Maintain Your Family’s Oral Health

There are very few caregivers who do not get worried often about maintaining their family’s oral health. Though it is indeed a very difficult task, Dr. LaFrom – one of the leading dentists of Cupertino, assures that following a few basic routines can keep a lot of troubles at bay. It is important that you visit your general dentist regularly and practice good oral hygiene at home. 

Dr. LaFrom says that regularly flossing your teeth and brushing them with fluoride toothpaste are important aspects of oral health and should not be neglected. You should also keep a tab on what you eat and when you eat. As most of our snacks comprise of sugar and starch, the plaque bacteria in our mouth react with these to cause the plaque attack. This in turn leads to the formation of cavities. According to many dentists, one of the main reasons that you lose your teeth is gum disease. By maintaining basic oral hygiene, you can keep your natural teeth healthy.  

If your family comprises of children and senior members, then you have to be extra careful. Children of all ages have specific problems but you can take measures to avoid the occurrence of cavities during early childhood. Ensure that your child starts visiting the dentist by the time he or she is one year old. For the senior members, dentures and medications are almost essential aspects of the dental health care.
