Avoiding a One-Sized Approach to Oral Health

Posted on 12/10/2016 by Fady Ebid

Your teeth are unique, and as such, require a unique way to keep them healthy. If you try using the same basic treatments that other people use, then you could wind up with a lot of oral health problems down the line.

You need to make sure that you are taking proper care of your teeth, despite what other people are having done to their mouths.

Even Twins Need Unique Oral Health Treatments

Every single mouth is unique. No two people are going to have the exact same problems, cavities, or issues with their mouths. This means that a one-sized approach to taking care of your mouth is going to fall short. Just because you are more (or less) prone to cavities than your sibling, parent, or child doesn't mean that you and that person can have the same basic care.

Some things are perfectly fine as one-sized approaches for most people. This includes flossing at least once per day, brushing at least twice per day, and seeing your dentist at least every six months. But even that approach is not right for everyone. Some people need to see their dentist every 3-4 months, while others need to brush 3-4 times each day.

Take your oral health seriously, and work directly with your dentist to make sure that the treatment plan you are using is right for your specific set of circumstances. Take care of your entire mouth and see your dentist as often as he or she tells you to come in. This will help you get the most out of your oral health, and allow you to have the healthiest mouth possible.

Go in and see your dentist at your next appointment, and find out what they think makes your mouth unique. It may give you insight as to what to watch most closely with your mouth.

Contact our office today if you have any questions about your oral health.
