Top 5 Ways to Improve Your Dental Health

Oral health problems are common but can be preventable for the most part. Most dental procedures are painless however here are a few tips to prevent dental problems before they start!

 

  1. Brush & Floss: Brush twice a day, two minutes for each time and don’t forget to brush your tongue as well. Make sure to replace your toothbrush every three to four months. Remove food particles from your teeth that the bristles can’t reach by flossing daily. Flossing your teeth will help remove and reach difficult areas and also removes bacteria that can lead to tooth decay. When flossing start with your lower front teeth then your upper front teeth and finally work your way around the rest of your mouth.
  2. Regular Visits to Dentist: Regular checkups and cleaning to your dentist can drastically help prevent dental problems. It’s recommended by dentists to get a regular cleaning done every six months. Professional cleaning by dentist can remove plaque that develops in hard to reach areas despite regular brushing and flossing. Dentists will also be able to take x-rays of your teeth to find any cavities. The treatments will be more effective the earlier a problem is detected. Double check to make sure your insurance covers your visits or any procedures you’re getting done.
  3. Diet: Try eating a balanced diet with fruits and vegetables, limited snacks in between meals. Food with high amounts of sugar can have an unhealthy impact on your teeth. To build strong teeth and bones over time have a generous intake of calcium in your diet. Get enough calcium through milk, cheese, and yogurt.
  4. Gum Disease: See a dentist right away if you have red or tender, swollen gums since it might be gingivitis. If your gums bleed excessively from flossing an appointment with the dentist will be able to determine if you have oral cancer, gum disease, or tooth decay.
  5. Braces: Misaligned teeth are harder to clean so if you have crooked teeth consider getting braces to straighten them out. Misaligned teeth can also potentially create more cavities and cause you more discomfort and pain in the future.

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
