Good oral hygiene is not only essential for your dental health, it is also important for your overall health. How? Those with poor oral hygiene are at a greater risk for a number of conditions that are detrimental to your health, such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. Our comprehensive preventative program is designed to preserve your teeth and their supporting structures as well as you whole-body health.
We are passionate about providing our patients with information about the proper techniques and tools needed to keep your teeth healthy between dental appointments. When you visit, we will cover such topics as:
- Which type of toothbrush is the most beneficial
- How to properly brush your teeth (Yep — there is a wrong way)
- How to efficiently floss your teeth to avoid gum disease
- Which mouthwashes or other fluoride treatments to avoid for optimal health
To protect against oral decay and disease, we recommend semi-annual professional dental cleanings. This is advisable for even those with the most flawless home hygiene routine, as only skilled hands and special instruments can truly clean your teeth and evaluate the health of your gums and mouth.
Don’t wait another moment before scheduling your next preventative dental care appointment. We look forward to helping you have the healthiest smile possible.
