If you read our blog post on the basics of tooth enamel loss last week, then you already know that tooth enamel is one of the strongest substances in the body. You also know it is neither indestructible nor renewable. It’s important to brush and floss daily, and have regular checkups at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA.
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 Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA, we want each patient to enjoy excellent dental health. Patients from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga come to our office for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
