Regular Tooth Brushing is Important for a Healthy Smile
Dr. Jason Petkevis recommends that his patients brush their teeth twice per day- also the recommendation of the American Dental Association. Brushing twice per day and flossing once a day will help to keep dental health problems like gum disease and tooth decay at bay between preventive care visits.
Using the right type of brush is also important! Be sure to use a soft-bristled brush to avoid irritating the sensitive gum tissue. Many patients prefer an electric toothbrush: be sure that the head has soft bristles as well.
Brush the teeth and along the gum line for approximately two minutes- twice per day. After one brushing, floss between the teeth to remove any food particles and plaque that can cause decay. Regular brushing can easily remove plaque from tooth surfaces and helps to prevent the development of disease. Rinsing daily with a fluoride rinse can also be an important part of maintaining tooth enamel and keeping teeth resistant to decay.
Visit Dr. Petkevis at Dental Distinction in Chester Springs twice per year for a thorough professional dental cleaning. This also gives him the opportunity to spot and treat any developing dental health problems.
Preventing Dental Concerns with Routine Care
Routine dental care is the foundation of your oral health and can prevent the development of complex problems, which often require extensive (and expensive) dentistry to correct. Dr. Petkevis and the staff of Dental Distinction place disease prevention and good oral hygiene at the center of our preventive care program. We take the time to understand the factors affecting your dental health:
- Lifestyle habits
- Medical history
- Overall oral health condition
Taking all of these important factors into consideration enables us to provide personalized oral hygiene advice that can keep your unique smile healthy between visits. We offer the convenience of family dentistry: general, cosmetic, and restorative services under one roof, helping accommodate your busy schedule and ensuring that everyone can enjoy the benefits of good dental health.
