Daily routines can vary widely depending on the individual. Some people shower before work, some prefer to shower after. Some wake up in the morning and they lurch for a cup of coffee to give them a boost, while others bound out of bed with zeal grabbing a protein shake on their way to their morning workout.

While everyone’s daily routine can be as different as the life they lead, there are still a few things that everyone needs to do to stay healthy and happy in the long term. This includes practicing a consistent oral hygiene routine each day.

Brushing your teeth each morning and night is a good first step toward removing food particles and plaque from your teeth. However, there are still areas that a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste cannot reach.

Making a conscious effort to floss between each of your and along the gumline at least once each day is also a critical component for removing bacterial deposits from your mouth. With careful practice, these measures can significantly reduce your chances of suffering from cavities and gum disease.

Your routine dental checkups at Drs. Nichols and Cicmanec’s dentist office is also a critical component for preserving your oral health. They include professional dental cleaning treatments as well as a thorough oral exam to catch developing dental health issues.

If you are having a problem with your teeth or gums, and you are in the Sioux Falls, South Dakota, area you should call (605) 335-8640 to set up a dental checkup at Prairie Dental Center.
