As important as it is to have a complete oral examination and teeth cleaning done here at Affordable Dental Clinics once every six months, you must also engage in good oral hygiene, maintain proper nutrition, and engage in overall healthy habits if you want to keep your teeth free of cavities and your gums strong and healthy. We’re pleased to provide the expert guidance that will succeed in keeping you on the right track, both now and in the future.
Certainly, there are many reasons that you should give the necessary attention to your nutrition, but when it comes to your oral wellness it means providing the support and structure that makes for reliable teeth and gums in the first place. Furthermore, sugars and starches are the catalysts for the growth of dental plaque, whose bacterial acids erode tooth enamel and irritate, inflame, and infect gum tissue. Our Greeley dentist assures you that it’s a very good idea to reduce your consumption of foods and drinks containing either. Less plaque means less chance of cavities and gum disease. It is with your daily oral hygiene, however, that you do the most for promoting optimal well-being of your teeth and gums. It’s not possible to stop the formation of dental plaque 100%, but you can remove most of it when you brush your teeth and floss thoroughly. Follow the advice of our Greeley dentist by brushing when you wake up, after meals, and before bedtime. Floss before you go to sleep, too. Give dental plaque less opportunity to cause damage.
Supplement the above by visiting our office two times per year. Our Greeley dentist will diagnose and treat cavities promptly, and with a professional teeth cleaning, hardened tartar is removed and early stage gum disease is reversed. That along with your own attention to good habits is the most effective strategy possible. Contact us now to book an appointment.
