The foundation of loving your smile. While other dental offices are happy to “drill and fill” at the slightest sign of a dental problem, the team at Love Your Smile Dentistry works hard to prevent those problems from popping up in the first place. Thanks to our excellent team, our patients can avoid common dental problems year after year so they can spend less time in our dental office and more time loving their smile. Every single beautiful and healthy smile we create is all built upon a foundation of top-notch preventive care. With it, we’re able to stop many dental problems before they even start, enabling our patients to spend less time in our office and more time simply enjoying their smiles! With just two preventive appointments each year, we can help keep things like tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more from away from needed services. To schedule your next preventive appointment so we can safeguard your teeth, schedule online today.
Brushing and flossing after each meal or at least twice a day can protect you from tooth decay and gum disease caused by plaque. Because plaque starts forming on your teeth right after eating, the longer you wait to brush and floss, the harder it is to remove. Flossing is the best way to prevent plaque from forming between your teeth and below your gumline, where decay often begins.
Without proper brushing and flossing, you can develop bleeding gums and eventually gingivitis – severely swollen, red, bleeding gums. Gingivitis can eventually worsen to gum disease. Diseases of the mouth can affect the rest of your body. That’s why it’s especially important to maintain good oral health through daily dental hygiene practices.
