DENTAL HYGIENE

PREVENTIVE

Routine dental checkups are vital to good oral hygiene and are the best way to detect problems at their earliest stages which saves unnecessary discomfort, time, and money.


We recommend a visit with your hygienist two times a year. This can often help you keep your teeth and gums healthy, provide you with advisory on any sensitivity or questions you may have, and prevent issues long before they become serious.



Oral Hygiene at Home

Good oral hygiene at home also is very important to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or from coming back. Daily home cleaning helps keep plaque under control and reduces tartar buildup.

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss your teeth (or use another between-the-teeth cleaner) once a day.  

You don’t have to lose teeth to periodontal disease. Brush, clean between your teeth, eat a healthy diet and visit your dentist regularly for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
