While at home, you can also continue to practice good oral hygiene. This includes brushing teeth two to three times per day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least daily, and eating a mouth-healthy diet. Lean protein, vegetables, dairy products, and nuts can all help with the process of remineralization and work to keep teeth healthy and strong. On the other hand, chewing on ice can actually damage and chip your teeth; plus it can be harmful to your dental sealant. Make sure that you and your family are taking care of your teeth by making positive choices both in and out of the dentist office.
When you visit our Roswell dental office, we will be happy to provide you with more information on dental sealants and preventive care. Our goal is for you and your entire family to have healthy teeth for a lifetime. Education, prevention, and care are all part of that process.
