Practicing good oral hygiene means maintaining your smile by visiting the dentist regularly and taking care of your teeth and gums between checkups. Our practice wants to make sure that you get the most out of your office visits, and that your teeth stay healthy for life! We’ll work with you to provide complete dental care, and show you how to maintain your smile at home.
Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular checkup, your hygienist will:
- Check for any problems that you may not see and/or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay.
- Provide a thorough teeth cleaning, rinse, and polish
Visiting with your dentist every six months gives you the chance to talk with your doctor and receive answers for any questions you may have regarding your oral health.
Choosing the Right Toothbrush and Toothpaste
From toothbrushes to dental floss and toothpaste to mouthwash, it’s important to choose the right products for your smile. Keep in mind that when you’re looking for a new toothpaste or toothbrush, be sure to choose one that has been approved by the American Dental Association (ADA).
