Keeping up with your oral health is essential to having a healthy and beautiful smile. Oftentimes, simple tasks become forgotten or neglected, which is why our team here at James D. Schuette. DDS. in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, is happy to review a healthy oral health care list to help you keep your oral health in tip-top shape.

This list for positive oral health care includes:

1. Brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes a day. By keeping your teeth clean, you can prevent bacteria, plaque, and tartar from developing and giving you serious oral health problems down the road that are both painful and costly.
2. Always floss your teeth at least once per day. Food particles, plaque, bacteria, and even tartar can develop in the hard-to-reach places of your smile which are between your teeth and along the gumline. That is why it is vital to use floss to remove these elements before worse conditions develop.
3. Use an effective mouthwash twice a day. Mouthwash plays an important role in ridding your mouth of bacteria your toothbrush and floss cannot reach. By rinsing your mouth with mouthwash, you are clearing away bacteria and keeping your breath fresh.
4. Always visit your dentist, Dr. James D. Schuette at least twice a year. If you keep up with your dental checkups, there is a significantly higher chance of stopping a serious problem early before serious risks can occur. Our team of experts can help you reverse any oral health care issue and treat any conditions you may have.

As you can see, there are many important reasons to keep a strong oral hygiene routine each day. If you would like to learn more about your oral health or feel it is time for a dental checkup, please call our office today at 816-554-7656. We look forward to helping you.
