What can I do to maintain dental health?
Maintaining dental health is really pretty easy. All the things you were told as a child about taking care of your teeth still hold true, so you probably already know the basics – brush for two minutes two or three times a day and clean between your teeth with floss. These simple steps will go a long way toward keeping your teeth healthy.
You can also maximize your oral hygiene routine by following a healthy diet and avoiding sugary or acidic food and drinks. Regular professional cleanings are the best way for us to help you stay one step ahead of decay and disease, so be sure to make and keep your scheduled appointments.
During these cleanings, one of our hygienists will remove any plaque or tartar buildup on your teeth and look for any potential problems. The best weapon we have against problems like periodontal disease is prevention, which includes regular cleanings and exams.
But your daily dental care is really up to you. Follow the basic routine of brushing and flossing, maintaining a healthy diet, and scheduling regular appointments at our Monroe dental office for professional cleanings and routine exams.
Please call our office, and we will be happy to schedule your next dental cleaning and exam.
