Cleaning and Prevention

Prevention is the best treatment in dentistry.  Regular dental exams help to identify potential dental issues before they become problematic or painful.  Cleanings leave your gums healthier and your teeth cleaner and whiter. A professional cleaning removes hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone.  It also involves a fluoride treatment to help protect and your teeth.

What are some preventative measures I can take?

  • Brush with a fluoride toothpaste

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush after each meal

  • Floss daily before bedtime

  • Use an oral rinse after flossing

  • Avoid sugary foods, coffee, and tobacco
