Oral Hygiene Counseling

Helping You Care for Your Smile

Holistic dental care with our dentist and a consistent, at-home oral hygiene routine are both necessary parts of maintaining your oral and overall health. However, many people do not know that good nutrition is also part of a good oral hygiene routine. Not only can your diet affect the overall health of your body but it is connected to the health of your smile as well. A lack of proper nutrition and good oral hygiene can lead to dental issues such as oral cancer and diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

How Can We Help?

To help you keep a regular, effective oral hygiene routine, Dr. Gloria Chen provides oral hygiene counseling in Chicago, Illinois. She will walk you through the steps necessary to maintain your oral and overall health. Every patient is unique, and your counseling may vary depending on your current oral health, metabolism and other factors that we will review with you during your visit. Because of the connection between your smile and body, Dr. Chen may suggest other treatments that can improve your overall well-being. These approaches may include adjusting your posture, breathing or emotional health.

When you visit Chicago Holistic Dentistry, you can take advantage of a number of different dental treatments to help you get the most out of your smile. But in between visits, there are steps you can take to keep your smile clean, healthy and attractive. Some of those steps include:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice each day for two minutes at a time. We suggest that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid damaging your enamel.
  • Flossing at least once a day, preferably before bedtime.
  • Eating a balanced diet that includes plenty of water and fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Avoiding sugary or acidic foods.
  • Seeing Chen for your regular cleanings and exams.

We are looking forward to helping you improve both your smile and body health. Please call Chicago Holistic Dentistry today at 312-280-2299 or text 312-890-6968 to schedule an appointment and get started on the path to a healthier life. We aim to change your behavior for the better so you can develop an oral hygiene routine that will last.
