Preventive oral care strategies for children and adults include home care activities as well as regular dental office visits. The most important prevention technique is good home care - brushing and flossing at least twice a day is a great oral hygiene habit that significantly helps ensure a lifetime of dental health.
To keep your smile at its healthiest, we also recommend our patients regular cleanings and check-ups. Dental cleanings and screenings are recommended every six months to remove dental plaque and stains you’re unable to remove yourself, as well as to check for signs of tooth decay. These dental checkups are frequent enough for us to catch oral health concerns in the early stages and prevent their advance.
