Oral Hygiene

One easy way to improve your oral health and preserve your teeth is to use the right equipment regularly. We’ll tell you about the latest products that have been designed to enhance your smile.

Brushing & Flossing

You should brush at least twice a day: Once in the morning and once before going to bed. You should also floss once a day. Make sure to use a soft-bristled brush. Hard-bristled brushes reduce the enamel that coats your teeth.

Oral Cancer Screening 

Your mouth is part of the oral cavity, which also includes your lips, cheek lining, gums, front part of your tongue, floor of the mouth, and the hard palate (roof of your mouth). The throat (pharynx) starts at the soft part of the roof of your mouth and continues back into your throat. It includes the back section of your tongue as well as the base where the tongue attaches to the floor of your mouth.

During your dental visit, our team will talk to you about your health history and examine these areas for signs of mouth and throat cancer.

Regular Cleanings

Professional cleanings performed by a certified dentist or hygienist are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing.
