The one thing you can do to better your oral health is practice good dental hygiene. This requires a team effort between you and the team at Advanced Dental Care. Your role is daily brushing and flossing, and our role is providing you with professional dental cleanings and exams.
At your twice-yearly dental checkups, one of our dental hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar in order to reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Plaque is a biofilm that develops throughout the day in everyone’s mouth. And while plaque is natural, an accumulation of plaque can be a problem. Plaque harbors bacteria, and this bacterium converts the sugar in food into the acid that eventually causes cavities. Plaque also contributes to the development of gum disease – both gingivitis and periodontitis. When you come to Advanced Dental Care for your dental cleaning and exam, you can rely on our staff to carefully check your gums for any signs of periodontal disease.
Brushing and flossing is one thing, but brushing and flossing correctly is quite another. Dr. Jorgenson and his team want you to practice an at-home oral hygiene routine that is the best it can be.So, for proper brushing and flossing, follow these tips :
