Healthy Habits Begin At Home
We are excited to be your trusted source for dentistry in Oregon City, Oregon. Our family-based practice knows that it requires a lot of effort to keep your mouth clean and your teeth radiant.
That’s why the team here wants to provide you with all the education that you will need to do your part to maintain good oral health in between office visits.
Start With A Toothbrush
According to the American Dental Association, you should be brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time. When you brush your teeth twice often you will have healthier gums and will be able to better fight off tooth decay.
Brushing Is Only The Beginning
Dental floss is another daily necessity, because brushing alone is never enough. Flossing your teeth will allow you to reach those hidden areas where food, bacteria, plaque, and tartar can build up waiting to cause trouble.
Find Out About Fluoride
Did you know that there is an easy way to get fluoride right in your home? And it doesn’t cost anything either! That’s right, our Oregon City tap water is fortified with fluoride.
Studies have shown that fluoride can help prevent cavities for folks of all ages. In some instances, it can even reverse the early stages of tooth decay.
When you visit our office, we can further explore some of the best ways to get all of the fluoride you need.
Hopefully we will have that conversation sooner rather than later!
Visit Your Oregon City Dentist
We love to get to know our patients and to have the opportunity to stay in-tune with their ongoing needs. Coming to see us every 3-6 months will go a long way towards maintaining health and happiness.
That’s because our professional teeth cleanings are effective at building on your preventative brushing, flossing, and rinsing.
The fact is, no matter how good you are at executing these things at home, there is always going to be plaque, calculus, and stain that can only be removed with our special dental instruments.
As an extra layer of protection, we also offer dental sealants. A sealant is white resin based material that fills the grooves in your teeth, where your toothbrush is not likely to reach. This treatment help your teeth ward off dangerous bacteria by acting as a barrier.
When we regularly examine your mouth we can see the state of your gums and teeth and make sure that everything is in order.
Take our word for it, prevention is always a better way to go. It’s not that we can’t fix things later. It’s just that it will inevitably involve more costs and pain the longer something goes untreated.
