CARE & PREVENTION
Preventive Dental Care
Saves Time, Money & Pain
It use to be thought that good and bad
teeth were simply inherited and some people were just
destined to lose their teeth. This is no longer so.
Studies confirm that a number of key factors help determine
whether you keep your teeth or lose them.
You can help to keep your teeth a lifetime
by following a rather simple plan. Eat a healthy diet.
Take a multivitamin with minerals at least once a day.
Brush the teeth you want to keep
several times a day and especially well just before
going to sleep. Also floss and/or water irrigate your
teeth just before bed time to get loose food particles
out from between your teeth. And yes, see your dentist
for preventive visits regularly.
Studies increasingly show that regular
professional dental cleanings, every 2-6 months, help
remove food and plaque that you routinely miss and remain
a vital part of keeping teeth and gums healthy. Professional
dental cleanings and checkups save time, money and pain
because small problems can be found and treated before
they get bigger.
