The best way to prevent dental diseases and have a healthy and beautiful smile is to participate in good oral hygiene at home. Most dental issues can be prevented simply by brushing and flossing twice a day (once in the morning and once before bed).


It is also important to schedule regular cleanings and dental exams with your dentist. The average healthy adult with good oral hygiene should visit their dentist for a cleaning and oral exam at least once or twice a year. Ultimately, your dentist will recommend how often you should visit based on past check-ups.
