Were you aware that brushing your teeth can improve your oral health? Oral health care is important not only because stinky breath is uncomfortable, but also because low oral health can result in more serious conditions. To help you know more about your dental health, our team at Chalfont Dentistry in Chalfont, Pennsylvania, is ecstatic to give you the following information!

First, have you heard that you should brush twice each day for a couple of minutes per brushing? Giving your teeth a detailed cleaning twice daily will strengthen your oral well-being long-term by battling cavities and bacteria that lead to gum disease.

Secondly, be on guard for your gum condition and gum disease, also referred to as periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is dangerous because many people have it without knowing it until they see the painful, expensive effects, including eroded teeth and bleeding, painful gums. If you have hurting or bleeding gums, please visit Dr. Sindhu Gundabathula as soon as you can so we can help you!

Finally, don’t forget that flossing your teeth goes perfectly with brushing your teeth, so ensure that you are flossing after brushing every night. This will help your teeth and gums stay clean in the difficult-to-reach corners brush bristles can’t find. If you have any questions about your oral health, or if you would like to come in for a dental cleaning, please call us today at 215-583-2425 to set up an appointment. Our friendly staff will be excited to hear from you!
