Mastering Oral Hygiene

At San Mateo Dental Care, Dr. Glenn Belen and our dedicated team are committed to providing the community of San Mateo, CA, with the knowledge and tools necessary for achieving the best possible oral hygiene. Located at 135 N San Mateo Dr, this blog will cover advanced techniques and tools that significantly enhance daily oral care practices.

Advanced Brushing Techniques

Effective brushing is more than just a routine; it’s essential for preventing dental diseases and maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Dr. Belen advises using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste to gently clean all tooth surfaces, emphasizing the need for brushing at least twice a day for two minutes each session. Proper brushing techniques, such as using a 45-degree angle at the gums and gentle circular motions, can significantly improve plaque removal and overall oral health.

The Importance of Interdental Cleaning

Interdental cleaning is crucial for removing debris and plaque from between the teeth, where a regular toothbrush cannot reach. Dr. Belen recommends daily flossing as the gold standard, supplemented by water flossers or interdental brushes, especially for patients with braces or dental bridges.

Choosing the Right Tools

Selecting the appropriate tools is vital for effective oral hygiene. This section reviews the benefits of various types of toothbrushes, including manual and electric options, and discusses the right choice of dental floss and mouthwashes based on individual needs and oral health conditions.
