Preventative Dentistry

Prevention, the key to dental health!

To help you prevent having any significant dental problems, there are several factors which can be incorporated into your daily life. These factors include proper daily brushing and flossing, regular dental visit and proper diet.

Brushing and Flossing - This simple act of proper daily hygiene will help prevent the majority of dental problems. Proper brushing will remove plaque (the sticky substance that forms on teeth). Tooth decay and gum disease are infections caused by bacteria which live in plaque deposits. Brushing only removes plaque from the tooth surfaces, not between the teeth, which is why daily flossing is imperative.

Regular Dental Visits - For most people, twice a year is usually sufficient; however, only you, your dentist and your hygienist can determine how often is actually necessary. Checkups are needed for regular assessments of the condition and well being of your mouth; therefore, regular checkups are a MUST in order to maintain a healthy, happy smile!

Remember, in order to maintain good dental health and prevent tooth decay it is important to brush at least twice a day, floss regularly, eat balanced meals, reduce sugary snacks, and visit your dentist on a regular basis.
