Learn the do's and don'ts of oral hygiene with Alaska Premier Dental Group.

Vigorously scouring your teeth and gums until your gums recede and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want vulnerable. Alaska Premier Dental Group wants to deliver some uncomplicated tips for oral hygiene.

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

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

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

Don’t… wait to see your dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity, or mouth sores.

3. Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves sufficient time to spend a full two minutes delicately 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.
