There is no substitution for your natural teeth and we will make every effort to help you keep your teeth for as long as possible. The most important aspect of dental health is home care and oral hygiene.
The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice a day for at least 2 minutes and flossing once a day. Do you have a favorite song? On average, your favorite song is about 3 minutes long so turn it on and let the time fly by!
No matter how perfect your home hygiene is, no one can completely remove all of the plaque and eventually this turns into tartar and then calculus. The only way to remove tartar and calculus is through regular professional dental cleanings (or prophys). The average patient recommendation is every 6 months, but those who build up tartar fast or have a past history of gum or periodontal disease may need cleanings every 3-4 months. We are willing to customize your cleaning schedule to help you be the happiest and healthiest you can be.
