October is National Dental Hygiene Month – which means it is the perfect time to recognize, celebrate and even improve how you are taking care of your smile. When it comes to your dental hygiene, our team at Majestic Smile Studio believes there is always room for improvement. Here are some valuable tips and recommendations to help you “up your dental hygiene game” and achieve that radiant smile you deserve.

Brushing: The Foundation of Dental Hygiene

Brushing your teeth is the cornerstone of any oral care routine. Make sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day, ideally after meals. Opt for a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, and be gentle yet thorough when brushing. Take your time and pay attention to each tooth’s surface, including the gumline and tongue. Remember to replace your toothbrush every three months or sooner if the bristles become frayed.

Flossing: Don’t Skip This Crucial Step

Flossing may be overlooked by some, but it is crucial for removing plaque and food particles from between your teeth and along the gumline. Floss at least once a day, using gentle back-and-forth motions. If traditional flossing is challenging for you, consider using floss picks or a water flosser, which can be just as effective.

Embrace Mouthwash

Adding an antibacterial mouthwash to your oral care routine can provide an extra layer of protection against gum disease and bad breath. Look for a mouthwash with fluoride and antimicrobial properties, and swish it around your mouth for about 30 seconds after brushing and flossing.

Don’t Forget Your Tongue and Gums

Bacteria love to hide on the surface of your tongue and along your gumline, leading to bad breath and other oral health issues. Gently brush your tongue whenever you brush your teeth, and consider using a tongue scraper for even better results. Additionally, massaging your gums with a soft toothbrush can promote healthy gum tissue.

Adopt a Mouth-Friendly Diet

Your diet plays a significant role in your dental health. Minimize your consumption of sugary and acidic foods and beverages, as they can contribute to tooth decay and enamel erosion. Instead, focus on eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and calcium-rich foods that can strengthen your teeth.

Schedule Regular Dental Check-ups

Regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining good oral health. Visiting your dentist every six months allows for the early detection of any potential dental issues and helps you stay on track with your dental hygiene goals.

Consider Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars to protect them from decay. If you have deep grooves or fissures in your back teeth, ask your dentist if dental sealants could benefit you.

Kick Bad Habits

Smoking and tobacco use not only stain your teeth but also significantly impact your overall oral health. Additionally, chewing on ice, pens, or hard candies can damage your teeth. Quitting these habits can significantly improve your dental hygiene and overall health.

The best dentist I've ever been to, this place is awesome ! As everyone knows, going to a dental office typically isn't a celebratory and pleasant event! However, my experience here changed my outlook on dentistry for the better. Nicole the office manager was very kind and set the appointment for me even though I had to be back to my office by 9 AM and I needed to have an appointment closer to 7 AM, she moved things around and accommodate me and promised I won’t be late to work. Veronica(who administered the X-rays and assisted Dr. Gutierrez) was thorough, kind, and very knowledgeable, which was a great start. Then Dr. Gutierrez came in to conduct the examination and assess what work needed to be performed. The sincerity she exhibited for my well being was admirable and her exceptional skill became immediately evident. I've been to several of the top dentists in Southern California, and this was by far the most impressive experience. Their price point was reasonable, the building was quite nice, and the level of care is top notch. In addition, the hygienist Stephanie was fantastic. She approached your cleaning with the perfect balance of gentleness and rigorousness. The photo studio for before and after pictures was very useful for me to see the huge difference. If you need a new dentist, this is the place. They've gained a lifelong patient in me! I hate going to the dentist. Not because I'm scared, but because I despise mouth and dental related pains. I don’t have high tolerance for pain, dental pain for whatever reason is 10 times more, but I did full sets of veneers and didn’t feel any pain! I highly recommend Majestic Smile Studio and Dr. Gutierrez and her team.
