PreventionIt is important to take excellent care of your mouth to ensure that your mouth, gums, and teeth stay healthy. Taking care of your mouth is one of the best and easiest way to prevent any dental issues.

It is important to brush your teeth at least two times per day. This will help to remove any plaque and food particles that have gotten stuck on your teeth. We recommend that you make sure that you reach each side of your tooth including the inside and outside. To keep your breath fresh, you should also brush your tongue.

The American Dental Association states that flossing should be done to remove plaque that gets stuck in between your teeth. It will also help to get rid of any plaque that your toothbrush missed. If you are not flossing, you will have issues with tartar, cavities, and gum disease.

Seeing a dentist regularly will also ensure that your teeth stay healthy. It is recommended that you visit the dentist every six months. Our office has the latest technology to assist patients in the prevention of gum disease while also keeping their mouths healthy.
