While we do everything in our power to help you achieve optimal oral health, we need your help to meet that goal. It is important to practice good oral hygiene at home between your visits to the dentist to maintain your oral health. If you have any questions about how you can improve your dental hygiene in Memphis, Tennessee, or if you would like to schedule a dental cleaning and exam at the office of Dr. J. Whitley Wills, we invite you to call or visit us soon.

Our team is always here to help you obtain and maintain optimal oral health, but the best thing you can do for your smile is continue caring for it with an at-home oral hygiene routine. Your dental health is largely dependent on the daily habits that impact your smile, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have about the best practices for your specific dental needs. Here are some general tips and basic steps to help keep your smile healthy and beautiful:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day or after each meal. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that contains fluoride.
  • Floss your teeth at least once a day, ideally before going to bed each night.
  • Maintain a balanced diet. Sugary and acidic foods can encourage tooth decay. Limiting your intake of those foods can prevent future dental issues.
  • Keep up your regular, six-month visits to the doctor. This is when our team will thoroughly clean your teeth and examine your mouth for any signs of dental health issues or oral disease.

Our team is always happy to help where we can to give you the smile you deserve, and that includes answering any questions you may have about your dental hygiene habits and how to improve your oral health. To learn more about how to care for your smile, and to schedule your regular visit with our doctor, please call or visit today. We look forward to seeing you!
