As much as we are all about treating existing issues to our patient’s satisfaction, we also truly believe that taking preventative measures is key. Although we’re always happy to see you, we’re certain you’d like to take easy steps to stay out of our chair!
At Jensen Lakes Dental, we believe that the best solution to both obtaining and maintaining a healthy smile is prevention. One of the best things you can do for your oral health is to make sure that you’re getting regular cleanings and checkups so your teeth are routinely deep cleaned, and monitored.
A deep cleaning is necessary as regular brushing and flossing cannot remove hardened plaque or tartar – only a specialist can properly and accurately fix this problem for you, and leave you with a clean and healthy smile. Make sure you’re booking a hygiene appointment every six months for optimal oral health!
A strict brushing and flossing routine when at home is also a crucial step. You need to brush your teeth at least twice per day, one of those times falling around the bedtime mark. This is because saliva production decreases while you’re asleep, offering less resources to help keep your mouth fresh and free of any lingering debris.
Developing and sticking to these habits will help you achieve a lifetime of great oral health, and help to curb the possibility of serious future ailments, such as periodontitis, bone loss, and cavities.
These healthy habits also help to maintain any fillings you may have, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Let’s work together to achieve and maintain the best oral health possible!
