Chompers. Pearly Whites. Dents. Gnashers. Grill. While you can switch up what you call them, at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, we advise you to never switch up a well-engrained oral health routine.
Practicing proper oral hygiene daily with pay off throughout your life. You’ll prevent tooth decay, plaque, and gum disease, not to mention bad breath.
By brushing your teeth twice every day, you remove the plaque that causes cavities. Plaque is that soft and sticky film that builds up on your teeth, a process that happens around the clock. It’s caused by food debris and bacteria.
It’s just as important to floss at least once a day. Flossing gets the plaque between your teeth, where your toothbrush cannot reach.
Scheduling twice-yearly checkups at our office is also very important. Regular checkups can prevent cavities and gum disease. Each checkup also includes an oral cancer screening.
Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime! At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City we want the best possible dental health for each of our patients. Our services include general and restorative dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!
