The first thing in good dental hygiene is to learn the proper way to brush and floss.
We teach you the right way to better dental health. Tooth loss is most generally due to gum disease and bone loss. To help prevent these losses, brushing properly and having a regular checkup and cleaning every six months is essential.
When gum disease is diagnosed it's important to receive regular treatment visits to prevent further deterioration.
Reasearch shows tobacco use in any form to be a contributing cause of gum disease which, if not treated early, can result in both bone and tooth loss. We can help by prescribing medication to help you quit. Please ask.
