The Importance of Prevention

Most dental issues are preventable and more easily managed if detected early. The key to early detection is regular visits to your dentist. In addition to these regular checkups, it is essential that you focus on good oral health daily. This includes:

  • Brushing properly twice daily
  • Flossing daily
  • Using an alcohol-free mouth rinse
  • Not smoking or using smokeless tobacco products
  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Avoiding sweet sticky foods
  • Avoiding sugar beverages
  • Brushing and flossing after eating
  • Chewing sugar-free gum after eating or drinking

 While your dentist can help correct dental issues, the responsibility largely falls on you. Make it your priority to think of your smile first. Prevent unwanted dental issues from arising by making good choices.

“Everything about this group is outstanding. I have never been happier with a dentist. Everything is spotlessly clean. Everyone is smiling and happy. You can get an appointment early in the morning or at night. I send all my friends looking for a dentist to them and nobody has been disappointed yet.”
