Re-think your dental care habits with these 5 tips from a Marietta area dentist

Most of us probably think we have our dental care routine down and don't need to do anything differently. Your dentist in Marietta has some tips that might make you re-think some of your habits to make your smile healthier.

1. Change your toothbrush

One of the simplest ways to improve your dental care habits is by switching to a soft-bristled toothbrush. You should also remember to get a new toothbrush roughly every three months so that you're not spreading around old bacteria or using a brush with worn-down bristles.

2. Review your brushing technique

In addition to having the right toothbrush, the technique you use to brush your teeth is actually quite important. First, make sure you don't brush too hard. If the bristles bend, you're brushing too hard and could wear down your enamel. You should also be brushing with circular motions for at least 2-3 minutes to cover all your teeth properly.

3. Drink with a straw

If having white teeth is important to you, but you don't want to give up your coffee, tea or wine, you might still be able to keep stains off your teeth. One way to do this is to drink through a straw, so that the substances don't contact your teeth.

4. Clean your teeth after you eat

Another tip for keeping your teeth clean, bright, and healthy is to clean your teeth after you eat, even if it's just a snack. You should probably brush your teeth after your main meals, but your teeth could still benefit from rinsing your mouth every time you eat. If you won't be able to brush or rinse your teeth, you could try to finish your meal with something like an apple or carrot, or carry sugarless gum with you to get any food particles out of your teeth and freshen your breath at any time.

5. Visit the dentist

Finally, don't neglect your regular visits to the dentist. It may seem unnecessary, but even the best personal hygiene can't fully protect your smile. Your dentist needs to see you twice a year to keep tartar from eating away at your teeth and to check for any signs of decay so they can be dealt with right away.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
