Allentown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2013 -- Visiting the dentist for a monthly cleaning or dental x-ray is only half the battle.

This season, American Dental Care in Allentown is now offering home care dental tips for all patients.
One of the most basic tips that some patients forget about from time to time, is brushing their teeth. American Dental Care in Allentown recommends that each patient brushes their teeth twice a day, once after the first meal in the morning, and again before going to bed. Patients should brush their teeth with an ADA approved brush and use approved toothpaste as well. The approved tooth brush and paste ensures that teeth will remain clean and healthy throughout the day.
American Dental Care in Allentown also recommends that patients floss their teeth on a daily basis. Flossing ensures that the plaque between teeth and gums are removed efficiently. Even though tooth brushes clean away most plaque, some remains unhidden. Flossing ensure all of it is removed because it cleans the smaller spaces and prevents plaque colonies from building up over an extended period of time.
