Were you aware that brushing and flossing your teeth can improve your oral health? Dental health is important not only because having putrid breath is awkward, but also because weak oral health can result in serious conditions. To help you understand more about your dental health, the team at Taylor Family Dentistry in Mason, Ohio, is happy to share with you some information!

First, did you know you should brush your teeth twice a day for at least a couple of minutes per session? It’s true! Giving your teeth a detailed cleaning twice daily will help strengthen your oral health long-term by fighting cavities and bacteria that lead to gum disease.

Second, beware of gum health and gum disease, also referred to as periodontal disease. Gum disease is dangerous because lots of people have it without realizing it until they see the painful, expensive effects, such as sensitive teeth and red, painful gums. If you have hurting or bloody gums, come see Dr. Jennifer E. Taylor as soon as you can so we can get your smile back on track!

Lastly, don’t forget that flossing your teeth goes together with brushing your teeth, so make sure you are flossing your teeth after brushing every night. This will help your teeth stay clean in the hard-to-reach crevices your brush bristles can’t find. If you have any questions about your oral health, or if you would like to come in for a dental cleaning, please call us today at 513.229.7801 to set up an appointment. Our friendly staff will be excited to hear from you!
