Cleaning and Prevention
Good oral health begins at home in the day to day maintenance we must be diligent about. It’s important to remember that brushing your teeth isn’t enough — your diet can play a factor in the health of your teeth and gums as well.
If patients practiced effective prevention, they would only need major procedures by choice, genetics, wear and tear of the dentition, or as a result of trauma. Microbiologic studies indicate that the bacterial buildup that leads to plaque and calculus development takes place over the course of three months. If you are really serious about prevention, you should have a preventative visit to the dentist every three months.
Being proactive can go a long way to ensuring a healthy smile!
