21 Feb Boost your Oral Health
Having good oral health makes your life better in more ways than you might realize. From helping fight cavities to improving your systemic health, if your teeth and mouth are healthy it can have a big positive impact on the quality of life you enjoy each and every day.
So if you’re ready for a better life, then our team here at Desiree T. Palmer, DMD, PA and Associates in Durham, North Carolina, recommends you consider the following tips to help boost your oral health.
Never miss a scheduled visit
The best thing you can do for your oral health is to always be on time for your six-month appointments with Dr. Desiree T. Palmer, DMD . These visits not only help clean your teeth to a depth that you can’t reach at home, but they also allow your dentist to see if you have any potential cavities developing, or other oral health issues like infections or oral cancer.
Great oral health routine
Just like you can’t miss regular appointments, you also can’t miss the time spent at home working on your oral health. This includes brushing twice daily, in addition to flossing and mouthwash use. Without these three activities, your mouth won’t be rid of the bacteria which cause bad breath, gum disease, cavities, and infections.
