Wisdom Teeth: Hygiene

Posted .

Unfortunately, there is no way to avoid wisdom teeth from impacting. However, there are some things you can do to keep your mouth healthy even if you have wisdom teeth. Read on to find out more, and be sure to follow these tips!

The major problem with erupted wisdom teeth is that they can be hard to reach. To keep your mouth clean when you have wisdom teeth, be sure to spend a tiny bit of additional time brushing and vigilantly reach each of the wisdom teeth at the back of your dental arches.

While brushing two times per day is good, it isn’t sufficient on its own: flossing and rinsing with mouthwash are some further ways to keep your mouth clean and healthy. If you are not able to floss your wisdom teeth with traditional floss, consider using a water flosser.

Follow the given instructions on your bottle of mouthwash to get the most benefit out of it; don’t forget to look for an ADA seal when buying the mouthwash. By brushing, flossing, rinsing with mouthwash and visiting our office for appointments frequently, you’ll be able to keep your mouth healthy.
