Welcome to our blog and thanks for stopping by. OKC Smiles wants to deliver some easy tips for oral hygiene.

1.Do… remember you are just clearing the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle toothbrushing at the appropriate angle can gently clean the bacteria away. Once plaque has hardened into tartar, no measure of scrubbing at home can responsibly remove it.

Don’t… vigorously scour your teeth and gums until your gums loosen and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want unprotected.

2.Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Thorough brushing and regular flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.

Don’t… hesitate to see your dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth pain or mouth sores.

3.Do… establish a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves adequate time to spend a full two minutes cautiously cleaning all the nooks and crannies of your mouth.

Don’t… forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can disrupt a key routine.

4.Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional. Call OKC Smiles to set up your initial visit today. 405-634-7303 We’ve got the phones ready! Cancer screenings, cavity checks, and removal of tartar from the teeth are vital for maintaining a healthy mouth.

Don’t… worry if you don’t have the healthiest of mouths. OKC Smiles can help you get back on track. Whether you’re looking for sedation dentistry, restorative dentistry, or family dentistry, we can restore what has been lost or counsel with you on the best options.

5.Do… enjoy your mouth and all the wonders it is capable of.
