Good oral care is of great importance for a healthy and radiant smile. However, having a healthy mouth goes beyond just having beautiful white teeth. It also includes the health of the gums, tongue, and other structures in the mouth. Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist are crucial for preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral problems.
In this blog, we will tell you more about good oral care and provide you with tips to improve your oral health.
Good oral care starts with yourself. By brushing your teeth twice a day with an electric toothbrush and fluoride containing toothpaste, you prevent cavities and plaque. If you also clean the spaces between your teeth by flossing and using interdental brushes and regularly using mouthwash, then you are doing a great job with your oral health.
Despite all efforts, oral problems can still arise. A dental hygienist will determine with you which treatment is necessary to solve problems. Additionally, the dental hygienist will give you tips and information to improve your oral care routine. It is therefore advisable to visit the dentist and dental hygienist regularly.
Why is good oral care important?
Good oral care prevents dental and health problems. Through good oral care, you can prevent cavities, inflamed or receding gums, discolored teeth and bad breath.
Why good oral care is especially important for older adults?
As you age, your eating habits may change, which can have an impact on your teeth. Therefore, it is extra important to take good care of your teeth. Furthermore, tooth decay and periodontitis often occur in older patients. That’s why it’s important to take good care of your mouth.
What can you do yourself to improve your oral health?
Good oral care is very important for making a positive impression with a healthy smile. Here are some tips to achieve and maintain a beautiful smile:
Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes using a fluoride toothpaste. This helps protect your teeth against cavities.
Use an electric toothbrush. The rapid, rotating movements ensure better plaque removal. It also makes it easier to clean hard-to-reach areas.
Clean the spaces between your teeth using dental picks, interdental brushes, or dental floss. Do this at least once a day. This way, you prevent gum inflammation and bad breath.
Pay full attention to brushing your teeth by looking in the mirror while you’re doing it. Don’t let yourself get distracted by other activities.
Regularly visit the dentist and dental hygienist to have your teeth cleaned.
With these practical tips, you can achieve and maintain a beautiful smile. Good oral care not only contributes to a positive impression but also to a healthy mouth.

Very knowledgeable dentist in a beautiful practice. They work with the latest equipment, you will always be helped quickly and friendly. It is clear to see that there is a good atmosphere between the different employees.
Truly a fantastic practice. Been a patient here for years. Normally I always finish the check-ups very quickly, but today during lunch at work I bit a tooth in half. Called Tandartsjordaan, and was able to go straight after work tonight. Treatment was painless and quick. They managed to save my tooth, which had really broken down. Thank you Tandartsjordaan!
Very nice and well served. Nice practice with friendly and above all knowledgeable employees. Fortunately I switched!
More than satisfied !! I have been coming here for a few years now and am extremely satisfied. Pleasant practice with the most advanced equipment! A crown placed within 1 day! Awesome
I was able to go to work in the short term. My front tooth has been repaired very professionally. The dentist and assistant were very involved and the result is fantastic. Thanks again.
Great dentist. It's not only spring in the eyes of the dental assistant.
Top dental practice. Recommended! I am very satisfied! Great team, from the receptionists to the dental hygienists, the assistants and the highly skilled dentists with excellent service with the patient at the center. They think along with you, put you at ease, are also great with children and it is a practice where everything is under one roof. Fast and painless. I am very happy that I came here 4 years ago. I dare to smile again and many of my acquaintances and friends have also enjoyed going to this dental practice for years. Tandartspraktijk Jordaan also has super service, even on Sundays and evenings until 10 pm! to be open! They are exactly the average in North Holland in terms of prices. (Have requested multiple quotes). Not cheap, but logical! Most prices are determined by the government, so no discussion. If you are going for quality, durability and service, then you have come to the right place at Tandarts Jordaan.
Fortunately, after an accident, I was immediately able to visit my own dentist on a Sunday. I have never had such a fine dentist before and can recommend everyone to go here. They are incredibly knowledgeable, but also sweet, especially if you are afraid of the dentist like me. They take their time and reassure you. So hereby a big Thank you!
An extremely professional dental practice, unlike anything I have encountered before in Amsterdam and The Hague. Very knowledgeable dentists, who clearly explain exactly what they perform during a treatment and they know how to put patients at ease.
Wat een fantastische praktijk! Het was noodzakelijk drie kronen te plaatsen, boven middenvoor. Echter, als de bestaande kroon als uitgangspunt gebruikt zou worden, zou het rijtje niet het mooist mogelijke resultaat geven. De oude kroon is daarom door tandarts Bakker kosteloos vervangen. Dit stijgt mi ver uit boven klantvriendelijkheid of betrokkenheid en heeft ook te maken met passie voor het vak.
De behandeling was geruststellend, duidelijk, plezierig en professioneel. De vier kronen werden voor het afbakken door de tandtechnicus aangepast aan mijn wensen, weer zonder extra kosten. Het resultaat is een plaatje. Allen die hieraan bijdroegen: dank jullie wel!
