The American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA), has been celebrating National Dental Hygiene Month during October. The ADHA encourages people to "Brush. Floss. Rinse. Chew...Keep it Clean, Keep it Healthy!" and offers some great tips for a quick and effective home oral health routine, below:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oral Health Routine at Home⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Brushing your teeth twice daily is the most important thing you can do to diminish the accumulation of plaque and the potential for other oral problems such as cavities and gingivitis.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Flossing once daily removes plaque and food from beneath the gums and between teeth that brushing alone cannot remove. Tooth decay and gum disease often begin in these areas.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Rinsing your mouth with an antibacterial, non-alcohol based mouthwash kills plaque and gingivitis germs that brushing and flossing do not catch. We recommend using a mouthwash with the ADA Seal of Acceptance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Chewing sugar-free gum helps produce saliva, which battles cavities. The gum also neutralizes plaque, strengthens enamel, and removes remaining food. It is especially important to chew gum after eating or drinking. #stevenrbakerdds#prairievillagedentist#pvdentist#kansascitydentist#korwhitening#pvdentist#srbdds#kansascity#prairievillage#corinthsquare#cerecdoctors#cerecsirona#cerec1visitcrowns
A dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns, bridgework or dentures. They are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong, and biocompatible, which means they are not rejected by the body. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device. If you think you may be a candidate for a dental implant, call our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Baker today. 913.381.4700 or click the link in our bio to visit our website ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
