While regular dental visits are important for maintaining good oral health, what you do at home plays an even bigger role in the health of your teeth and gums. Establishing good oral habits is one of the best things you can do for your teeth! By developing good oral habits at home, you are not only preventing a host of dental issues from arising, but you are also ensuring your smile will remain bright and healthy for many years to come.

At Midlothian Dental Arts, Dr. Stafford is dedicated to improving your oral health. During each office visit, we provide adults and pediatric patients with information and instructions on how to develop good dental hygiene.

Some great ways to improve the health of your teeth and gums include:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day
  • Floss daily
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Limit sugary foods
  • Use a mouth rinse
  • Quit smoked or smokeless tobacco
  • Examine your mouth regularly
  • Get professional teeth cleanings and exams regularly
