Preventing Problems

San Ramon Family Dentists Discuss Preventative Dentistry

As San Ramon Family Dentists, we want you and your entire family to have a healthy smile. One great way to keep your mouth healthy is to practice preventative dentistry. This means be sure to brush twice daily, floss at least once a day, and visit your dentist once every six months, or as recommended. Preventative dentistry can go a long way in saving you money on expensive dental procedures in the future.


Brushing twice a day helps to remove plaque and cavity-causing bacteria. If you do not brush, the bacteria will eat away at the enamel of your teeth. Eventually, the plaque will turn into tartar, and at that point you will have to visit your dentist to have it removed.


Brushing alone, however, is not enough; you must be sure to floss at least once a day in addition to brushing. Flossing helps to reach the places that toothbrush cannot. It can help to remove trapped particles from between the teeth., and I removes any plaque buildup along the gum line.


The ADA recommends visiting your San Ramon family dentists at least once every 6 months. By visiting your dentist as recommended you can catch any problems early on. Often times damage to your enamel is reversible if caught early enough.


Preventative dentistry can help you to avoid expensive dental procedures. If you don't follow these measures, the plaque can cause you to develop cavities, tooth decay, and eventually even tooth loss! Be sure to replace your toothbrush at least once every 3 months to ensure that you are getting the most out of your preventative dental habits.
