If you are looking for ways to keep your smile healthy, then you have come to the right place. Our professional dental team here at Sylvan S. Stern, DDS in Southfield, Michigan, takes pride in the quality of our care,and we’re happy to give you some information about what you can do to keep your mouth happy.

Here are some tips:

1. Always brush your teeth twice a day, for at least two minutes a day. If you do, you can prevent plaque from building up and creating serious oral health problems like tooth loss and gum disease.
2. Floss your teeth at least once per day. Many food particles, plaque, bacteria, and even tartar can build up in the hard-to-reach places of your mouth, such as between your teeth and deep along the gum line. That is why it is important to use floss to remove these elements. Flossing choices include waxed and unwaxed floss, and water flossers.
3. Use a fluoridated, cavity-fighting mouthwash in your routine. Mouthwash plays a role in cleaning your mouth of bacteria that a toothbrush and dental floss cannot reach.
4. Visit your dentist, Dr. Sylvan Stern semi-annually. If you keep your dental appointments, there is a better chance of stopping a health problem early before serious risks like gum disease develop. Thankfully, our professional staff of experts can help you with any oral health care issue and treat any conditions you may have.

As you can see, these four simple steps can improve your oral health in many ways, and work to keep your smile fresh and healthy. If you would like to set up a dental check-up, please call us today at 248-559-0995 to set up an appointment. Our team is willing to assist you in any way we can.
