Do you believe that dentures are an inevitability for everyone? There may have been a time where this was true, but that is no longer the case. Dental care has come a long way since then.
Today, you have several options should you lose a tooth, plus you have more options when it comes to healing a tooth and keeping it, than you ever did in the past. It is important that you understand how to care for your teeth to keep them for as long as possible. The better you care for your teeth, the less likely you are to ever have to wear dentures.
How to Best Care for Your Original Teeth
If you want to avoid wearing dentures, then you need to be careful when it comes to the teeth you were born with. First, this means taking the time to brush them two times each day. This is a very important part of helping your teeth last. Next, you also need to make sure to floss them properly at least once daily. This is not a now-and-again style hygiene recommendation.
Flossing needs to be part of your daily oral hygiene routine. Finally, you also need to make sure that you rinse your entire mouth with mouthwash once per day. This should be done after flossing if you want the best benefit out of it.
You also need to make sure that you see your dentist every six months for a cleaning, exam, and to repair any issues with your teeth right away.
