Adhering to a healthy dental routine each and every day is extremely important. The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly disrupted everyone’s normal daily schedules and knocked structure as we had known it right off of its proverbial feet. Unfortunately, oral hygiene regimes have been affected like everything else and have sort of fallen a lot lower on the list of priorities nowadays. Dr. Lattinelli offers a number of smart suggestions that can get everyone back on track in terms of maintaining a healthy dental routine that is conducive to taking care of overall health as well.
Getting enough sleep contributes to good health of the immune system. It is important to set the times you go to bed and wake up to ensure you have the appropriate number of hours of sleep that your body requires to feel energized.
Brushing teeth twice per day along with flossing once a day is recommended. Utilizing a timer is a practical and fun method to be certain that children brush their teeth for a minimum of two minutes.
ticking with a diet that eliminates sugary foods and beverages is highly beneficial to every facet of your health. Junk food, including sodas, only provides empty calories without nutritional benefits; therefore, fruits and vegetables are much better options than cookies and chips when it comes to snacking.
It is vital to get young children into the habit of reaching for water rather than unhealthy sugary drinks in order to quench their thirst.
Schedule dental appointments every six months for routine checkups and cleanings for yourself and your family.
Contact your dentist immediately if you notice any odd or unusual changes to your oral health or if any type of problem occurs in between your regular visits.
