Maintain good oral hygiene

The dental hygienists who work with Dr. Delafraz have years of experience and can talk to you about the best ways to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth clean and healthy.

Essentials of Good Dental Hygiene

Brushing your teeth thoroughly twice a day is the first thing you should do, along with flossing your teeth daily too. Choosing your diet carefully also helps you to keep your teeth healthy. Regular visits to your dentist or dental hygienist are also important.
