Raise Your Dental IQ

Raise Your Dental IQ

There are little things you can do every day to raise your Dental IQ and benefit your smile. One simple lesson from Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla involves bacteria, and everyone’s mouth has a lot of it.

But don’t worry, bacteria per se isn’t the problem. The critical thing is the balance of bacteria. This is where brushing and flossing come into play. Brush and floss properly each day and you will have a better chance of keeping the appropriate balance.

Other precautions you can take:

  • Wash your hands before you brush and floss. No exceptions!
  • Keep your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible. (Also, close the lid of the toilet before you flush!)
  • Replace that toothbrush. When it comes to your toothbrush, don’t get sentimental. Get a new one every three to four months.

If you can avoid the unhealthy balance of bacteria in your mouth, you can minimize the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

At Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla we want the best possible dental health for all our patients. We offer complete general dentistry, and patients from Solano Beach, Del Mar, and Claremont also come to our office for cosmetic dentistry and much more. Schedule an appointment with us today!
