Spend a Few Minutes Each Day Caring for Your Pearly Whites
Regular tooth brushing and flossing is an easy routine that pays huge dividends that are essential if you’d like your pearly whites to last a lifetime. By spending less than ten minutes each day, you can maintain great dental health.
We recommend you brush your teeth at least twice a day. The best times to brush your teeth are first thing in the morning and last thing at night, or after every meal if you can. Flossing is also important for oral health to reach those places in between your teeth that your toothbrush cannot.
Why Come and See Us Regularly?
Regular dental examinations allow Dr. Chad to closely monitor the condition of your dental health. Any small changes can be detected and treated, often before you are aware there is a need and before further damage can occur.
We are evaluating the health of more than just your teeth and gums during your visit. While the health of your teeth and gums are carefully evaluated for decay and bacteria, a thorough examination of your tissue, bone, and joint health are completed as well.
Did you know we also check for oral cancer? This is a simple, painless check that could even save your life one day. Oral cancer is far more treatable when caught early on and dentists are specially trained to detect the first signs and symptoms.
Why See a Dental Hygienist?
Our dental hygienists have advanced clinical education and knowledge specifically to professionally clean your teeth and care for your gums. During a dental cleaning, any buildup of bacteria that can lead to decay-causing plaque and calculus is thoroughly removed. Afterward, your teeth are gently polished, to give you a smooth, sparkling smile. Our dental hygienists are a wealth of knowledge and love helping patients understand how to maintain their oral health between visits.
What is Gum Disease?
Have you noticed your gums bleed when you brush or floss or appear more red than a healthy shade of pink? Maybe your teeth look longer than you remember or your gums appear to be shrinking? It’s possible you may have a bacterial infection, or gum disease. There are different treatments available for gum disease therapy. Gum disease is actually a common condition affecting more than half the adult population, often due to unnoticed warning signs.
Without treatment, gum disease can cause tooth and bone loss. Recent studies have revealed that gum disease is linked to systemic overall health problems including serious conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and strokes. The good news is that we can diagnose gum disease and provide the most appropriate and up-to-date treatment for oral and overall health.
