Flossing is essential to your smile’s health. Regular use of dental floss is important for plaque removal, maintaining healthy gums, and preventing periodontal disease. By removing food particles and bacteria that build up between teeth, flossing helps keep your smile healthy and beautiful for life.
Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally present in many foods and water. Fluoride plays an important role in fighting tooth decay by making teeth more resistant to acid-producing bacteria. Over time, plaque and bacteria can contribute to the erosion of teeth enamel. By drinking fluoridated tap water, using toothpaste with fluoride, or rinsing with fluoridated mouthwash, you can protect your teeth against cavities.
To keep your teeth and gums healthy, it is important to schedule regular checkups and dental cleanings. The American Dental Association (ADA) advises adult patients to visit the dentist at least once every six months. Regular dental cleanings remove stains and plaque buildup, preventing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. If you experience a sudden onset of pain in your teeth or gums, immediately book an appointment with your local dentist. He or she will evaluate the problem and recommend the appropriate oral treatments for your case.
Some cosmetic dental treatments can be performed in one visit. Teeth whitening, dental bonding, or teeth shaping are examples of one-visit procedures. At our office, we can complete some dental bridges or cosmetic crowns in one visit. Veneers, dental implants, and complete smile makeovers may take multiple visits.
We recommend that you make an appointment to see the dentist as soon as your child gets their first tooth. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children be seen by six months after their first tooth erupts, or at one year of age, whichever comes first.
The purpose of veneers is to permanently hide any flaws in your teeth, providing you with a gorgeous new smile worthy of Hollywood. Most of us do not naturally have perfect-looking teeth.
