Brushing Daily

Brushing Daily

The most important part of preventive dentistry is to brush your teeth daily with fluoride toothpaste approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). Most people should replace their toothbrushes three to four times per year or as the bristles start to fray.

Floss Daily

Daily flossing is also recommended. Flossing helps to clean out the tight spaces between the teeth. If you have braces, you may need to use floss threaders to get between the metal brackets.

Eat A Balanced Diet

Eat A Balanced Diet

Eating a balanced diet also helps to protect your teeth by providing them with the nutrients they need. Limit your sugar intake, including simple carbohydrates like white bread, and drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Dental Visits

Regular dental visits starting at 1 year old is a fantastic way for early detection and optimal oral hygiene. We also educate parents about some common problems children may face, including thumb sucking, bruxism, and baby bottle decay.
