At Davis Family Dental Care in Bedford, TX, we understand our patients and their oral health needs. We aim to provide each of our patients with patient-focused, comprehensive dental care. Bedford dentist Drs. Dakota Davis, Paul Davis, and Laura Drennan encourage patients to visit Davis Family Dental Care at least twice a year for a routine preventive care visit. Preventive care is one of the foundations of a great dental practice. Although it is encouraged for patients to practice great preventive care habits by visiting our office at least twice a year, we also encourage patients to practice great preventive care at home, which starts with developing a great oral hygiene routine. Most patients remember to brush and floss their teeth in the morning because no one wants to be reminded that they have bad breath throughout the day. However, at night, people just go to bed without taking care of their teeth first. No worries, we have compiled a few tips to help improve your nightly oral hygiene routine and get you one step closer to a brighter, whiter smile.

Simple Tips for Your Nightly Oral Hygiene Routine

Developing a nightly oral hygiene routine doesn’t have to be difficult or tedious. Simply following these tips can help improve your oral health and get you one step closer to that bright, healthy smile you’ve always wanted.

Brush your teeth before bed or right after dinner: Brushing your teeth doesn’t only help eliminate bad breath, but it also helps remove bacteria, debris, and food particles that accumulate in the mouth throughout the day. Brushing helps protect your smile from complex problems like tooth decay and plaque.

Don’t forget to floss before bed: Many patients forget to incorporate flossing into their normal oral hygiene routine. Flossing helps remove bacteria and debris between the teeth. Not flossing can lead to tooth decay, cavities, and even gum disease.

Use an ADA approved mouthwash: Mouthwash also helps remove debris and bacteria that accumulates in the mouth throughout the day. Mouthwash also helps keep your breath fresh by removing bacteria in the mouth.

These 3 simple steps can help improve the health of your smile over time. Also regularly visiting Davis Family Dental Care in Bedford, TX can help make sure your smile is bright and healthy. Please feel free to schedule an appointment online or call 817.382.8869
