LasNC Dental Home Care for Our Patient’s Teeth & More

Home Care is essential for keeping a healthy smile. If you would like a healthy smile, the team at Carolina Dental Arts is here to help you achieve this. Alongside our general dentistry treatments, one of the most important ways to accomplish this is dental home care in Raleigh, Goldsboro, and throughout North Carolina.

Eating balanced meals and reducing unhealthy snacks is one way to help promote a healthy smile. Also, correctly using dental tools helps control the plaque and bacteria that cause dental disease. Below, we have listed a few dental care tips that you can use at home.

How to Properly Brush Your Teeth

Brushing your teeth is an effective way to attain home-care oral health. Our dentists recommend using an ADA-approved soft bristle brush and toothpaste to brush at least twice a day, especially before bedtime. We have provided these easy steps for how to brush your teeth in NC:

  1. First, place the brush at a 45-degree angle at the gums and gently brush in a small, circular motion. Make sure that you always feel the bristles on the gums.
  2. Brush the outer, inner, and biting surfaces of each tooth. Also, use the tip of the brush to clean the inside of your front teeth.
  3. Lastly, brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.

Electric toothbrushes are also beneficial when it comes to home care, as they are easy to use and thoroughly remove plaque. Simply place the bristles on your gum and allow the brush to clean your teeth. 


How to Floss Your Teeth

Flossing your teeth is an important part of Home Care that is oftentimes overlooked. Clean between your teeth and under your gumline by flossing every day. This not only helps clean the spaces, but it disrupts plaque colonies from building up and damaging the gums, teeth, and bone. Here is how our NC patients can floss their teeth:


  1. Take 12 to 16 inches of dental floss and wrap it around your first fingers and hold it in place with your thumbs, leaving about 2 inches of floss between your hands.
  2. Use your thumbs and forefingers to guide the floss as you insert in between the teeth using a sawing motion.
  3. Curve the floss into a “C” shape around each tooth and under the gumline. Also, gently move the floss up and down, as this cleans the side of each tooth. This is a great home care regimen.

If you have trouble using conventional floss, try floss holders for easy cleaning.

Rinsing Your Mouth for Dental Care at Home

After brushing and flossing, and after a meal if you can’t brush, rinse your mouth out with water. Consult with your dentist or dental hygienist to see if using an over-the-counter mouth rinse or other dental hygiene tools, such as interdental brushes, rubber tip stimulators, tongue cleaners, irrigation devices, fluoride, or medicated rinses, is right for you.

The team at Carolina Dental Arts would be happy to help you create a dental hygiene routine that aids you in your success toward at-home dental care in NC. Talk with us at your next appointment or contact us today with your questions.

Ashley who was my hygienist today did such a wonderful job on my teeth. I have gone in for cleanings before with other dentists in the area of Goldsboro and always come out with yellow teeth still.. I did not have any any kind of whitening done she just cleaned my teeth and I felt so good afterward .
