Certain dental procedures can be extremely costly, as you are probably well aware. Don’t worry though, there are a few simple ways to avoid those costs—take care of your teeth! By caring for your teeth as recommended, you can avoid requiring future expensive dental procedures.
Often people who do not care or their teeth experience decay, gum disease, and many other issues. As a result, they tend to need expensive and time-consuming dental procedures. To avoid needing these procedures, be sure to brush your teeth twice daily, for two times a day. It is also extremely important to floss at least once a day.
Not only is it important to brush, but it is important to be sure you are using the best toothbrush for your mouth. Ask Dr. Patel what kind of bristles he recommends for you—flat, hollow, zig-zag, etc. Also, be sure that you are using a soft-bristled tooth brush; otherwise, you can cause further damage to your teeth and gums.
You should also let your toothbrush air dry between uses and keep it at an upright position to allow air circulation. This will help to avoid bacteria growth.
You should also use some sort of mouthwash, however, if you are over the age of 50 be sure to use alcohol-free mouthwash. Adults 50+ tend to have more sensitive teeth and gums, and using mouthwash containing alcohol may irritate and inflame the gums.
Be sure to keep up with you dental checkups. It is recommended, no matter the age, to visit your Keller TX dentist at least once every 6 months! By folloqing this advice, you can avoid needing expensive dental work in the future.
