No matter how old you are, you should continue to visit the dentist at least twice a year. This is your best chance to have plaque and tartar removed from the spots in your mouth that you have trouble cleaning on your own. Also, routine examinations make it more likely that we’ll identify oral health issues in their earliest stages. Treating small problems quickly will not only improve the health of your smile, but it will also help lower the overall cost of dental care.
Fluoride is added to most toothpastes, mouthwashes, and other oral healthcare products because of the way it strengthens the enamel and makes it more resistant to tooth decay. For those who could use extra fluoride exposure, we can apply it directly to the teeth as a special paste. The extra protection will help keep your smile safe for the next six months until it’s time for your next checkup.
Stress and other factors can cause you to grind your teeth and clench your jaw during the night, which can result in morning headaches and eventual dental damage. To protect yourself from the negative consequences of this habit, we can give you a customized nightguard that separates the upper and lower arches of teeth. This will also help keep your jaws in a more relaxed position throughout the night so that you don’t experience as much discomfort in the morning.
When you go to the store to pick up toothpaste and mouthwash, you might find yourself overwhelmed with all your choices. Are you not confident whether you are making the right choices for your family’s oral care? Let us know what products you use during your next checkup and cleaning. If we think there’s room for improvement, we will recommend new products that your smile can benefit from.
