At Family Friendly Dentistry, we care about the oral health of your entire family. We know that caring for a family can be challenging. It may seem like there are always new responsibilities and activities popping up that take away from any free time you may have. No matter how busy you may be, it is important to create an oral hygiene routine that family members of all ages can learn and benefit from. Here are some essentials that should be included:
At Family Friendly Dentistry, we are passionate about our patients of all ages receiving routine dental care in our office. This is the time that we not only thoroughly clean your teeth, but we also inspect them for problems such as decay. We see many of our patients only two times a year for their routine cleanings, which leaves the majority of their dental care in their hands. We know that sometimes your oral hygiene routine can be a little lax, especially after a long day, but we want to stress the importance of caring for your teeth properly each and every day. Caring for your teeth properly now will save you a lot of time in our office and additional expenses that can add up over time. We are going to share some dental health tips to keep you out of the dentist’s chair:
Are you a parent to a young child, or do you have a young child in your life? If so, you know that children can have a mind of their own at times. It can be particularly challenging for parents to get their children to brush their teeth. Then, after hounding them endlessly for them to brush their teeth, you find out they didn’t do it. It can be a vicious cycle, day after day. We know parents want their children to learn proper oral hygiene to create lasting habits and help avoid tooth decay, one of the most common chronic conditions in children. We want to share some helpful ways you can help prevent the child in your life from developing tooth decay.
At Family Friendly Dentistry, we want you and your family to have excellent oral health. This is one of the reasons we are passionate about routine hygiene examinations for you and your family every four to six months. During these appointments we are able to remove any lingering plaque and bacteria from your mouth as well as inspect your teeth for signs of decay, gum disease, and oral cancer.
When was the last time you visited our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning? If it has been some time since your last appointment, we encourage you to schedule your next visit today. We know that your life is busy, but the longer you postpone routine examinations, the greater the chance you will experience a dental emergency or some type of oral health complication. Delaying your examination and cleaning can eventually affect your overall health as well. Read on to learn more about the importance of routine appointments.

With all that is going on in the world, you may be thinking, “What are the best ways to maintain my health, including my dental health?” While it’s well known that keeping a consistent dental hygiene regimen of daily flossing and brushing, cutting back on sugary foods is also a great way to help prevent cavities.
