Maintaining exemplary oral care can be a challenge. Ultimately, keeping your teeth healthy should be a joint effort between you and your dentist. We strongly encourage our patients to learn the benefits of preventive care and the consequences of not doing so.
When you go in for a cleaning, your dentist conducts a complete oral exam to identify the areas that need the most thorough care. For this reason, regular cleanings are fantastic ways to ensure optimally clean teeth. After your treatment, we will discuss better oral hygiene strategies and what you can do to keep your teeth in the best possible condition.
Additionally, regular checkups can limit the effects of diseases before they take root. Pain is the last thing you’ll feel when something goes wrong in your body. Delayed pain sensation is the primary reason why certain conditions can worsen without care from a dentist.
Our team of skilled professionals are solely focused on your health. From the moment you enter our office, you’ll notice how comfortable and inviting it is.
While we all know to brush for two minutes twice a day, many individuals fail to do so. Improper brushing can lead to the accumulation of plaque, tartar, bacteria, and sugars. All of these substances attack and break down gums and teeth.
The best way to combat the accrual of harmful agents is by brushing for two short minutes in the morning and at night. In the morning, you can ensure a clean, healthy, and fresh mouth. At night before bedtime, brushing will remove any gunk that has built up during meals and snacks. It also scrubs away alcohol that can dry your teeth.
However, brushing is about more than just how long you do it. Being too harsh can cause enamel damage, and brushing too softly won’t do anything at all. For these reasons, many individuals have a difficult time brushing correctly, especially children.
Lastly, the toothbrush you choose can determine how effective your brushing can be. Bristles that are too firm can harm your gums, and soft-bristled brushes fail to provide the necessary scrubbing power. If you're unsure about anything or have questions, it’s always best to contact our office. We are more than happy to assist you with your oral hygiene!
