How do I take care of my teeth at home?
At Lake City Way Dental Center, we believe that achieving a healthier, more radiant smile begins at home. That is why our friendly dentist, Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta, offers each of our patients detailed oral hygiene instructions to help you and your family know how to properly care for your smile when not at our office. Patient education is an important part of our dental practice, and we do all we can to help you enjoy taking care of your smile as much as we do.
Good oral hygiene begins with brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day and eating a well-balanced diet, limiting yourself on sugary and acidic snacks. Using recommended dental products, such as toothpaste and mouthwashes, is also important. We will give you the time and attention you deserve when reviewing your dental history and discussing how we can help you improve your oral hygiene habits.
Why is good oral hygiene important?
Good oral hygiene is essential to promoting lasting overall oral health. By practicing good oral hygiene habits, you prevent decay from forming and keep your smile aesthetically pleasing. The more damaged teeth become, the more pain you experience and the more costly the treatments. To prevent this and to learn more about dental hygiene in Seattle, Washington, please call our office today. We are excited to help you achieve a healthier, happier smile!
