Your teeth and gums rely on you to make the right dental care decisions, especially when you get busy during the summer. Keeping up a good dental routine not only helps your mouth stay healthy and bright but also sets a good example for your child. Be sure to help them, especially at a young age to brush and floss daily.

Dr. Christopher Layton and our dental professionals in Oceanside, California, want you to keep regular dental habits to ensure your mouth stays healthy and your teeth stay strong. Visit our dental clinic twice a year for your biannual checkup and deep cleaning. Feel free to ask any questions related to your dental health and care when you’re at your appointment, or give us a call at 760-842-5876.

Flossing and brushing are the top two important tools to defeating plaque buildup and preventing cavities. Mouthwash is another great tool to reach nooks of the mouth to prevent buildup. An amazing rule to keep when brushing is the 2×2 rule: brush twice a day for two minutes. Brush on all the sides of your teeth as well as the tongue and roof of your mouth. Look for the seal of approval from the American Dental Association (ADA) when purchasing dental products.

Form a C-shape when flossing in between your teeth to get the best angle to remove plaque and particles. Schedule a consultation or biannual appointments at Calavera Hills Dental today to get the best results for a healthy and bright smile!
