Oral Health

It should always be a priority to visit your dentist every 6-months to maintain great oral health. Oral health is the state of your mouth, teeth, and gums. We recommend making regularly scheduled checkups twice a year to ensure great oral health and mouth function.  At North Rivers Dental Associates, it is important that you are meeting with your dentist and practicing great dental habits at home!

Should I Worry About My Oral Health?

If you are practicing great dental hygiene, your oral health should be in tip-top shape. However, your oral health can be compromised with the following:

  • Dental Infections
  • Latex Allergy
  • Age
  • Tobacco
  • Piercings

Dental Hygiene Tips

In order to maintain great oral health, we recommend adding these to your daily oral hygiene practice:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss every night before bed in a U-shape motion
  • Sugary foods can create advanced plaque buildup
  • Add nutritional value to your diet that are good for your teeth

Cavity Prevention

If you are looking to prevent the onset of cavities, you can thwart tooth decay with fillings and fluoride treatments. Fillings are a material that “fills” your cavity after tooth decay is removed. Fluoride treatments are a natural fluoride coating that works by fighting off plaque and bacteria causing tooth decay.
