Proper dental care
Good dental care requires a group effort. The patient, hygienist, and dentist work together to maintain the quality and health of the teeth, gums, and oral cavity. A healthy mouth enhances a patient’s quality of life. The patient’s role is to follow proper oral hygiene at home. Good dental habits include:
Brush the teeth at least twice per day, after every meal is ideal but morning and before bed are sufficient.
Floss the teeth daily.
Replace the toothbrush or toothbrush head every three to six months.
Have routine cleanings with the dentist every six months or as recommended.
The importance of dental examinations
Routine dental exams involve cleanings, possibly x-rays, and an assessment of the teeth and gums. The teeth are thoroughly cleaned to remove built-up tartar. They are checked for issues such as signs of decay or periodontal disease. Biological periodontal therapy or probiotic therapy may be performed if necessary. Treating problems early increases the likelihood of successful treatment and fewer future problems. A dentist’s goal is to maintain your natural teeth and the integrity of your mouth. Routine exams help him achieve that goal.
During dental appointments, the dental team educates patients on appropriate oral care. Patients who are experiencing issues or problems should discuss them with the dentist in order to address them and seek solutions for the problems. Routine appointments are held every six months unless otherwise. If problems arise, they are addressed. The timing of appointments is precisely scheduled so that if issues that may arise can be quickly and easily corrected. Patients are unique individuals and treatment plans are custom created based on needs.
