Oral Hygiene Can Help You Maintain
Your Smile's Health and Appearance

Dr. Miles Mason knows that one of the main causes of gum disease is oral hygiene, which is why he provides oral hygiene instructions. When you learn from our periodontist about the correct way to brush and floss, then you are less likely to develop oral infections like periodontal disease. Call Montgomery County Periodontal Associates today if you want to learn more about oral hygiene in The Woodlands, TX, or Conroe, TX.

During your time at our office, our team works hard to improve your oral health. It is essential, however, that you continue taking care of your smile at home through consistent oral hygiene. Good dental hygiene includes a number of daily habits and practices that help to keep your smile healthy and bright. Our periodontist recommends that you follow these basic steps to help your smile stay in optimal health:

  • Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that includes fluoride.
  • Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
  • Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
  • Maintain your regular visits to the periodontist every six months. During these visits, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments.

When you visit our periodontist and team, we will review your dental hygiene habits with you and offer needed information on any additional steps you can take to further improve your oral health. To learn more about dental hygiene and to schedule your next appointment at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us today.

Dr. Mason and his staff have been fantastic.  Dr. Mason has performed periodontal surgery on me twice and always made himself available for after hours care and questions.  The surgical results turned out well and working with his staff has always been a nice experience.
