Why And How You Should Care For Your Teeth
What Is Preventative Dentistry?
Preventative dentistry involves establishing habits that will keep your teeth healthy and avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. During your regular visit at Greenway Smiles, your dental hygienist will point out any issues that you may be having with your oral hygiene. Your hygienist will perform a cleaning, dental exam, an oral cancer exam, and perform any necessary X-rays. We will also evaluate the appearance of your teeth and recommend any aesthetic procedures that will enhance your smile, such as cosmetic or orthodontic procedures.
What You Can Do To Prevent Tooth Decay
Establishing at-home oral hygiene habits is essential to keeping your teeth healthy. Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing after eating will help to remove plaque and decay. Plaque is difficult to remove and the best at-home habits may not be enough to keep it a bay. This is why it is so important to schedule regular dental visits and allow our trained staff of oral hygienists to catch any problems that may be lurking before they manifest themselves.
Help Us Help You Take Care Of Your Teeth!
Our recommendation is to visit Greenway Smiles twice a year for regular cleanings and preventative treatments. When you do this, we can detect any problems early, when they are much easier (and less costly) to fix.
If you do not have an appointment scheduled, please reach out to us by calling (571) 222-4243 or sending us an email. Here at Greenway Smiles, we’re excited to help keep you healthy and happy!
