The Gift Of Oral Health

The Gift Of Oral Health In Gladewater

Sometimes our patients wonder why, with all the developments in dentistry, we still send you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss after a checkup at Vaca and Kirby Dental in Longview.

It’s true, they do seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world. But don’t let their simplicity fool you! These tools are your best friends in preventing cavities, plaque build-up, and gum disease!

When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an important part of everyday oral hygiene.

How To Brush

We recommend brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Brush for at least two minutes. Make sure to get the front and sides of all your teeth, the inside and outside parts, and the chewing surfaces.

When you do the sides, be sure you brush along the gumline. Use a gentle touch, and hold the brush at a 45-degree angle. Replace your toothbrush every three months or so.

Use whatever toothpaste flavor you like best, but make sure it has fluoride in it. Use a pea-sized blob – or a little more, if you’re so inclined. Just be sure to use enough!

We strongly recommend flossing, too. Should you floss your teeth before or after you brush? There is no hard-and-fast rule on that, and it may come down to personal preference. We think before is better, but the most important thing is that you do it.

At Vaca and Kirby Dental in Longview, we think that good oral health is a gift that keeps on giving. Our services include complete general dentistry. People from Gladewater, Hallsville, and New Diana also come to us for cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today!
