How do I care for my smile?

There are many ways in which patients can be proactive about their oral health and wellness. We recommend following these specific tips:

Take care of the teeth at home every day. Patients are urged to brush and floss their teeth after every meal to reduce the risk of developing cavities or periodontal disease. Tooth decay and infection are the leading cause of tooth loss and damage. With proper home care, patients will enjoy their routine trips to the dentist, and not dread the diagnosis of troublesome conditions.

• Visiting the dentist regularly. Not only should patients take daily steps to prevent decay and disease, but they should schedule a dental visit every six months. During these visits, our dental hygienists can clean the teeth and gums, and our team can evaluate the health of the smile. Diagnosing problems early is key to treating them before they become more invasive—and costlier!

• Call the dentist when a problem arises. As soon as you notice a problem with your oral health, it is important that you schedule an appointment with Dr. M.H. Peters. If an issue is diagnosed in the earlier stages, it may be easier to treat than in the later stages of development.
