What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and steamed broccoli? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging trail? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are doing great? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no tooth decay, we salute you.
At Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS, we encourage everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in their definition of healthy living in Monkton.
Healthy Living in Monkton
When done consistently, brushing and flossing are a vital component of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to protect your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and make certain you reach all the surfaces. Flossing should be done once a day and is required for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Monkton stores, so experiment until you find one you like.
