Questions and Answers: Reclaiming A Healthy Mouth

Question: What’s the first thing I should do if I’m ready to get my smile back into wonderful condition?

Answer: If you are ready to reestablish good oral health, you need to see us for a dental checkup and a dental cleaning. This will allow us to survey your smile, figure out whether you require treatments to restore your dental health, remove plaque and tartar buildup, and get you headed in the correct direction.

Question: What should I be doing at home? If my oral health isn’t in great shape, is it even worth brushing?

Answer: Brushing and flossing is always worthwhile. You will find that you get the best results by seeing us for your checkup and cleaning, so you are brushing teeth free of tartar buildup. We may also instruct you in best practices for your dental hygiene, so you make the most of your care at home.
