Here’s To A Healthy, Happy New Year In 2017!

  • December 21, 2016

This has been quite a year at Gentle Dental Care. We are sincerely grateful for all the great patients who have opted to partner with us in 2016 for all of their preventive dentistry needs.

As you are making your resolutions for the coming new year, we hope you will resolve to make your oral health needs a priority by partnering with a truly gentle dentist in Central Connecticut, Dr. Peltzer! We offer a wide array of dentistry solutions here that are guaranteed to keep you on the good road.

To set you up for continued success, today, we’d like to share some tips that will keep you smiling in 2017, and, really, all through life. Keep reading, and then be sure to follow up with our Plainville-based team to arrange for your next appointment with Dr. Peltzer.

Don’t forget, most dental insurance policies reset with the calendar year, so there couldn’t be a better time to reclaim the health and appearance of your smile!

Brush Your Teeth!

Good oral health begins at home in front of the bathroom mirror. The ADA suggests that you brush two or more times a day for two or more minutes at a stretch. That is the least you can do to fight disease and decay in your mouth. Here’s an interesting fact: you should never brush within a half-hour of eating because your enamel will be in a weakened state.

Flossing Daily Matters!

When you brush your teeth diligently, that helps a lot. But you still won’t be able to get to all of the surfaces in your mouth where food, plaque, and other bad things can accumulate waiting to cause bigger trouble for you. We are thinking primarily of the spaces between your teeth. Take our word for it: by flossing daily, you will save yourself much pain and expense later on.

Fluoride Helps!

You can’t put a price on having a healthy smile. And it is sure expensive to try to replace it artificially. So, while it is in tact, it is worth doing whatever it takes to hold onto it. We can assure you that using fluoride will be a good defense for your smile. It is contained in many mouthwashes and toothpastes, and your trusted dentist can even set you up with a more intensive fluoride treatment if need be.

Don’t Avoid The Dentist

You won’t be doing yourself any favors by putting off your appointments. If you visit our Plainville, CT dentist’s office every 6 months, our team can provide you with professional teeth cleaning, gum disease evaluation, comprehensive checkups, diagnostic exams and cavity-prevention techniques. We can also screen for oral cancer and look for signs of other issues elsewhere in your body.

As our name implies, at Gentle Dental Care, our team will do everything possible to make your next visit to our practice a pleasant and comfortable experience. Please inquire about sedation dentistry if you need a little extra help relaxing. Dr. Peltzer is certified to provide you with multiple levels.
