For a lifetime of great oral health
Prevention is the key to great oral health. Better diet, medical care, and other factors are allowing us to live longer lives. Unfortunately, our teeth have not adapted to our longer life span and need help to last as long as we do. If you want to have your teeth for your whole life, here is what to do:
- • Brush, floss, and use recommend dental aids correctly, at least once a day. Use a fluoride-containing mouthrinse daily.
- • Keep your hygiene review appointments at the intervals recommended.
- • Choose the procedure and material that will last you the longest. All dental materials have a life expectancy, after which time they fail and must be replaced.
- • Gum disease can start at any time. Genetics, diet, oral self-care, medications, and general health can all have an influence. Gum disease is both site-specific (most often starts in a localized area) and episodic (can begin at any time). It is also painless in its early stages. If anything abnormal is detected you will be immediately referred.
- • Our treatment recommendations are always based on your needs.
- • We have listened to what you want and examined your month. Most patients can have all the best dentistry they want and deserve. It just takes a little planning. We can help with that too. Appointments can be made with a dental practitioner as this will be needed for some treatment plans, follow the above recommendations and do it right the first time.
