Chompers. Pearly Whites. Dents. Gnashers. Grill. While you can switch up what you call them, at Thompson and Frey Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Owensboro, we remind you to never switch up a well-engrained oral health routine.
Practicing proper oral hygiene daily with pay off throughout your life. You’ll prevent tooth decay, plaque, and gum disease, not to mention bad breath (something friends, family, and coworkers will also appreciate).
By brushing your teeth twice every day, you remove the plaque that causes cavities. Plaque is that soft and sticky film that builds up on your teeth, a process that happens around the clock. It’s caused by food debris and bacteria.
It’s just as important to floss at least once a day. Flossing gets the plaque between your teeth, where your toothbrush cannot reach.
Scheduling twice-yearly checkups at our office is also very important. Regular checkups can prevent cavities and gum disease. Each checkup also includes an oral cancer screening.
