Dentist in North Hollywood shares teeth cleaning tips

Regular professional hygiene appointments at A-Dental Center are critical to the vitality of your mouth. Our Registered Dental Hygienist expertly cleans spots behind and between teeth that you cannot reach with home care, helping to keep gum disease and tooth decay at bay. These visits also give our dentists an opportunity to thoroughly examine your mouth for early indications of oral problems. Preventive treatments such as fluoride to strengthen enamel, or sealants to reduce risk of cavities, may be applied for additional protection. Our team only sees you a few times a year, though. Fadi Edmond Elzayat, DDS, better known as Dr. Edmond, shares these tips with Hollywood patients on daily teeth cleaning.

 

Don’t rush the brush

Most people know that they should brush their teeth in the morning, after meals, and before going to bed. What they tend to forget is to slow down and brush gently but thoroughly. Use a downward sweeping motion on the outside and inside surfaces of upper teeth, and the reverse on the lower arch. This removes plaque from enamel, without pushing food debris under the gum line. Think about cleaning all sides of each individual tooth as you brush. The whole process should take about two minutes. You probably have a stop watch on your mobile phone or fitness tracker – use it.

 

Floss like a boss

If you skip flossing, you miss cleaning about 30 percent of tooth area. These are spaces where bacteria hide to start eating away at teeth and gums. The idea of flossing is not to see how hard or fast you can ping the string between your teeth. Secure about 18 inches of floss over your index fingers. Pull it into a V-shape around one side of a tooth and gently slide it up and down. Repeat with the other side, and continue until all teeth are flossed. Please don’t forget the furthest surface of back molars. Even though this isn’t an “in between” space, it is easy to miss with brushing.

 

Cheats for sweets

Sugary beverages, starchy chips, and candy are common between-meal snacks at any age. It is best for your oral health and whole body wellness to substitute pure water, and crunchy fresh fruit and vegetable munchies. Regardless, if you cannot brush right after snacking, swish with fresh water to flush sugar, acids, and food debris from the mouth. Chewing sugar-free gum with xylitol also helps to clean teeth and maintain a non-acidic, balanced pH level in the mouth.

    I've been a patient of Dr Edmond for several years. This dental clinic is very warm and welcoming, making it much easier to have treatment done. I just had 3 of my wisdom teeth pulled, in and out and not painful at all!

  • Rating: 5Dentist North Hollywood - Five Star Rating Sarine G.

    I called A-dental on Tuesday 10/23 almost to tears with pain I was experiencing from one of my many cavities. I knew I had cavities because I had been to a different dentist who I just wasn’t comfortable with. Anyways, right from the minute Edith answered the phone I knew I would be in good hands. I figured they would take me in either the day after or near future but she was able to squeeze me in right away.

    I am so glad that I switched over to this dental office! They are always extremely thorough in their check-ups, using all of the latest equipment (it's amazing how many offices let their equipment go far, far out of date due to the cost of updating it!).

    Only been here once. The dentist is very knowledgeable and thorough, he fixed a broken front tooth for me and it looks beautiful !! Very natural-looking. Everyone here is very friendly and really seems caring.

    Their prices seem very reasonable for a dental office, I don't have insurance.

    Had all 4 of my wisdoms taken out last week and didn't feel a thing!!

    I swear the whole procedure took less than 10 minutes and didn't even know he had taken them out!

    Dr Elzayat did my extractions, he has this reassuring attitude that's very comforting and he was really patient with my fear and answered all my questions, even the silly ones :)

  • Rating: 5Dentist North Hollywood - Five Star Rating Matt J

    This place was amazing. I had an infected impacted wisdom tooth that was spreading to my head. The cost of the procedure to take this infected tooth out was too expensive for me and i didn't insurance and had to pay out of pocket. They worked with me on the cost so I could afford it. They didn't try and rob me of every nickel I had which a lot of other dental offices do. It was one of a few places I have been to where I felt like they actually cared more about my well being than money. The whole staff was incredibly nice and accommodating.

  • Rating: 5Dentist North Hollywood - Five Star Rating Farah W.

    I been going to Dr. Elzayat for years and he is just awesome. I was without dental insurance for almost 2 years, so when I finally got it, I had about a total of 7 fillings to be done, but all were painless. He even calls to check up on you later that evening to make sure you aren't having any problems or in any pain. Dr Elzayat and all staff you rock!
