Anyone who performs general dentistry spends a lot of time performing dental procedures designed to eliminate infection. But the best way to maintain excellent dental health is to prevent yourself from having to undergo any of those procedures in the first place!
By following a few basic steps, you can keep your smile healthy for years to come. To help you prevent major dental issues, Robert M. Davis DDS & Associates are happy to check your teeth and give you dental advice whenever you may need it. Contact us at our Raytown Dentist Office (816) 358-0800 or at our Pleasant Hill Dentist Office (816) 540-3110 to schedule a dental exam.
Daily Dental Care
How you take care of your teeth at home determines how your teeth will look to friends, co-workers, and anyone else you meet. So, daily dental care is an important part of your overall dental health. However, it’s not the whole picture.
Any healthy daily routine also involves regular checkups with a dentist to make sure there are no major issues you’ve been missing. In order to take excellent care of your teeth, you should:
- See your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning
- Brush your teeth twice a day
- Floss your teeth daily
- Eat a healthy, balanced diet low in sugar
These are the minimum steps that everyone should be taking, but you can do more. The equipment you are using matters as well. Make sure you are changing your toothbrush every 3 months or so, and specialized floss brushes can make the flossing process a lot easier and more effective.
Professional Dental Cleanings and Exams
Your appointment with a dentist every six months is such an important part of dentistry because there are a lot of things about your teeth that you may not be able to see at a glance. White teeth are not always healthy teeth, and Dr. Davis has the equipment and knowledge of dentistry necessary to diagnose any problems that may arise.
At Robert M. Davis DDS & Associates, our dental team is professional, compassionate, and experienced enough to give you an excellent dental cleaning experience. We can check your teeth and help you build a personal dental care plan to maintain your oral health for as long as possible.
