How should I care for my smile daily?

Regardless of your dental health or your risk of tooth decay or gum disease, you should brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and floss between each tooth at least once. This routine coupled with routine visits to your dentist is usually enough to keep teeth decay and gum disease at bay and ensure that your teeth remain healthy and strong from day to day.

What kind of preventative care does my dentist provide?

The American Dental Association recommends that patients of all ages and dental conditions see their dentist at least twice a year for regular dental examinations and professional cleanings. These visits allow your dentist to find and treat issues like teeth decay or gum disease in their earliest stages when they require less invasive procedures to repair. Regular cleanings give your teeth a clean slate, removing all decay-causing plaque and tartar from the teeth.
