Good Oral Hygiene
Practicing good oral hygiene means maintaining your smile by visiting your dentist regularly and taking care of your teeth and gums between checkups. At Byerly Family Dentistry we want to make sure that you get the most out of your office visits and that your teeth stay healthy for life! We will work with you to provide complete dental care and show you how to maintain your smile at home with the right dental products for you and your family.
Dental Cleanings and Regular Checkups
Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular checkup, your hygienist will complete the following:
- Check for any problems you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
- Provide a thorough teeth cleaning, rinse and polish
Visiting the dentist every six months gives you the chance to talk with your dentist and receive answers for any questions you may have about your oral health. Checkups are also a great way for you to find out about new treatments that may benefit your smile.
Choosing the Right Toothpaste and Toothbrush
From toothpaste and mouthwash to toothbrushes and dental floss, it is important to choose the right products for your smile. Keep in mind, when you are looking for a new toothpaste or toothbrush be sure to choose one that has been approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). Your dentist can also help by recommending certain products for use at home.
At Byerly Family Dentistry we pledge to keep your comfort in mind as we provide you with the oral care you need to stay healthy. Contact our office today to set up an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.
