Insecure about your smile
Do you cover your smile?
Cleaning and Prevention
Daily brushing and flossing are great for healthy teeth and gums. But only a professional can pick up underlying diseases or cavities, which is why we recommend a professional clean every 3 to 6 months.
Every re-care appointment begins with a thorough look at your teeth, gums and surrounding mouth tissue, and includes a check for oral cancer. We’ll also take x-rays and photos if required, but don’t worry, that only ever happens once we’ve got your go-ahead. Once that’s done, we’ll finish up with a full scale and clean, along with an explanation of any treatment suggestions for the future.
Preventative dental care
When it comes to your oral health, prevention is better than cure. To ensure your teeth and gums stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible, we recommend the following preventative care routine.
For the sparkliest smile in the room, brush your teeth twice a day with a soft bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste.
Your toothbrush can’t clean between your teeth the way floss can. Floss either before or after brushing, at least once a day.
Clean your tongue
A clean tongue is highly underrated. So before brushing your teeth, give your tongue a once-over to get rid of any food particles that would otherwise putrefy on your tongue. And bonus, it’ll also freshen your breath and further reduce your chances of dental decay.
Avoid sticky and sugary foods
Sticky foods get stuck to your teeth and can be seriously hard to remove. They’re also great nutrition for decay causing bacteria. So stay clear of sugary and sticky foods, and eat a balanced diet that’s heavy on fruits and raw veggies.
