Regular Dentist Visits
Establishing a regular routine of visiting the dentist for a professional cleaning every six months will not only keep your teeth healthy and clean, it will help you develop good dental habits for life. Regular dental exams can help identify problems early, allowing us to treat those issues before they become more serious.
Learning how to brush your teeth the right way is essential for good oral health. Using correct tooth-brushing techniques will help remove plaque, prevent cavities and get rid of the bacteria that cause bad breath.
To prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease, you must remove plaque thoroughly from all tooth surfaces. Unfortunately, a toothbrush cannot effectively reach between teeth or below the gum line. Tooth decay and gum disease often start in these areas, which is why flossing daily is just as important as brushing your teeth.
If you’re not sure how to brush your teeth the right way or how to floss properly, we are here to help. Just ask us on your next visit about the correct methods of brushing and flossing, and we’ll make sure you’re on the right track.
