    Long Beach Oral Hygiene

    What is Good Long Beach Oral Hygiene?
    Good oral hygiene results in a mouth that looks and smells healthy. This means:

    • Your teeth are clean and free of debris
    • Gums are pink and do not hurt or bleed when you brush or floss
    • Bad breath is not a constant problem

    If your gums do hurt or bleed while brushing or flossing, or you are experiencing persistent bad breath, see your dentist. Any of these conditions may indicate a problem.

    Your Long Beach dentist or hygienist can help you learn good oral hygiene techniques and can help point out areas of your mouth that may require extra attention during brushing and flossing.

    How is Good Oral Hygiene Practiced? 
    Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good, they make it possible to eat and speak properly. Good oral health is important to your overall well-being.

    Daily preventive care, including proper brushing and flossing, will help stop problems before they develop and is much less painful, expensive, and worrisome than treating conditions that have been allowed to progress.

    In between regular visits to the Long Beach dentist, there are simple steps that each of us can take to greatly decrease the risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems. These include:

    • Brushing thoroughly twice a day and flossing daily
    • Eating a balanced diet and limiting snacks between meals
    • Using dental products that contain fluoride, including toothpaste
    • Rinsing with a fluoride mouth rinse if your dentist tells you to
    • Making sure that your children under 12 drink fluoridated water or take a fluoride supplement if they live in a non-fluoridated area.

  • Wisdom teeth present potential problems when they are misaligned – they can position themselves horizontally, be angled toward or away from the second molars or be angled inward or outward. Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone, or nerves.
