During your first appointment, we will discuss your medical and dental history, plan effective cleaning methods to ensure your teeth stay healthy, perform an examination and cleaning, and schedule any necessary appointments for further procedures.
Regular brushing, flossing, and oral rinses will help maintain the health of your teeth. Be sure to clean all the nooks and crannies around your teeth, including behind and between them. Gently brush your gums, tongue, and palate to keep breath fresh and maintain healthy gums as well.
Tooth decay is generally caused by a lack of care for your teeth. This can be exacerbated by constantly eating and drinking sugary foods or beverages, drinking a lot of soda, or just plain not brushing and flossing.
Regular brushing and flossing, combined with regular checkups at the dentist will help reduce the likelihood of developing gum disease. Treat your gums with care just like your teeth, and they will be healthy and disease free.
