Doylestown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/07/2015 -- Many Americans are not educated in proper dental care, but an at-home dental care routine is crucial to maintaining dental health between visits to the dentist. To help their patients stay healthy, American Dental Care in Doylestown has released a set of guidelines for home dental care.
American Dental Care offers a range of dental care services for patients of all ages in the Bucks County area. The American Dental Association recommends that patients visit the dentist twice a year for necessary procedures like cleaning, visual examination and x-rays. Dentist visits are crucial for dental and oral health, and in the meantime, patients can stay healthy between visits by maintaining a proper oral care routine.
American Dental Care recommends that patients brush their teeth twice per day with an ADA-approved, soft-bristled toothbrush. A brush with bristles that are too firm can wear away the gum line or harm the tooth enamel. When brushing, American Dental Care recommends that patients brush while holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and using a gentle, circular motion. It is important to brush the gum line, as well as each tooth's outer, inner and biting surfaces. While brushing the teeth, including the inside of the front teeth, patients should brush the tongue to remove bacteria.
In addition to brushing, flossing is also essential. Patients should floss twice per day in order to prevent damage to the teeth and gums. American Dental Care advises that proper flossing is done with 12-16 inches of dental floss wrapped around either middle finger of the patient's hands, with about 2 inches of space between them. Then, patients should gently guide the floss in between the teeth, making sure to gentle cleaning the spaces between gums and teeth. Regular care will keep teeth healthy in between dental visits.
