At Crabtree Dental in Katy TX, we want all our patients to have excellent dental health. With that in mind, we furnish some easy tips for oral hygiene.

1. Do… remember that brushing your teeth is all about cleaning plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the proper angle is best. Once plaque has settled into tartar, no measure of scrubbing at home can safely remove it.

Don’t… vigorously scrub your teeth and gums until your gums loosen and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want exposed.

2. Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Careful brushing and dedicated flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.

Don’t… wait to visit your dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth pain or mouth sores.

3.Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves ample time to spend a full two minutes cautiously cleaning all the nooks and crannies of your mouth.

Don’t… forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can delay a vital routine.

4. Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional. Call Crabtree Dental to set up your consultation today.

Don’t… worry if you don’t have the healthiest of mouths. Crabtree Dental can help you get back on track. Whether you’re looking for cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, or sedation dentistry, we can restore what has been lost or counsel with you on the best options.

5. Do… enjoy your mouth and all the wonders it is capable of.

Don’t… put off coming in for a checkup every six months.
