Dr. James E. Cox and Dr. Adam Z. Cox of Cox Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Jasper, AL, want to ask you an important question: Do you know what good oral hygiene consists of?
The sad truth is, a lot of people in Jasper might not.
For example, most people know to brush their teeth and floss. Both Dr. James and Dr. Adam Cox agree brushing and flossing are important habits to maintain. But there’s a little more to it than just scrubbing away with your toothbrush.
The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth at least twice daily, using a fluoride toothpaste and cleaning between your teeth at least once a day with dental floss or some other interdental cleaner. It is also important to replace your toothbrush every 2-3 months. The ADA also recommends using dental products that carry the ADA seal of approval.
The other part of the oral hygiene equation is regular dental visits. In fact, it’s very important that you see your dentist in Jasper regularly to maintain optimum oral hygiene and health. No matter how diligent you are, your brushing and flossing cannot get to all areas of your teeth and gums. Worse, if you are not using proper technique, you may be damaging your oral health rather than preserving it. You should visit your Jasper dentists, Dr. James or Dr. Adam Cox, at least twice a year.
When you visit Dr. James or Dr. Adam Cox, you are going to receive a thorough check up. They are going to be able to see things you don’t because they are going to have the training and the technology to do so. They are going to be able to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, hitting those places you can’t. They are also going to be able to make recommendations and help you with daily oral hygiene habits.
