Preparing for the future can save you a lot of time and money, and this includes taking care of your teeth as well. Proper home care, along with scheduling a dental cleaning and exam on a regular basis, can save you invasive and costly procedures in the future. We want you and your family to have a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Preventive dental care focuses on maintaining excellent oral hygiene throughout your lifetime to keep your teeth and gums healthy and viable. It is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day, for two minutes each time. Do not forget to brush your tongue. Millions of disease-causing bacteria can collect on the top of your tongue and spread to the rest of your mouth. Brushing your tongue twice a day is quick, easy, and a big help in the fight against tooth decay and bad breath. You can use a manual or electric toothbrush with soft bristles, and be sure to brush all surfaces of your teeth.
Brushing too aggressively with a hard or medium-bristled toothbrush does not clean your teeth any better and can actually cause more harm than good. The technique is more important than force! Flossing and rinsing with mouthwash is important as well. Flossing is not just to remove food from in between your teeth – it also removes any hard to reach bacteria hiding between your teeth and just under your gum line. This is why preventive dental care is very important to maintaining a healthy mouth and gums.
I want to say I have never been so happy with any previous dental offices as I have been with yours. Everyone is so professional and compassionate. I look forward every time I go there!
It’s astounding how technology is changing the ‘face’ of dentistry. I’ve found previous crowns to be uncomfortable, messy and time consuming. You can imagine the surprise stepping into this modern, welcoming and friendly dental practice to be told that my broken tooth required a crown and would be undertaken and completed in my single visit. Outstanding! … short, enjoyable and fun appointment.
My husband is a dental specialist, so I get my teeth cleaned at his office. When they found a couple cavities at my last visit, he referred me to Dr. Jennifer Derse to get them filled. Not only are Dr. Derse and Dr. Levin top-notch dentists, but they are also the highest quality people! They are kind, compassionate, and truly care for their patients. Dr. Derse was friendly and professional.
The BEST dental group I’ve ever had.
It’s been decades since I’ve been in an establishment that was so professional, courteous, warm, and efficient. I have referred at least 5 family and coworkers, my daughter will be there in February. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!!
