Caring For Your Teeth

Only the dentist has the care, skill, and judgment to provide a comprehensive diagnosis about your oral health condition and to advise you on appropriate treatment and care. We can help you establish a routine of daily cleaning and preventive visits to keep your oral health good for life.

In our office, Dental Hygiene is about more than just preventing cavities. We take a comprehensive approach to Dental Hygiene, recognizing that maintaining strong healthy teeth and gums is part of an overall regimen to ensure your well-being.

Good Dental Hygiene practices not only make your teeth and gums feel fresh and vibrant; but also provide the basic foundation for lifelong health. Recent studies indicate that 90% of adults will develop Gum Disease during their lifetime. Gum Disease is the result of plaque and attacks the gums, bones and other supporting structures of the teeth.

The best way to remove decay-causing plaque is by brushing and cleaning between your teeth each and every day. Brushing removes plaque from tooth surfaces while flossing or interdental cleaners remove plaque from in between teeth (areas where the toothbrush cannot reach).

Taking proper care of your teeth and gums is a lifelong commitment. It includes a good oral hygiene routine that you follow at home, as well as regular visits to our dental office, for an overall "team" approach to your oral care. By taking these simple steps, there's every reason why you should keep your "oral health - good for life."
