Spring Cleaning

We’ve all heard that you should visit the dentist every six months, but is it really that important?  Simply put, YES.

The first step to good oral health is brushing and flossing at home.  This gets rid of lingering food particles, combats bacteria that causes bad breath, and helps to prevent buildup of plaque.  While it’s generally difficult to get a deep cleaning at home, our dental hygienists and dentists have the tools to get to those hard-to-reach places and remove any tartar that has built up.  They will also check for cavities, gum tissue problems, fractures or discrepancies in the enamel of your teeth, as well as keep an eye on any reoccurring trouble areas you may have.

However, one of the most compelling reasons for paying a visit to your dentist regularly is prevention.  Poor dental hygiene can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and loss, and can have negative effects on your overall health.  According to the Center for Disease Control nearly fifty percent of adults in the U.S. are affected by gum disease.

Alternatively, good home dental care as well as regular dental checkups can help to keep teeth and gums healthy and prevent early tooth loss.  Potential issues are easier to treat if caught early!  We are also able to recommend products to aide in home care for specific issues you may be experiencing.

Our team is here to care for your preventive and restorative needs, as well as teeth whitening and Invisalign teeth straightening procedures.
