Prevention in 5 Easy Steps
Brush your teeth carefully at least once every 24 hours. It requires about two to three minutes to properly clean your teeth.
Floss your teeth daily. Flossing cleans those areas your toothbrush simply can’t reach ~ pay special attention to the areas between the teeth and under the gum line.
Eat a well-balanced diet! Avoid sweet foods and drinks, especially between meals. Try to avoid or cut back on smoking. Smoking can promote serious dental problems such as gum disease and oral cancer.
Check your gums regularly for the leading cause of adult tooth loss ~ gum disease: red, puffy or tender gums; gums that bleed even slightly when you brush or floss; persistent bad breath. Call us if any of these signs are apparent to you.
Don’t wait until it hurts. See us regularly for preventive checkups and professional cleanings. Regular visits are the best way to prevent problems and unnecessary expenses.
