Taking care of your teeth are a vital part of your overall health. Too often it is overlooked and disregarded until serious damage or tooth loss occurs. That is why here in American Fork, Utah, we take your oral care very seriously. Here at American Fork Family Dentist we take pride in giving you the best dental care possible and guiding you to pristine oral health.

Oral health is important and too often goes dismissed. Due to poor oral habits, bacteria in your mouth could cause gum disease leading to severe problems. Some of these problems can include gum disease, tooth decay, tooth loss, and even bone loss. That is why keeping up with your daily oral habits is essential to positive oral health.

Brushing your teeth for at least two minutes a day, twice a day will help your fight to prevent cavities and keep gum disease at bay. Flossing will also go hand-in-hand with keeping your teeth clean. This is because while brushing keeps the plaque and food particles off your teeth, the floss will keep the plaque and food particles from between your teeth. Mix in mouthwash to kill any other bacteria hiding in your smile, and you can keep your oral health looking great.
