Your everyday care makes a big difference in your oral health. Having a consistent routine goes a long way. You should be brushing and flossing daily. Brush twice a day for two minutes at a time with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste with fluoride. Floss daily to remove food particles from between your teeth and gums.

2. Regular Checkups

Regular Checkups

No one brushes or flosses perfectly every day. This is why regular cleanings and exams can go a long way toward avoiding or identifying problems. We will remove plaque and tartar buildup and can answer any questions about your oral care at home.

3. Added Protection

Added Protection

To further reduce your likelihood of cavities, choose to get dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Sealants are a barrier against harmful bacteria. Fluoride strengthens teeth, so they are less prone to develop decay.
