The Importance of Care and Prevention
Smile 32 Dental Centers focuses on the two best defenses against plaque, proper oral hygiene and regular visits. The goal is to preserve natural tooth structure, and detect any small problems before they become bigger ones.
In the long run, good hygiene and dental visits cost less. Teeth repair and replacement cost more and that is what you want to avoid.
Proper Care and Prevention
Proper care and prevention prevents tooth decay and gum disease, preserves natural tooth structure, and detects and treats serious oral problems early on.
Tips to Prevent Plaque
Smile 32 Dental Centers want to help you prevent plaque. Here’s how you can do it:
- Brush Your Teeth – with a soft-bristle brush with fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day. It is preferable to brush before bedtime, in the morning and after eating. The brush must reach all your teeth, and be replaced once the bristles wear down.
- Floss Your Teeth – Every day so that you can reach those places where your toothbrush will not reach.
- Schedule Regular Dental visits – Your dentist at Smile 32 Dental Centers recommend every 6 months. However, if you are prone to plaque build-up, we recommend visits that are more frequent. These visits include a thorough examination and a professional cleaning.
- Discuss painful or problem areas – Your dentist at Smile 32 Dental Centers as soon as possible, so that more serious problems can be prevented.
Regular Visits are a Must
There are two reasons why regular visits are essential. Your dentist can thoroughly clean your teeth and examine your teeth and gums for serious problems. Prevention of serious problems is essential care.
We never judge or criticize you for not keeping up on regular visits. You won’t get scolded here. We provide helpful and gentle care to develop the smile you’ve always wanted.
