At our Rochester, MN dental practice, we are ready to provide important preventive dental care when patients visit us for their routine checkups. During your time in the dentist’s chair, you can receive important services like a professional dental cleaning, and a thorough visual check for any oral health concerns. While the care you receive in the office is important, we are also ready to help you take better care of your teeth at home. For patients who have had issues with dental problems, or those who want to make sure they keep their teeth safe, we can provide important dental hygiene tips during a visit. This support is part of our overall goal of helping patients maintain their dental health, and avoid problems that might require professional intervention.
Is Your Current Oral Care Routine Keeping You Safe From Dental Troubles?
How likely is it that you will receive positive feedback at your next routine dental exam? If you are not in the habit of attending routine exams, or if you have done a poor job maintaining your smile since your last appointment, you may learn that you have a cavity, or that issues with your periodontal health call for treatment. Patients of all ages occasionally fall out of good oral care habits. What is important is recognizing poor practices, and making meaningful improvements in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Providing Tips On Smile Care For Our Youngest Patients
During pediatric dental visits, your dentist will take time out to help kids learn how they can protect their smiles at home. While a child’s teeth are generally as durable as an adult’s, the lack of experience kids have with oral care can make them vulnerable. We can give your kids guidance on how to floss effectively, and how to be sure they are brushing thoroughly. We can also use their visits as opportunities to discuss the importance of a good diet, and how sugar can hurt their smile.
We Help Patients Of All Ages Keep Their Smiles Healthy
Could you benefit from pointers on better daily oral care? Many adult patients feel confident in their current routine, only to discover they will need treatment for one cavity, or help fighting periodontal disease. After examining and cleaning your teeth, we can provide informed insights into the effectiveness of your current routine. By making changes to your brushing and flossing, you can avoid future problems with your oral health, and avoid the need for dental fillings and dental crowns at subsequent appointments.
