The key to a healthy smile
Because our overall health is directly linked to our oral health, prevention is crucial. It is easier to prevent decay and disease than it is to treat it. Doing what you can to keep your teeth and gums healthy can save you both time and money in the long run which is why the team at DaVinci Dentistry & Implants promotes preventative care.
Why practice preventative care?
It is no secret that prevention is better than treatment when it comes to oral health. Our specialists always want what is best for their patients and encourage them to have their teeth cleaned every six months, or at least once a year. This is the best way to prevent oral health problems which will save you both time and money in the long run.
How to practice preventative care
- Brush your teeth twice a day. Brushing your teeth in the mornings and before you go to bed is the first step to preventative care. It is also important to use toothpaste that contains fluoride. This will help strengthen your teeth and prevent unwanted bacteria growth.
- Floss your teeth regularly. After a meal, you should floss in between your teeth to remove leftover food. If food is not removed it will eventually rot which causes bad breath and unwanted bacterial growth.
- Regular dental check-ups and cleanings. It is recommended to visit the dentist every 6 months or at least once a year for a dental examination and cleaning. This will help identify problems at an early stage (if present), which can save you thousands of dollars.
