We empower our patients to take control of their oral health! This includes maintaining a great doctor-patient relationship to help you reach your smile goals.
Swap Your Tooth Brush
Approximately every three months, you should swap out your tooth brush for a fresh one. Misshapen bristles don’t provide as thorough of a cleaning and can result in more damage.
See Your Dentist Twice a Year
It may come as a shock that you should see your dentist so often! But, when you come in for a regular visit twice a year, or every six months, we’re able to track your progress and prevent any potential issues.
Ask About Sealants
Children aren’t the only ones prone to cavities. Adults can benefit from cavity prevention measures if they are having issues maintaining their oral health. If cavities are something you struggle with, sealants may be able to offer protection at any age.
Oral Health Reflects Overall Health
Eating mouth-healthy foods, avoiding bad habits like drinking and smoking, and more lifestyle behaviors can be reflected in your mouth. By maintaining a healthy and happy life, you’re more likely to show off a beautiful smile.
Use Fluoridated Products
Unless our dentist has stated otherwise for your specific needs, you should always use fluoridated mouth products at home. This’ll help you keep strong teeth that can fend off daily wear and tear.
Protect Your Teeth from Injury
Think about how much your teeth go through in a day. By donning a mouthguard at night – or even during the day – you can defend your teeth against grinding, as well as other forms of tension.
Don’t Forget Your Gums
We always talk about brushing our teeth, but a lot of oral health concerns are rooted in the gums. Flossing and paying attention to your periodontal health can spare you from needing restorative measures in the future.
