At Premier Dental & Oral Health Group in Lake Ozark, our passion is helping patients achieve and maintain healthy and beautiful smiles. When you settle into our chair, in our examination room, your dental health is our top priority.
Because everyone has unique dental needs, we develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses each patient’s challenges and goals.
Good dental health can be a real balancing act. At home, your dental health strategy should include:
- Daily brushing and flossing. You should brush and floss twice a day. Just before bedtime is especially important, because it cleans out the germs and plaque that build up during the course of the day.
- Proper brushing. It’s important not only to brush, but to brush properly. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush in a gentle, circular motion along the gum line. Take your time; a minimum of two minutes is recommended. Don’t forget to brush your tongue!
- Using fluoridated toothpaste. There are dozens of choices when it comes to toothpaste. Whether you prefer mint flavored or bubble gum, fluoride is the most important consideration. It is your best defense against cavities.
- Limiting sugary and acidic foods. Acidic fruits, teas, and coffee contributes to enamel erosion. Sugar converts into acid when it’s in your mouth. You don’t have to avoid these foods entirely, but choose carefully and minimize.
Your daily dental health care habits are essential. So is the attention of a dentist. At Premier Dental & Oral Health Group in Lake Ozark, we recommend twice-yearly cleanings and checkups. Our services include general and restorative dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today!
