Prevention & Care

The two most important steps to keeping your teeth strong and healthy are regular dental visits and proper dental hygiene.

Proper Dental Hygiene
Proper dental hygiene is all about the fight against plaque.  Since brushing and flossing are your best defenses against plaque, it is important to learn the right techniques and get into good habits.  Your dentist recommends that you use a soft bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day.  You should also floss to make sure you get the spaces between teeth a brush can’t reach.  Ask your dentist or hygienist to show you the right way to brush and floss so you can prevent tooth decay before it happens.

Regular Dental Visits
Most people need checkups twice a year.  These regular dental visits usually consist of a thorough cleaning and a dental exam. The cleaning helps remove any plaque or tartar buildup that your regular brushing missed.  If you are prone to tartar buildup, or have had gum problems in the past, your dentist may suggest more frequent cleanings.

Most dental problems are very treatable if they are caught early. The dental exam is extremely important because it can help identify small issues before they become big concerns. During these prevention & care visits your dentist is also able to do an oral cancer screening.
