Home Dental Care
At Dentistry of South Florida, we know that a healthy and beautiful smile doesn’t end when you leave our office. Excellent oral health is a partnership between patient and dentist.
To maintain the healthy mouth that you will have after your cleaning and any restorative procedures, we recommend brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing at least once per day. We suggest using an ADA approved fluoride toothpaste with a soft-bristle brush that fits your mouth comfortably, allowing you to reach all areas easily, replacing the toothbrush every three months or sooner if the bristles become worn and frayed. This daily routine will remove plaque from your teeth and remove food particles from in between the teeth. Our motto is “floss the teeth you want to keep!”
We always encourage discussing your oral health with your dentist and dental hygienist, and asking them about which oral care products will be most effective for you, as needs vary for each patient.
Some excelllent products for home dental care that we carry in our office include:
- Prescription fluoride toothpaste or rinse
- Medicated mouth rinse to control bacteria
- Advanced electric tooth brushes such as the RotoDent
- And more… Be sure to ask at your next visit!
Our office serves patients throughout South Florida including Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Coconut Creek, and Coral Springs.
