When to Visit the Dentist (cont.)

Routine Dental Care

Good dental care is the best way to prevent nontraumatic problems with your teeth.

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and floss at least once a day.
  • Frequent cleaning of your teeth and check-ups every 6 months with your dentist or dental hygienist are also important.
  • Prepare for dental emergencies if you experience one by having an established relationship with a dentist. That way, you are more likely to get quick and proper treatment when needed.
