If Only I Had Taken Care Of My Teeth…

\To maintain healthy teeth, a lifetime of care is required. This includes using appropriate dental care products and being conscious of your daily actions.

Our professional dentist at Arden Dental Care in Sacramento, CA not only provides the best dental treatments based on your needs but also crucial tips on how to maintain your teeth.

How to Brush Your Teeth Properly

How you clean your teeth is crucial. In fact, brushing your teeth improperly is almost as terrible as not brushing at all. Plaque that is not removed can harden, resulting in calculus development and gum disease.

  • Brush your front teeth gently and briefly, inserting the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gums.
  • Brush your teeth on the outside, paying specific attention to the back molars and top chewing surfaces.
  • Turn your toothbrush upside down to reach the internal surface of your upper front teeth. To get the interior of your lower front teeth, flip it around.
  • Brush your tongue to get rid of any bacteria or plaque that may have escaped the brushing process.
  • Into a clean sink, spit the toothpaste, saliva, and water. Rinse your mouth with cool water after that.

Other Ways to Keep Your Teeth Healthy


We all know that flossing takes a lot of time. But keep in mind that even after cleaning your teeth, at least 40% of the surface of your teeth remains untreated. Flossing can help remove food particles and other hazardous elements that brushing alone cannot remove. It also enables you to clean deep between the teeth where a toothbrush or mouthwash cannot reach. 

Using Fluoride Toothpaste

Fluoride is an effective anti-cavity agent. It fights bacteria that cause decay while also acting like a protective layer for your teeth.

Sugar Reduction and Other Lifestyle Suggestions

Maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating well, not smoking, and limiting your intake of alcohol and sugar. It benefits your entire body, including your teeth, gums, and mouth.

Visiting Your Dentist Every Half Year

Your everyday habits are extremely important to your overall oral health. Even the most conscientious brushers and flossers, however, need to see a dentist regularly. A dentist will be able to not only remove plaque and tartar accumulation but will also be able to recognize any problems and recommend timely treatment.
