Initial Oral Examinations
Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. We recommend biannual cleanings and examinations for all patients. Not only do they help you prevent dental problems before they arise, they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. Our professional cleanings remove hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. They also involve a fluoride treatment and polish to help protect your teeth and gums. Even if you haven’t had a cleaning in over two years, it’s never too late to treat your teeth.
What preventative measures can I take?
Brush with a fluoride toothpaste
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush twice a day
Floss daily before bedtime
Use an oral rinse after flossing
Avoid sugary beverages, highly acidic foods, and tobacco
