Proper dental care is important for all ages.

Good dental health requires regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings, so small problems don’t become more serious and expensive to treat. It is recommended that you receive professional dental check-ups and cleaningss at least 1-2 times per year.

Your teeth were designed to last a lifetime, and they can with proper care, which includes correct gum care.

How to avoid dental problems? Good daily dental practices, including:

  • Brush after meals with a toothbrush that has soft or medium bristles
  • Use toothpaste with fluoride
  • Use dental floss every day
  • Eat fewer sweets, especially between meals
  • Do not smoke or chew tobacco products
  • Visit your dentist for regular check-ups
