Welcome to our blog and thanks for stopping by. Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS wants to deliver some uncomplicated tips for oral hygiene.

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

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

2.Do… remember your gums need to be cared for. Careful brushing and daily 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 carefully 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 halt a key routine.

4.Do… schedule twice-yearly dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional.
