Your Path to Optimal Oral Health at North Thornton Dental

At North Thornton Dental, we stand by the belief that the key to maintaining excellent oral health lies in the synergy between professional dental care and diligent home hygiene practices. Under the guidance of our dental experts, including Dr. Shvets, we emphasize the critical role of routine brushing and flossing in preventing tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues. By adopting a comprehensive approach to dental hygiene, you can significantly lower the risk of dental problems and pave the way for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Daily Brushing and Flossing

Dr. Shvets recommends brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily as the cornerstone of a robust dental hygiene regimen. This practice is vital for removing plaque and bacteria, safeguarding your teeth and gums against decay and disease.

Fluoride and Nutrition

Enhance your oral health with fluoride-rich toothpaste and mouth rinses, and maintain a balanced diet to support dental well-being. Limiting sugary snacks and incorporating nutritious foods helps protect against tooth decay and strengthens your teeth's enamel.

Post-Meal Practices

Drinking a glass of water after meals can help rinse away sugars and food particles, minimizing plaque buildup. Following acidic foods or drinks, wait about 30 minutes before brushing to allow your saliva to neutralize the acids and protect your enamel.
