Online Dental Education Library

It is important to us to educate patients about dental health & disease and treatments available.

As members of the ADA and the AGD, we recommend the links below to our patients to find more information on a specific topic. Both contain a searchable database of dental topics you should find useful.

In addition, we provide Invisalign treatment in our office. A link to Invisalign information is also below.

And, as always, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have. Please contact us.

If you have questions or need to schedule an appointment, contact us.

 

Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where the intake of harmful foods is controlled. Our program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored and manage periodontal disease. At the initial visit oral hygiene instructions are reviewed and are reinforced at subsequent recall visits. The following are helpful recommendations:

 

  • Brush your teeth twice a day in a circular motion with a soft bristled toothbrush aimed at the gum.
  • Floss every night in an up-and-down motion while keeping the floss in a U-shape and against the tooth surface.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • Avoid sticky sugary foods.
  • Eat a balanced diet.
  • Use antiseptic and fluoride rinses as directed.
  • Have sealants placed on young permanent teeth.
