Think of your oral health as a beautiful piece of architecture. The building may be breathtaking and functional, but without a solid foundation, eventually it will crumble. The same goes for your oral health. Your teeth may appear to be in good working condition, but if you are skimping on your oral homecare routine and regular cleanings, it will only lead to more complicated and more costly maintenance down the road.
First of all, yes it is our job to ask you if you’ve been flossing regularly. While it may seem like we’re beating a dead horse, we only stress flossing so much because it really is THAT important. Don’t worry, we won’t make you feel bad if you’ve been slacking. You’re human, we get it – flossing is exhausting.
That’s why our hygiene team is one of the best in Bolivia and Oak Island. We’ll give you one of the most thorough, yet most gentle cleanings you’ve ever had, and we’ll show you the compassionate care that you deserve. We also emphasize patient education in order to provide you with the tools and knowledge to keep your mouth clean and healthy at home.
One of the most important things we can do as your trusted dentist is to provide you with the knowledge to take ownership of your oral health. There’s only so much we can do when we only see you twice a year, the other 363 days of the year are up to you. Here are some tips and tricks to make sure you ace your next checkup:
