Our doctor recommends that you follow these basic steps to help your smile stay in optimal health:

  • Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that includes fluoride.

  • Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.

  • Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.

  • Maintain your regular visits to the doctor every six months. During these visits, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments.
