Preventive dental care can protect your smile from decay, gum disease and other dental conditions. Preventive dental care can keep your smile at its best at all times so that you do not have to receive more intensive or invasive dental treatments. We offer preventive dental treatments to help you maintain your oral health and also detect any early signs of damage or disease and provide treatment right away before any problems we detect become more serious.
Since we do not see you every day, you will want to maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home as your own preventive dental care. We can give you tips during your appointment to keep your oral health in good condition between visits to our office.
Here are some guidelines you should follow at home:
- Brush your teeth twice a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste.
- Floss between your teeth once a day.
- Eat a balanced, healthy diet. Limit sugary or acidic foods.
- Schedule a dental cleaning and exam at least twice a year.
