When it comes to anything you hope to gain in life, having a routine set in place will likely help you achieve your goal faster and more thoroughly. Routines need not be complicated or overly involved to be successful, they simply need to be carried out. For those who want to lose weight, they must adhere to a diet and exercise routine. The same is true for those who want to protect their oral health and ensure that they keep their teeth for a lifetime. Developing a good dental routine is important and easy to implement. Below are tips for how to develop a good dental routine that will successfully protect your entire mouth.

  • Floss daily. Flossing is the most important part of a good dental routine, yet it is also the most neglected. Many people do not like flossing because it requires extra time and work, yet this extra effort is what can save your teeth from decay. Bacteria-laden plaque becomes trapped between the teeth, and because toothbrush bristles cannot reach these areas, floss is the only tool that can effectively clean these areas.
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Brushing is important because it loosens and removes plaque from the surfaces of the teeth. Brushing with a fluoride toothpaste helps to protect the teeth from cavities and decay, also keeping your breath fresh. Brush at least twice a day, after meals when you can.
  • Rinse your toothbrush well. As your toothbrush removes plaque, bacteria become trapped in the bristles. Rinsing your toothbrush off under fast, running water helps to rinse bacteria away. It is also advised to allow your toothbrush to dry in an upright position so that it dries quickly and does not provide an ideal environment for remaining bacteria to thrive.
  • Replace your toothbrush often. Cleaning your mouth with a dirty tool makes no sense, which is why your dentist gives you a new toothbrush at each visit. No matter how well you rinse your toothbrush after each use, it will eventually harbor growing bacteria. You should replace your toothbrush every 3-6 months.
  • Visit the dentist twice a year. While what you do at home to care for your teeth is important, nothing can take the place of a professional cleaning and exam. Regular dental visits help keep your mouth clean and allow your dentist to identify areas of concern before they damage your smile.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
