Oh heck yes...


First off...they ain't gonna clean themselves. From the first moment your child started showing teeth...you and the toothbrush should have been in there. You don't have to scrub hard but jus let the child get used to having the toothbrush in his mouth. No toothpaste necessary. Make it a game or whatever it takes...but don't let those things go...you'll have an unhappy child and BIG dental bills

Definitely


As soon as they erupt you should start cleaning them (even before the first tooth erupts, wiping your childs gums after eating can help lower the bacterisa count) you can use a wet cloth with water or a toothbrush and training toothpaste

 Baby Cleaning Gums Plaque Teeth

Yes


You should start cleaning them. At first, just use a piece of gauze moistened with water to wipe plaque from your baby's teeth and gums. You don't need to use toothpaste, but try to clean them twice a day. Once your baby has several teeth, you might try using a small toothbrush with just two or three rows of very soft bristles.

Wisdom Teeth

Do's And Don'ts

Most wisdom teeth should be removed. Gum tissue is usually not good around them even if they erupt.

Distraction


If the suction is not the cause of gagging Then distract yourself by wiggling your toes or thinking of something else. Take frequent breaks during cleaning.

Crowning Achievement


Crown care is essentially the same as routine dental care. Use a dental paste for polishing and removing soft plaque along with a regular flossing. A device such as a Waterpik® will provide pressurized water to flow above/below the crown/gingival interface to remove food particles and prevent odor. An oral rinse will finish the job. Remember to avoid staining foods and juices.

 Ada Cleaning Crown DDS Flossing Mouthwash Teeth Teething

Brush, floss, rinse


A dental crown covers and protects a natural tooth. That crown is luted or cemented to the prepared natural tooth, so that it blends right into the natural dentition. So cleaning and care protocols are the same as natural teeth. Brush with a soft bristle tooth brush and ADA certified toothpaste 3x daily, rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash for 30 seconds 2x daily and floss once a day. And c ur DDS!

Good 1st step


Treating active gum disease requires more than a cleaning. It requires rigorous maintenance on your part. Sometimes surgery is required. Please talk to your Dentist about the complexity and severity of your gum disease, the treatment plan going forward, and if the services of a Periodontist, a gum specialist, are warranted.

 DDS Dental Health Dentistry Oral health Teeth Washing

At the least


People often take better care of their car than their own health. They may wash and wax their car monthly, yet never have their teeth professionally cleaned. If you want to keep your teeth, see DDS. See your dentist to accurately determine what is best for your oral health. We see patients on specific schedules to their needs (which could be) every 3, 4, or 6 months or even every 4 or 6 WEEKS!.
