Dental Hygiene and Prevention

Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended biannual cleanings and examinations. Not only do they help you resolve dental problems before they arise, they leave your gums healthier and your teeth cleaner and whiter.

A professional cleaning removes hard plaque and tartar that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. It also involves a fluoride treatment and polish to help protect and soothe your teeth and gums. 

What are some preventative measures I can take?

  • Drink a plenty of water.

  • Floss daily before bedtime.

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush.

  • Brush with a fluoridated toothpaste.

  • Avoid sugary foods, coffee, and tobacco. 

  • Rinse out your mouth after drinking sugary and acidic beverages.
