Dentist Orland Park, Palos Heights, Palos Park, Lockport Daily Tips for Great Oral Hygiene

Orland Park, IL Dental Tips

Did you know that bacteria may live inside your mouth in the form of plaque, causing cavities and gingivitis, which could ultimately lead to periodontal disease? In order to prevent this from happening, you must maintain a top notch oral hygiene routine. Here are some tips to follow to keep your teeth cavity free!


  1. Brush, Brush, Brush. Brushing your teeth is the most effective way to get rid of plaque build up in the teeth. Make sure you brush at least twice a day for at least three minutes each time. Taking your time while you brush is imperative to the actual process.
  2. Floss. After you brush your teeth, make sure you floss to remove all of the build up in between your teeth!
  3. Rinse. Rinse with a ADA approved mouthwash to finalize plaque removal, and to leave your mouth as fresh as ever.

As simple as it sounds, these three tips will improve your oral health by a lot if done properly every day!
