Most people know that they should visit their Elk Grove Village, IL dentist twice each year for examinations and cleanings, but maintaining their oral health in between visits might dentist elk grove village ilnot be as obvious. In addition to brushing twice each day and flossing once, there are a number of things people can do to maintain their oral health between trips to the dentist:

Eat nutritious, healthy foods

Many crunchy foods are full of fiber, and these stimulate saliva in the mouth, helping to wash away bacteria. Other foods, such as carrots, celery, and broccoli, actually act as natural abrasives, helping to keep teeth clean. 

Avoid soda and other sweetened beverages and drink plenty of water

Since most municipalities add fluoride to the water, it’s a good idea to drink tap water.

Be self-aware of any changes in your mouth

If your gums are bleeding when you brush or floss, this could be an early sign of gum disease. If a tooth is extra sensitive, this could mean you have a cavity that needs to be filled. And if you are in any kind of oral pain, always call your dentist: Pain in the mouth is never normal!
