Brushing and flossing at home are a great start. But they’re just one part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
When you have your regular dental cleaning, you will also have a routine exam with the dentist and hygienist. We always ask if anything feels different or painful, and screen for indications of gum disease and oral cancer. This is the best way to catch little gum or decay problems before they become big, complex, expensive or painful problems.
Preventative dentistry will help your smile stay healthy and beautiful.
