At Care 4 Teeth we can help ensure the long term health of your smile by maintaining your teeth and gums with regular preventive checkups and scale and cleans which result in less costly visits and less dental emergencies. Our aim is to help every single patient achieve their dream smile.
Regular check-ups will prevent minor problems from becoming major ones which is far more cost effective and maintainable.
Maintaining good oral hygiene over a lifetime takes discipline and commitment. In fact, your smile is one of the first things people notice about you; and usually leaves a lasting impression on others. At Care 4 teeth, we recommend a visit every six months. This will help prevent or minimize problems that arise due to decay, unhealthy eating, poor brushing and lack of flossing. With regular check-ups, any problems identified at an early stage are easier to deal with and will help prevent further damage.
Routine scale and clean checkups can help prevent rising complications and ensure that your mouth is overall healthy. Many times we put off irritating sore gums or don’t notice a decaying tooth until the pain gets considerably worse and the only way to detect it is through routine dental checkups. In the routine checkups your teeth, gums, and jaw are examined and any issues arising are dealt with instantaneously. Every 6 months your teeth require scaling and polishing which is also performed during your routine checkups. The purpose of a scale and clean is to remove any build up of plaque and tartar on the teeth, between the teeth and along the gum line. While some people may only require 6 monthly check ups, some might require more frequent visits, so it’s up to the dentist to suggest the time of check-ups on the basis of your basic dental and oral health.
Brushing your teeth is the most important part of dental hygiene. Care for Teeth recommends brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristle brush.
Flossing is an important when it comes to maintaining healthy teeth. Regular flossing removes plaque and bacteria that cannot be reached with your toothbrush. If you don’t floss daily, you are not cleaning as thoroughly and effectively as you should be.
