Even though it may seem like winter is just arriving for us in Northern Nevada, spring is actually just a few days away. For many of us, it is a time to thoroughly clean your home, get rid of excess clutter, throw out broken toys, and get a breath of fresh air (both literally and figuratively). Your smile should be no different! Even if you are the most dedicated brusher and floss on a daily basis, routine cleanings at the dentist should be a part of your important spring routine. We have some spring dental cleaning tips while you wait for your next dental appointment!

Get to Cleaning!

Regular cleanings help remove plaque and tartar which builds up over time and is nearly impossible to remove with brushing and flossing. We use a special tool to help remove the unwanted plaque. Without a regularly scheduled cleaning, plaque and tartar can attack the gums, which can lead to gingivitis or a number of other complications.

Spring Cleaning Tools for Your Oral Health

You should get a new toothbrush every three to four months (or more often if you’ve been sick recently). No matter what kind of toothbrush you have, bristles can get frayed which causes your toothbrush to lose its effectiveness. Bacteria can also house itself in between your bristles after some time, and you don’t want to put that into your mouth! If you keep your regular dental appointments every six months, these visits can serve as a helpful reminder that your toothbrush may need to be replaced.

Need new toothpaste? Now is the time to make sure to get a toothpaste that works best for you. Everyone is different, so your toothpaste should fit exactly what you need! Your dentist can help you determine the best option for your dental needs.

You can’t forget about floss! Usually, it doesn’t matter what kind you get as long as you’re sure to use it every day! Floss will help loosen and remove plaque beneath the gum line that could potentially lead to inflammation or gum disease.

Once you have the right cleaning tools and have visited us for your own spring dental cleaning, you are on your way to great oral health.
