A clean mouth is a happy mouth. At Vitangeli Dental in Englewood, we want to provide some straightforward tips for dental hygiene, so that you can have a clean, happy mouth.

1.Do… remember you are just cleaning the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the proper angle can gently clean the bacteria away. Once plaque has progressed into tartar, no amount of scrubbing at home can remove it.

Don’t… scour your teeth and gums until your gums recede and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want unprotected.

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

Don’t… hesitate to see 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 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 critical routine.

4.Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional.

Don’t… worry if you don’t have the healthiest of mouths. We can get you back on track.

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

Don’t… put off your next appointment.
