Brush Away Decay In Plainville, CT
- November 22, 2016
Did you know that, even before you ever have your first tooth poke through, there is already dangerous bacteria, tartar and plaque running wild in your mouth? True story! When you are a child, at least you have your parents to attend to your oral health needs. But as you get older you naturally assume more of that responsibility.
In order to effectively ward off tooth decay, gum disease, foul breath, and tooth loss as an adult, you should be brushing your teeth and gums a minimum of twice a day, and for two minutes at a stretch. And never within 30 minutes of eating. That will go a long way towards maintaining a healthy mouth.
But brushing is really only the beginning. You will also need to floss and rinse with fluoride daily or just as often as possible. Even more importantly, you will want to schedule checkups at our Plainville, CT dentist’s office every 3-6 months. That’s because Dr. Peltzer has invested in the sort of tools, training, and technology that will help us keep you smiling for years to come.
Preventive Dentistry Is Easy In CT
Once you are entrusted to our care, you should plan to visit Gentle Dental Care often. After all, we are here to help keep you on track. When you come to our Central Connecticut dental office, our team can provide professional teeth cleaning, gum disease evaluation, checkups, diagnostic exams and cavity-prevention techniques. These are the sort of things that you just can’t accomplish at home no matter how diligent your efforts may be.
While you are here, we can also screen for oral cancer and also look for signs of other issues elsewhere in your body. It is always smart to take a holistic approach to your health. As interconnected as everything is, your mouth can tell us a lot about your overall condition.
Gentle Dental Care Makes It Comfortable
Our practice is called Gentle Dental CAre for a reason. We make it our mission to make every visit a comfortable experience for every patient that walks through our doors. Our staff is friendly and welcoming, our environment is warm and calming, plus we are certified to relax you even further.
Be sure to ask us about your sedation dentistry options if you have trouble sitting still, need multiple procedures, or just want a little extra help letting go of your anxiety. Our leader, Dr. Thomas Peltzer, is nationally known as an expert in the field of sedation dentistry and dental anesthesia. So, you can trust that you will be in good hands with us.
Still, like we said, for us to do any good, we suggest that you schedule your preventative dentistry appointments every 3-6 months. That way there won’t be enough time for anything really bad to transpire.
