When it comes to taking care of your teeth and gums, you need to do so every day. You can brush between meals, floss daily, rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash regularly, eat well and stay away from sugary foods and drinks while refraining from tobacco use. These are things that you can incorporate into your daily routine, but even if you think that you do a thorough job of caring for your oral hygiene, it is still highly recommended that you visit the dentist for biannual visits and cleanings. Ideally, individuals should begin to see a dentist on a routine basis every year from the time that their first teeth begin to emerge. Here at Scottsdales Dentist we can successfully and comprehensively monitor your overall dental health from visit to visit and provide you with any care that you need. Gentle dental care can be provided with every visit, performing routine preventative care that will help lessen your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease. Preventative care often includes a complete oral health screening, a general exam and a professional teeth cleaning.
