Dentists are people, too. Believe it or not, there are nights when we are so tired, we’d like nothing better than to just get into bed… without brushing and flossing our teeth. Of course, we never do that because we’ve seen the consequences to patients’ smiles when they skip oral hygiene care at home. In Plano, dental cleaning is imperative in the morning and even more so at night in order to remove the particles of food that bacteria might feed on.
When you sleep at night, you rarely swallow. This is because saliva production decreases during sleep. But because you’re not swallowing, the number of bacteria in your mouth increases. Nighttime oral care helps to eliminate the bits of food that get left behind throughout the day that bacteria can feast on during the night. Your nightly oral hygiene routine should include brushing, flossing and an antiseptic mouth rinse. Continue reading to find out how you can best perform each of these important steps.

Literally, because with missing teeth you may not be able to eat the foods you enjoy most, such as those delicious summer picnic foods—corn on the cob, a thick steak or fresh and crunchy summer fruits and vegetables.
