Excellent oral health over time not only improve the health of your mouth, but also helps improve your overall life quality. Our dentist and team want to help you maintain your health and prevent dental issues by cultivating a consistent habit of the most important dental care steps.

We encourage you to make sure you are brushing and flossing your teeth every day to remove any plaque and residual food particles from that day. Inconsistency in your oral hygiene routine can allow tartar to develop and harden at the gum line and increase your risk of developing cavities on multiple teeth and experiencing gum disease.

Your oral health is also influenced by the quality of the oral hygiene products you use. Keep in mind that clever marketing sometimes disguises the fact that some cosmetic oral hygiene products do little more than freshen your breath. Your best option is to find products with the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance, which shows that oral care product has been thoroughly tested for effectiveness and safety and can accomplish what the marketing says it can.

Don’t forget to schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings at Cloud & Hill Dental Care, as these appointments allow our team to thoroughly clean your teeth and check for any signs of tooth decay, periodontal disease, or oral cancer.
