Preventative dental care is one of the most important aspects of maintaining good oral health
At our office, we know that each patient’s situation is unique; therefore, we customize a plan that is designed to meet your individual needs. Of course, educating our patients is always a part of that plan. We want you to know exactly how to care for your smile for years to come.
A strong regimen of cleaning is your first line of defense. Regular brushing and flossing is imperative, but it may not be enough. Plaque, the sticky, bacteria-filled film that constantly forms on the teeth and below the gum line, can harden and become tartar. Plaque and tartar cause periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to a host of problems, including tooth loss. Periodontal disease has also recently been linked to heart disease and stroke. To prevent periodontal disease, regular, professional cleanings are essential. At our office, we can remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gum line. With regular maintenance, you will be on your way to a cleaner, healthier smile!
