Daily oral hygiene habits are the key to a healthy smile for the long run!
Baltimore dentist Dr. Lazer emphasizes the importance of routine dental care- both at home and in his Owings Mills dental office.
Brushing your teeth for approximately two minutes twice per day – and flossing once a day- will go a long way in the prevention of dental health problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Both of these can eventually lead to complex dental health problems- and even tooth loss! Brush your teeth with a soft bristled toothbrush to avoid irritating the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Be sure to brush along he gum line too- this is where plaque can often build up causing gum disease.
Visiting Dr. Lazer twice per year for preventive care will enable he and his staff to spot developing oral health problems in the early stages, when they can be treated conservatively. Dr. Lazer may recommend specific products to be used between visits based on your oral health to help prevent further problems and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
