When it comes to keeping your mouth clean, no one knows better than your dentist. Regular checkups and cleanings are important to keeping your teeth healthy and beautiful. But what can you do in between cleanings to make sure your smile stays perfect? Here are the top 5 oral hygiene tips to help keep you on track.
- Proper Brushing Technique – You know you have to brush twice a day, but are you sure you’re doing it correctly? The most effective way to brush your teeth is to position your brush at a 45 degree angle while keeping the bristles in contact with both the teeth and gums and brushing in an up and down motion. This technique can be done on the inside and outside of your teeth.
- Flossing – Flossing daily helps to remove particles of food that may have gotten caught in those tight spaces between teeth. Lack of flossing regularly can cause cavities and lead to decay.
When it comes to having the most cutting edge technology, we at Cannon Park Dental strive to always provide the best for our clients. From top of the line equipment to the best service, we are always putting excellence first. This includes our CEREC custom crown technology by Dentsply Sirona.

Toddlers and Children
When children start to have their teeth come in, it’s time to switch to a toothbrush with little soft bristles. Choose a toothbrush with a smaller handle so it fits in the child’s hands and is not intimidating. Allo
