Spring is the season for new beginnings! We invite you to take this opportunity for spring renewal to invest in your dental health.
While cleaning up the rest of the house, take a moment to consider how long it’s been since you’ve had a new toothbrush. Buy new toothbrushes and change them out on a regular basis – every three months is a good guideline.
If you’ve slipped out of good habits like brushing and flossing regularly, re-establish these good dental habits now that spring has arrived! Start with brushing your teeth twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. It’s essential for good dental health to floss once a day – before bed is the easiest way to make it part of a good dental routine!
As you prepare for the excitement of the warm weather ahead, why not add a dental visit to this year’s spring-cleaning list? According to the Academy of General Dentistry, a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year can improve your oral health. A dental exam and cleaning may seem like a little thing, but regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings can prevent major oral problems, or at least arrest them in their early stages.
Periodontal disease causes more tooth loss than tooth decay. Many Americans have periodontal disease and don’t know it because it’s painless in the early stages. Regular brushing and flossing will help you avoid periodontal disease, but home care alone will not prevent it. A professional dental cleaning is designed to preserve good dental health, prevent the spread of disease and give the dentist an opportunity to locate other areas in the mouth that may need attention. If gum disease is diagnosed early, it can be treated and reversed.
No matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen the dentist, we offer professional cleaning with a gentle touch and a thorough comprehensive oral exam. If you’re spring cleaning, start with your mouth!
