Personalized Preventive Dentistry
Routine Dental Exams and Cleanings
We recommend regular cleanings and checkups every six months to maximize patients’ dental health. During a patient’s routine checkup and preventive care appointment at our dental office, we provide a thorough cleaning, diligent polishing, oral cancer screening, exam of teeth and gums, and customized oral hygiene instructions.
Eat a balanced, tooth-healthy diet. Proteins build bone and help the body repair damaged tissue. Dairy products provide calcium and vitamin D for stronger enamel. Fruits and vegetables contain vitamins and minerals that are essential for overall oral health. Foods that harm tooth enamel should be kept to a minimum, such as sugar-filled treats and acidic sodas and energy drinks.
Ideal Home Hygiene
Brush your teeth at least twice each day. Use a soft-bristled brush to protect your enamel and gums, and replace your brush every three months, or whenever it begins to fray. Use a fluoride toothpaste to reduce your risk of cavities. Don’t forget to brush the top of your tongue to remove plaque and food particles and to keep your breath fresh.
Floss at least one a day. Flossing helps remove plaque and bacteria from between the teeth and near the gum line where brushes can’t reach. Dentist-recommended mouthwashes can also help remove plaque in hard-to-reach spots.
