First Renew The Focus On Home Hygiene
If you are lucky enough to have kids, it is your responsibility to set a good example for your crew. It is no secret that they will be watching you and will pick up on your excellent daily hygiene habits at like brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash. What you do at home will be the foundation upon which we will build your program of preventive dentistry. The American Dental Association suggests you brush twice a day for two minutes at a stretch, and floss at least once each evening. Those things are non-negotiable if you expect to stay healthy throughout the year. That said, there will always be more work required to keep your mouth free of bacteria and your smile cavity-free. That’s where we come in.
Then Bring Them In For In-Office Dental Care
You will want to always have a top-notch dentist in your life, like Dr. Roeder or Dr. Kulp. Remember: any plaque that is missed by your best efforts at home will harden and become calculus (tartar). That calculus will begin wearing away at the enamel of your teeth, contributing to decay, tooth loss, and, eventually, bone loss. Nobody wants that for their loved ones. Most of the time, only a professional can see what is unfolding in your mouth before it creates problems that are painful and expensive to solve. What’s more, it often takes specialized tools that you won’t find in your medicine cabinet!
Professional Teeth Cleanings, Oral Exams, Etc.
The nice thing is that, as long as your family is in our care, we’ve got you covered. Our preventative treatments include extensive oral exams and teeth cleanings. We can also take it further by offering dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and other such precautions. And if anything should ever go awry, we are prepared to restore your smile in a hurry.
