Cleaning, Check-ups and Prevention
Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended to come for regular cleanings and examinations. Not only do they help you identify dental problems before they arise, they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. A professional cleaning removes hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. Even if you haven’t had a dental appointment in years, it’s never too late to treat your teeth.
What are some preventative measures you can take?
Brush with a fluoride toothpaste
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush after each meal
Floss daily before bedtime
Use an oral rinse after flossing
Avoid sugary foods, coffee, and tobacco
