You have plenty of bacteria in your mouth that are threatening to harm your smile and create tooth decay. It’s important to do all you can to prevent this from happening. To help you do so, our dental team encourages you to do the following things on a regular basis:

-Clean your smile: Do your best to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth with mouthwash daily. These techniques will properly clean your smile and will eliminate the harmful substances and bacteria that will create tooth decay and other dental problems.

-Use fluoride: Fluoride is the best mineral for your teeth. It strengthens and nourishes your pearly whites and gives them the strength to fight off tooth decay and other dental issues. So, make sure you take advantage of our professional fluoride treatment when you come into our office and use fluoride products each day at home, like fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash.

-Visit your dentist: Visiting your dentist every six months for your dental cleaning and checkup is the best thing you can do for your smile. These appointments allow our team to deeply clean your smile as well as prevent and treat any dental problems you have.

These tips will help you maintain a strong and healthy smile for a lifetime.
