Preventive Dentistry

Though it’s tempting to skip the dentist so that you don’t need to hear about issues or have them treated, early diagnosis usually means a simpler, less invasive procedure.

    Because the majority of adults and children are visiting their dentist twice a year, it’s vital that you take great care of your teeth and gums every other day of the year at home. To prevent dental health issues, you have to brush your teeth two times per day with toothpaste. Whether you use an electric or manual toothbrush, be sure you are brushing for two minutes using mild pressure as you move your toothbrush in little circles over your gums and teeth. In addition, you have to be certain that you’re switching to a new toothbrush (or brush head) each three months or sooner if the bristles are worn out. Along with brushing two times each day, you ought to be flossing once per day. Correct flossing removes plaque and debris in between your teeth and also helps stimulate your gums. If you are unsure about your flossing or brushing technique, ask your hygienist or dentist for advice during your next visit.
