The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist twice a year or once every six months for a professional exam and cleaning. Your dentist may recommend more frequent visits depending on the status of your oral health.
How can I keep my teeth healthy?
Healthy eating habits lead to healthy teeth. A well-balanced diet from the five major food groups always helps to promote healthy teeth.
What are some tips for good oral hygiene?
Brush your teeth twice a day
Clean between teeth daily with floss. Decay and food particles can still linger between the teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach.
Eat a balanced diet and limit snacking in between meals.
Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
Replace your toothbrush every three or four months or sooner if the bristles become frayed.
