Bi-Annual Dental Hygiene Checklist

Holly Klock - Thursday, August 10, 2017 - 



As the summer ends, many of us form to-do lists to help us get back into a routine. However, many have probably forgotten to create their dental hygiene list, which is important to keep in mind as you and your family get busier. We’re here to help, though! We’ve constructed a dental health checklist to get you on the right track.

Your Dental Health Checklist:

  • Brush at least twice a day using fluoride toothpaste, for a total of two minutes, every time. Make sure to clean your tongue, too!
  • Floss at least once a day, especially after dinner or before bedtime.
  • Get a new toothbrush every two months or after you’ve been sick.
  • Avoid sugary foods!
  • Rinse after drinking coffee or wine, so that your teeth don't get stained.
  • Don’t smoke!
  • Visit your dentist twice a year for checkups and cleanings.

Do you have your next dental hygiene appointment scheduled? Your dental health should always be a priority! Contact us today to set up your next visit with us at Maestri Family Dentistry. 337-704-2126

Education is key

Education is a lifelong journey and a truly dedicated family dentist never stops learning. To this end, Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri DDS obtains 75-80 hours of continuing education every year, twice the state’s requirement. In addition, Dr. Maestri and her team focus on educating our patients through hands-on techniques and the open sharing of information. Well-informed patients tend to make better decisions when it comes to at-home dental hygiene and lifestyle choices that impact oral health. If you have any questions about family dentistry or feel that you need some professional guidance, please feel free to ask.
