The best oral healthcare routines start at home. Brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day are key to optimal oral health for the whole family. Did you know that there are areas in your mouth that most people just can't reach to clean correctly? Did you know that once plaque builds up over time the only thing that can remove it is a professional dental cleaning?
Coming in at least twice a year for a professional cleaning is not only important for your oral health upkeep, but it's also important because we can spot many oral health problems early on; long before they require extensive and oftentimes expensive intervention therapies.
