We recommend making regularly scheduled checkups twice a year to ensure great oral health and mouth function.

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
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.
