Good Oral Care  

Many adults believe that they are no longer susceptible to dental problems. However, adults are not protected from oral health issues. The safest method for maintaining a healthy mouth and body is scheduling regular dental checkups and professional cleanings.  

Developing an Oral Hygiene Routine  

Developing and sustaining a good oral hygiene habit is one of the most critical components of oral health. Healthy teeth help you feel and look good, and they make speaking and eating properly possible. Perhaps the biggest benefit is contributing to your overall wellbeing. Creating an effective oral hygiene plan is as easy as following these simple tips:  

 ·         Brush and floss thoroughly twice a day
 ·         Eat a balanced diet and limit snacking
 ·         Use dental products containing fluoride
 ·         Rinse with fluoride mouthwash  

You may not know that dental fillings begin to break down after being in place for about eight to 10 years. When this happens, bacteria and food can get below them and cause decay deep in the tooth. Call us if you notice any changes in existing fillings.
