Discover Ways to Enjoy Your Best Smile
When we see you for hygiene, we want to make sure that we are very thorough in looking at everything. If there’s a cavity that’s just starting out, we’re like, hey, let’s put a watch on this. It’s important for you to come in six months later, again, to make sure that this doesn’t become a big problem. We also like to go over a lot of the hygiene care at home in terms of flossing and what kind of toothpaste you should be using if you’re sensitive. Or if you have, you know, a lot of things that we’re watching, we prescribe a toothpaste that will prevent this from going further into a cavity. We really like to remind our patients, hey, again, it’s very important for you to come professionally to get your teeth cleaned, because you can only do a big part of it is doing it at home. But also every six months, it’s really important for you to come in and for patients that we are just seeing or, you know, emergency exams or limited exams. We remind them, hey, I know you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, but we really would like to see you, you know, next week or a couple of weeks later and have you start your baseline healthier and keep seeing you so that we can, again, prevent a lot of, you know, big problems that can happen in the future.
