Oral Health Habits Your Dentist Practices

We all know just how important it is to take care of our teeth. Dentists everywhere recommend a variety of products and procedures to help patients maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. But have you ever wondered how dentists keep their teeth so healthy and bright?


Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how Dr. Giovannini stays on top of his dental health:


First things first! Dr. Giovannini starts his day by removing any plaque that has accumulated overnight with a non-abrasive and enamel strengthening toothpaste. After brushing for at least two minutes, he follows up with a gentle mouthwash.


Healthy eating is important for dental health. Dr. Giovannini avoids processed and high-sugar foods. He instead opts for fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and non-sweetened beverages as snacks during the day. It’s important that any food trapped between teeth be removed between brushings, so Dr. Giovannini also flosses after enjoying meals and snacks.


After a busy day taking care of patients’ teeth, it’s time for Dr. Giovannini to get some shut-eye! Before he falls fast asleep, it’s another round of brushing for at least two minutes. This time, he follows up with a thorough flossing to ensure that any stubborn food particles have been fully removed. Another rinse with mouthwash and he’s all done!


Dr. Giovannini also has his teeth professionally cleaned and whitened annually to ensure that his smile is not only healthy but bright! No matter how thorough your daily routine may be, it is important for teeth to undergo a professional evaluation at least once a year in case there are early and hidden signs of tooth decay present.
