What Is Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry involves the proactive approach to your oral health. Much like seeing the doctor for a physical every year, preventive dentistry involves routine appointments to clean and examine your teeth to detect any problems before they become serious.
Preventive care also involves the use of things like dental sealants and fluoride treatments to prevent and undo the damage caused by plaque acids. All our routine preventive services can be performed during your regularly scheduled appointments, so there’s no need for another trip!
How Often Should I See the Dentist?
In order to ensure the best possible level of oral health, you should see the dentist every six months for a cleaning and exam. This will allow us to remove excess plaque that you have a hard time reaching at home, and also check for potential problems before they get worse!
What Kind of Toothbrush Should I Use?
We always recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Hard bristles tend to irritate your gums and can cause damage to your enamel as well. Soft bristles and proper brushing can result in great oral hygiene at home!
You should always brush your teeth for at least two minutes, holding the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle to your teeth. Make sure to get every surface of each tooth, and floss once a day, as well!
