Your daily oral hygiene routine needs to include brushing your teeth twice as well as flossing at least once each day. This is an important first step in preventing cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems.

When brushing your teeth the American Dental Association recommends using a soft-bristled toothbrush and apply a brand of toothpaste with mild abrasives and added fluoride. This will help maximize your toothbrush’s ability to clean the faces of your teeth.

The fluoride component is especially helpful, as it has been proven to strengthen the mineral density of tooth enamel to further prevent the development of tooth decay.

When you are shopping for a new brand of toothpaste, you should take great care to look for the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance. Only products that have met the ADA’s rigorous standards for safety and effectiveness are approved to print this logo on their packaging.

It’s also worth noting that attending your routine dental checkup at Dr. Tae Chul Ho’s dental office is also an important aspect of maintaining good oral health. This brief outpatient appointment will help to clean your teeth, while also monitoring your mouth for any oral health problems. We also offer fluoride treatments at our dental practice.

If you live in the Manchester, Connecticut, area and you have an oral health concern, you should call 860-644-0099 to schedule an appointment with the dental care professionals at Buckland Hills Dental.
