You want to keep your smile looking good and to maintain your healthy mouth. That’s what we are trying to do with our general dentistry.
Here are three ways you can protect your smile at our office.
1. Dental Checkups
You should complement your daily brushing and flossing by visiting us for dental checkups a few times each year. A professional cleaning can remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to cavities. A thorough exam can catch problems early so they don’t lead to more serious issues.
2. Gum Disease Treatments
Periodontal disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in the United States. It’s one of the reasons we strongly encourage you to floss and to visit us regularly. Despite that, most Americans will experience gum disease during their lives. Let us take care of it before it robs you of your smile.
3. Athletic Mouthguards
If you or your loved ones play sports, then you also should be wearing athletic mouthguards when you take the field or the court. Mouthguards can greatly reduce your risk of a dental injury, which can be costly to repair. A mouthguard, like a seat belt in a car, can minimize the impact of an accident.
