Cleaning and Prevention
Dentistry is based on the principle of prevention. We recommend that all patients have biannual cleanings and examinations. Not only do these help you to obviate dental problems before they arise, but they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. A professional cleaning removes hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. Even if you haven’t had professional cleaning carried out for over two years, it’s never too late to treat your teeth.
What are some preventative measures that I can take?
| Brush with a fluoride toothpaste
| Use a soft-bristled toothbrush after each meal
| Floss daily before bedtime
| Use an oral rinse after flossing
| Avoid sugary foods, coffee, and tobacco
