How can I rebalance my oral bacteria?

Your oral microbiome is home to trillions of microorganisms that play a crucial role in maintaining your oral health and overall well-being. By taking steps to rebalance your oral bacteria, you can promote optimal health and prevent dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. Simple lifestyle changes can go a long way in achieving a healthy oral microbiome, such as:

  • Brush twice a day: Use fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. Make sure to brush all surfaces of your teeth and tongue.
  • Floss daily: Flossing removes plaque and bacteria from between your teeth and below the gum line, where your toothbrush can’t reach. Make sure to floss at least once a day.
  • Use mouthwash: Rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash to help kill bacteria and freshen your breath.
  • Eat a healthy diet: A healthy diet that is low in sugar and processed foods can help promote a healthy oral microbiome.
  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help flush bacteria and food particles from your mouth.

Regular dental checkups at our office can ensure that your oral microbiome is in good shape. We can also provide personalized advice on how to rebalance your oral bacteria.
