A healthy mouth is a happy mouth
Preventive Dental ServicesPreventive dental care is key to keeping your teeth healthy throughout your lifetime. Not only does good oral health mean you are less likely to need potentially costly dental procedures, but proper oral health can also impact your general health. A combination of routine dental check-ups, cleanings, and healthful habits of brushing and flossing will help you maintain a healthy and happy mouth.

Preventive Care Is Important
When Was Your Last Dental Checkup?
Preventive dental care is important throughout your life, no matter your age. By practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular checkups with your dentist, you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come. Here are a few simple ways that you can prevent the build-up of plaque and cavities:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Use fluoride toothpaste to remove food particles and plaque from the tooth surfaces. Also be sure to brush the top surface of your tongue; this will remove any extra plaque-causing food particles, and help keep your breath fresh!
- Clean between your teeth by flossing at least once a day. You can also use a mouthwash to help kill bacteria and freshen your breath. Decay-causing bacteria can linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. Floss and mouthwash will help remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
Eat a balanced diet, and try to avoid extra-sugary treats. Nutritious foods such as raw vegetables, plain yogurt, cheese, or fruit can help keep your smile healthy.
- Remember to schedule regular checkups with your dentist every six months for a professional teeth cleaning.
Ask your dentist about dental sealants, protective plastic coatings that can be applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay often starts.
If it’s been six months since your last dental checkup, then it’s time to contact our practice and schedule your next appointment!
