Tips for keeping a beautiful smile!

Keeping your teeth clean, smooth and beautiful...
Proper oral hygiene is your key to a healthy, beautiful smile. Here are our and the American Dental Association's recommendations for at home care:

  • Brush 2-3 times every day with a flouride toothpaste (it doesn't matter which brand)
  • Floss once a day
  • Eat a healthy diet (fruits, vegetables, etc)
  • Limit consumption of sugary foodsand beverages. Soda drinks can destroy teeth faster than almost anything else
  • Eliminate or at least limit use of alchol, chewing tabacco, and cigarettes

We also recommend using an electric high-speed toothbrush in conjuction with a  waterpik for your daily at-home oral care.

And don't forget six-month professional cleanings and checkups. The American Dnetal Association recommends checkups every six months for those ages four and older.

Professional cleanings by qualified hygienists will remove bacteria and plaque, which can cause serious dental problems if not kept in check.

If you have not been seen recently call our office for an appointment!
