Your Guide to Adult Oral Care at Hulse Dental, Onalaska, Wisconsin

Good oral health ensures a beautiful and healthy smile throughout your life and has an impact on your overall well-being. Keeping your smile in good condition is pretty easy as long as you keep up with basic oral care habits. By following the tips below and with the help of our staff at Hulse Dental in Onalaska, WI, you’ll have a beautiful smile for life.

There are four basic things every adult should do as a part of their regular oral care regimen:

  • Brushing: Brush at least twice per day, once in the morning and once at night. Some people choose to brush after lunch as well. Use a fluoride toothpaste and brush for at least two minutes in a circular motion, covering all the teeth and the gum line.
  • oral careFlossing: Floss at least once per day to remove anything between your teeth and below the gum line. When using floss, make a “C” shape around both sides of each tooth, and swipe it up and down a few times to remove any plaque buildup.
  • Dental Cleanings: Once every six months for most people, visit the clinic for a checkup and cleaning. Your dentist may take X-rays of your teeth and jaw and will examine your mouth for any potential issues, such as oral cancer or cavities. They’ll do a thorough cleaning to remove any dangerous tartar buildup and give your teeth a fluoride polishing for protection.
  • Diet: Maintain a diet low in sugary foods, as sugar will stick to your teeth and form plaque, a film where harmful bacteria can thrive. Have plenty of calcium in your diet as well, as it is vital for strong teeth.

Dr. Hulse at Hulse Dental will tell you if there are any other oral care tips you need to follow, depending on your personal needs. Learn more about Dr. Kurt Hulse and his team online, and call (608) 783-1306 to schedule your first appointment.
