Cleaning and Prevention

Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. The best way pathway to a healthy problem free mouth is regular dental cleanings and checkup examinations.  Regularly scheduled visits help you quash dental problems before they arise, and they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter.  A professional cleaning removes hardened calculus that cannot be removed by brushing or flossing.  The frequency you should have dental cleanings typically ranges between 3 and 12 months and is dependant upon numerous factors including the health of your gums and bone,  the tenacity of the calculus you form, your level of homecare and systemic health considerations such as diabetes and hearth disease.

What are some preventative measures I can take?

  • Brush with a fluoridated 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
