West Carrollton dentist offers tips to keep your mouth healthy

When searching for a family dentist in West Carrollton, it’s important to find a practice that believes in prevention as much as providing restorative and cosmetic treatment. Patients who have the best oral health often attribute it to daily oral health habits and twice-yearly appointments that prevent problems from occurring in the first place.

West Carrollton dentist offers tips to keep your mouth healthy

Dr. Daniel Cobb of Alex Bell Dental advises his patients on proper prevention techniques to prevent tooth decay or gum disease, the leading causes of oral health problems. Dr. Cobb and his team ensure that educating the patient is a part of every appointment. They provide tips and helpful information to each patient about things they can do at home to ensure that the mouth stays healthy. Here are some of the top tips:

  • Proper at-home health habits: Most patients recognize that brushing and flossing are the keys to keeping cavities away. However, many still rush through the act or skip them entirely so that they may get a few extra minutes of sleep. Dr. Cobb reminds patients that they should take their time to brush the surface area of each tooth and use floss to get between the teeth every single day. He also suggests that patients use a firm toothbrush but one that’s not harmful to the tooth’s enamel.
  • Think about nutrition: When patients talk about their diets, they often think about their waistlines before their mouths. However, the same foods that can impact your overall health are the ones that can harm your dental health. Those foods and beverages high in sugar, such as soda, fruit juice, candy, or other sweets, can cause a sticky environment to develop in your mouth. This environment is the perfect place for bacteria to grow and decay or gum disease to begin.
  • Keep your appointments: As important as brushing, flossing, and eating well are, it’s also important to maintain a regular schedule of cleanings and checkups with the dentist. At these appointments, you will receive a professional cleaning that removes plaque and bacteria from the teeth’ surfaces and those hard-to-reach areas in the back of the mouth and between the teeth. In addition, Dr. Cobb has the opportunity to examine your mouth and spot any areas of concern.
