Patient Education

Welcome to Care Dental: Learn About How to Maintain Good Oral Health
At our practice, we believe strongly in patient education. We want our patients to understand the importance of taking proper care of their teeth and gums. Preventative care is the best way to avoid costly, painful dental problems down the road. We encourage our patients to brush and floss twice a day, use mouthwash, and visit our office twice a year for professional cleanings and checkups. We also recommend having sealants applied to molars to help prevent cavities. 

Success Stories
Preventing Cavities With Care Dental
Cavities are caused by bacteria that turn sugar into acid which can damage the enamel on your teeth. To prevent cavities, brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and checkups. Reduce your sugar intake, and replace sugary snacks with healthy alternatives like vegetables and fruits. Avoid sugary drinks like soda and sports drinks. If you have dry mouth, drink plenty of water and chew sugar-free gum to increase saliva flow. Ask your dentist about fluoride treatments to help strengthen your enamel.
Top 5 Must-Do Actions For Patients
1. Brush your teeth twice a day - Brushing your teeth twice a day is essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy, as it helps to remove plaque and bacteria.

2. Floss regularly - Flossing helps to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth and below your gum line.

3. Visit your dentist regularly - Regular dental visits are essential for maintaining good oral health. Your dentist can check for any issues and provide treatment as necessary.

4. Eat a balanced diet - Eating a balanced diet that is low in sugar and processed foods can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

5. Use a mouthwash - Using a mouthwash can help to remove bacteria and can help to reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

It is important for patients to follow these steps as it can help to maintain good oral health and prevent any dental issues from developing.
