The best way to avoid painful, costly dental procedures is to prevent decay or disease in the first place; this is achieved through preventative dentistry.
The At-Home Routine
Healthy teeth and gums start in your very own home. To keep your smile for a lifetime, be sure to brush at least twice a day (preferably after every meal) and floss once daily. Both are necessary to remove the plaque bacteria that causes tooth decay and leads to gum disease.
If you have children, model good dental health for them from the very beginning. If they see you caring for your teeth, they’re more likely to follow your example. Don’t forget that even baby teeth require attention; as soon as the first tooth erupts, you should begin gently brushing your baby’s teeth each day to prevent decay.
Regular Visits to the Dentist
Even if you take meticulous care of your teeth and gums, only a professional cleaning and examination can truly help you avoid complicated dental conditions. Be sure to visit Dr. Marcus in the Chicago Loop area at least once every six months (more, if recommended) to keep your teeth strong, healthy, and sparkling clean.
