Oral Hygiene

At Brar Family Dentistry, we strive to provide each of our patients with excellent dental treatment. Combining compassionate care, modern technologies, and a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere, we aim to create a great experience for you from start to finish.

No matter your age or the specific dental treatment you visit us for, our team of skilled doctors and highly-trained dental specialists can help you achieve and maintain the healthy, beautiful smile you desire.

Proper Dental Care

While regular check-ups at our Nashua, NH family dentistry are a crucial part of preserving your smile, keeping up with dental hygiene at home is just as vital. Thorough oral hygiene is the best way to prevent cavities and gum disease from forming. As such, we want to stress the importance of oral hygiene, and also give you our recommended best practices for your oral hygiene routine.

Brushing

Brushing your teeth properly is the cornerstone of any dental hygiene routine. In order to get that optimal brush, the first thing you’ll want to do is purchase a toothbrush (manual or electric) with soft bristles. Then, when it is time to brush, apply a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste to the brush.

Process:

From there, move the brush in small, circular motions across the surfaces of your teeth to loosen any food particles or bacteria residing there. Be sure to cover every surface of the teeth—any exposed enamel you don't brush is at risk for developing a cavity.

Our Tips:

Our Nashua dentists advise brushing your teeth at least twice per day—once in the morning after breakfast and again before bed. This routine helps fight off cavities and gum disease, which can wreak havoc on your smile.

Flossing

No dental hygiene routine is complete without flossing, because flossing helps clean the parts of teeth that a toothbrush can’t reach.

How To:

We advise flossing at least once a day, preferably at night to remove any food or debris that may have accumulated during the day. To get started, simply wrap a length of floss around your two index fingers, gently guide the floss in the gap between your teeth all the way down to the gum line (removing any food or debris), then use a new section of the floss for the next set of teeth, repeating the process.

Please Note:

It's normal for the gums to bleed a little the first few times you floss. However, if this persists be sure to schedule an appointment at our Nashua, NH office to discuss the issue with a dentist further.

Diet

An often-overlooked part of dental health is diet. The truth is, though, that what we eat actually has a huge impact on the health of our teeth. Foods high in sugars and starches, like cookies, candy, soda, chips, and crackers can cause a build-up of acid in the mouth that eats away at enamel. Dark colored liquids like coffee, soda, and red wine can also stain the teeth. So, our Nashua family dentist recommends that you stick to a diet of healthier foods, subbing those unhealthy snacks for things like vegetables and low-fat yogurt.
