Caring For Your Teeth
Preventative dentistry involves establishing habits that will keep your teeth healthy and avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. During your regular visit our dental hygienist will point out any issues that you may be having with your oral hygiene. Your hygienist will perform a cleaning, dental exam, an oral cancer exam, and take any necessary x-rays. We will also evaluate the appearance of your teeth and recommend any aesthetic procedures that will enhance your smile, such as cosmetic or orthodontic procedures.
Establishing at-home oral hygiene habits is essential to keeping your teeth healthy. Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing after eating will help to remove plaque and decay. Plaque is difficult to remove and the best at-home habits may not be enough to keep it a bay. This is why it is so important to schedule regular dental visits and allow our trained staff of oral hygienists to catch any problems that may be lurking before they manifest themselves.
Our recommendation is to visit us twice a year for regular cleanings and preventative treatments. By doing this you’ll have less frequent major issues with your oral health.
If you do not have an appointment scheduled please reach out to us by calling (734) 762-4852 or send us an email. We’re excited to help keep you healthy and happy.
