Welcome to our blog and thanks for stopping by. Yuma Family Dentist wants to offer you some easy hints when caring for your teeth.

  1. Do: remember you are just wiping the plaque away before it turns to tartar. A gentle brushing at the correct angle can gently wipe the bacteria away. Once plaque has settled into tartar, no amount of scrubbing at home can responsibly remove it.
    Don’t: scrub your teeth and gums until your gums recede and expose parts of your tooth you don’t want exposed.

2. Do: remember your gums need to be cared for. Proper brushing and regular flossing can keep your gums healthy and strong.
Don’: wait to see your a dental professional about sore or bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity or mouth sores.

3. Do: create a routine for brushing and flossing that leaves ample time to spend a full two minutes gently cleaning all the nooks and crannies of your delicate mouth.
Don’t:  forget to have a new floss package ready to use when your current one runs out. Waiting days to get to the store for more can disrupt a good routine.

4. Do:  make regular dental visits for cleaning and examination by a professional. Call us to set up your initial consultation today: 928-783-0804 . Cancer screenings, cavity checks and removal of tartar from the teeth are vital to maintaining a healthy mouth.
