Recommendations for male patients

Regular check up and cleaning. 
Make sure to come in for checkups at least twice a year. The ADA suggests that the frequency of the regular visits should be tailored by the dentist to accommodate for the patient's current oral health status and health history. In addition, high-risk patients, such as those who smoke or patients with diabetes, may benefit from more frequent visits and cleanings to prevent periodontal disease.

Brush twice, floss once
Reiterate the importance of brushing the teeth two times a day for two minutes.
