Were you aware flossing and brushing your teeth can improve your oral health? Dental health care is important not only because having putrid breath is embarrassing, but also because weak oral health can cause grave conditions. To help you know more about your dental health, the team at First Care Dental in Louisville, Kentucky, is excited to give you some information!

First, did you know that you should brush your teeth twice a day for at least 120 seconds per session? It’s true! Giving your teeth an exhaustive cleaning twice per day will help strengthen your oral well-being in the long-term by battling cavities and bacteria.

Additionally, be on guard for gum health and gum disease, also referred to as periodontal disease. Gum disease is risky because many people have it without knowing it until they recognize the hurtful, expensive effects, such as lost teeth and red, painful gums. If you have hurting or bleeding gums, make an appointment with Dr. Ben Taylor as soon as you can so we can give you professional treatment.

Lastly, remember that flossing your teeth goes perfectly with brushing your teeth, to ensure that you are flossing your teeth after brushing every night. This will help your teeth stay clean in the difficult-to-reach spots your brush bristles can’t find. If you have any questions about your oral health, or if you would like to come in for a dental cleaning, please call us today at 502-893-5677 to set up an appointment. Our friendly staff will be excited to hear from you!
