We are great believers in preventive care at our practice. Many dental problems can be avoided through preventive care both at home and in our office, helping you to continue enjoying good oral health. Some of these preventive actions include:

  • Brushing regularly. You should brush at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. In addition to keeping your teeth healthy, brushing also helps you avoid bad breath!
  • Flossing daily. Frequent flossing helps clean the spaces between your teeth where plaque, food, and harmful bacteria congregate. This helps you avoid tooth decay and periodontal disease, among other problems.
  • Eat a balanced diet. When you eat nutritious foods and limit your intake of sugary and acidic foods, it helps keep the levels of harmful bacteria in your mouth down and contributes to your overall health.
  • Visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. This will help keep your teeth free from cavities and gum disease, and allows us to treat any damage before it becomes extensive and painful. We also recommend that you ask our dentists about other preventive treatments, such as dental sealants and fluoride.
