Dental Care And Education To Keep You Smiling
At Clearwater Dental Associates, we can appreciate that, with summer behind us, life is once again busy for Florida families attempting to juggle work, school, sports, and the like.
That’s why we try to keep things easy for you by offering dental solutions for the entire family in one convenient office (on Druid Road). Whether you need bonding, braces,oral appliances, implants, fillings, whitening, dentures, emergency care, preventative cleanings and exams, or something else, we’ve more than likely got you covered.
We welcome patients at every stage of life. Yet, our Clearwater Dental Associates team believes wholeheartedly that good oral health comes from starting regular dental care and education at a young age and continuing with it for the rest of your days.
So, we have a few educational points to pass along in today’s blog post.
Brush From The Beginning
You should start brushing from an early age and do it everyday of your life, at least twice.
Don’t neglect to do this because brushing your teeth will help prevent cavities, bad breath, and tooth loss.
It also helps keep your gums healthy and free of disease.
Don’t Stop At Brushing
At least as far as we are concerned, brushing your teeth everyday is a non-negotiable.
So too is flossing. Dental floss goes after the plaque and tartar that embed themselves in the spaces between your teeth. Trust us, you won’t be able to go there with a toothbrush alone.
Dental floss, when used regularly and appropriately, will help you hold on to your teeth and your health in the long run.
Cleanse Your Palate
Rinsing with mouthwash is usually fine for folks over the age of 6.
It is a less essential practice but can be a great supplement.
The advantages are that it freshens your breath, fights bacteria, and prevents tooth decay.
Visit The Dentist Often
This one is huge.
When you bring your family in to Clearwater Dental Associates every six months, you can be assured that nothing too terrible will ever have a chance to gain a foothold in anyone’s mouth.
For example, we will know if you need a simple dental filling before it gets to the point where you need a root canal or tooth extraction.
We will also be able to ascertain from our X-rays and exams if there are signals that something is amiss elsewhere in your body.
What’s more, our professional cleanings will add a crucial layer of defense against any plaque, tartar, and bacteria that regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing can’t quite keep up with.
Plus, the more you visit, the better we’ll get to know your family and your needs so that we will be able to keep your smiles as healthy and happy as they can possibly be.
