Dental Hygiene

While we offer a number of preventive treatments in-office, nothing can replace a good oral hygiene routine at home when it comes to keeping your mouth and smile healthy. Our dentist and team will review your home care routine with you during your regular visits, and we may make recommendations on ways you can improve it. To learn more about dental hygiene in Monument, Colorado, and make your appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Yelle, call Mountain Wellness Dentistry today at 719-488-2375.

What is Our Approach to Dental Hygiene?

During your time at our office, our team works hard to improve your oral health. It is essential, however, that you continue taking care of your smile at home through consistent oral hygiene. Good dental hygiene includes a number of daily habits and practices that help to keep your smile healthy and bright. Our dentist and team recommend that you follow these basic steps to help your smile stay in optimal health:

  • Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste.
  • Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
  • Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
  • Maintain your regular visits with our dentist every six months. During these visits, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments.

When you visit our dentist and team, we will review your dental hygiene habits with you and offer needed information on any additional steps you can take to further improve your oral health. To learn more about dental hygiene and schedule your next appointment at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us today.
