Maintaining good oral hygiene remains one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums help you to not only look and feel good, but they allow you to eat and speak properly. Our caring and professional dental staff stresses daily preventive care — such as proper brushing and flossing — to prevent more serious problems from developing. Between regular dental visits to our full-service dental office, there are simple steps you can take to greatly decrease your risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems.

  • Brush thoroughly twice a day and floss daily
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit snacks between meals
  • Use dental products containing fluoride, especially toothpaste
  • Rinse with a fluoride mouth rinse if your dentist advises you to
  • Make sure that children under 12 drink fluoridated water
  • Schedule regular dental checkups for professional cleanings and exams
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months
