Prevention Tips For The Dentist

Do electric toothbrushes really work?

The answer to this question is yes. Many times it is difficult for patients to adequately clean with a normal toothbrush. We have found that for many of our patients the use of a rotary or sonic toothbrush has improved their dental hygiene.

How do I keep my teeth clean?

For optimum oral health it is important to brush your teeth at least two times a day. Flossing once a day is important for cleaning between your teeth where the toothbrush will not reach.

Is soda pop really that bad for my teeth?

Drinking pop will increase your chances of tooth decay. Soda pop, sports drinks and juices all contain sugar and acid. When used frequently they will not only feed the bacteria that cause decay, they also acid etch the teeth. We recommend that the frequent use of these drinks be avoided. We also recommend that when these drinks are consumed that you avoid sipping them throughout the day.
