Keep Your Winning Smile
The foundation of good oral health is preventive care. That means doing your part to fight cavities and tooth decay and to protect your teeth from injuries.
This is a team effort, and you are the team leader.
You already know what to do. Brush your teeth (twice daily) and clean between your teeth (once per day with dental floss or another interdental cleaner). This is how you remove harmful bacteria, plaque buildup, and food particles from your mouth. That reduces your risk of developing
Getting regular professional dental cleanings and exams should be part of your game plan as well. No one brushes and flosses perfectly every time, which is why more than 90 percent of people with have at least one cavity and more than 70 percent of people will have gum infections during their lives. Professional cleanings are how you remove plaque and tartar buildup that you may have missed.
As part of your dental exams, we used advanced technology like the DIAGNOdent, digital X-rays, and intraoral cameras to take a close look at your mouth. If we find any signs of decay or gum disease, we want to deal with it as quickly as possible.
Getting rid of bad bacteria is good, but it’s not going to protect you from a baseball or an elbow to the mouth on the basketball court. However, we can make a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard for you at our office. Athletes who wear this kind of protection are 60 times less likely to have dental injuries than athletes who don’t wear them.
Next Level Options
A good oral care routine is important to your long-term oral health. However, you can take things to the next level by taking advantage of our full range of services.
Cleanings can remove the things that cause cavities, but you also can make your teeth stronger and more resistant to decay. Many parents will get dental sealants for their children, although they are effective for adults, too. Sealants create a protective barrier for your teeth that make it more difficult for bacteria to damage your teeth. Fluoride treatments can actually repair minor damage before it turns into decay and can strengthen your teeth.
