an ADA®-approved, fluoridated toothpaste.
- Floss daily to remove plaque and food debris that may be trapped between your teeth.
- Eat a balanced, nutritious diet to limit the amount of sugary and acidic foods you eat, ultimately preventing tooth decay.
- Visit our Oklahoma City dental office for preventive care. This way, any developing problems can be treated before they can cause significant damage to your smile and oral health.
