Tooth enamel is one of the strongest substances in the body, but it is neither indestructable nor renewable. It’s important to brush and floss daily, and have regualr checkups at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City.
We recommend using a toothbrush with soft bristles. Use it after every meal to gently clean away food particles. It is best to brush right after eating. The sooner you remove food debris from your teeth, the better.
Flossing regularly is also essential to keep gums healthy. Whether the food is on tooth surfaces or hidden in between, it is not doing your enamel any good.
As for checkups, an average of about two per year is best. In some cases we’ll want to see a patient more often.
At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City we want each patient to enjoy excellent dental health. People from San Mateo, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay come to our practice for complete general dentistry, and specialties like porcelain veneers. Call our office to schedule your next checkup today!
