At Martin Dental Care, we practice dentistry for the entire family. We understand that people in different stages of life have different needs & we address them all. All adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors & the highest-quality care, & everyone wants to be comfortable & respected. Best of all, our dentists have extensive experience working with young adults & seniors, so we can make the dental experience more enjoyable for everyone.
While visiting us for a professional cleaning & exam regularly is very important, knowing the right way to take care of your smile is equally vital. Dr. C. Martin or our gentle hygienists would be glad to give both you the oral hygiene education you need to keep your mouth clean & cavity-free. Brush your teeth at least two times daily, or preferably after every meal, using a toothpaste that contains fluoride & a soft bristled tooth brush. Effective teeth brushing has more to do with your technique than how hard you press or how hard the bristles of your toothbrush are. Brush for at least two minutes each time to ensure you are thorough. Also be sure to floss everyday! Flossing removes plaque between the teeth, where a toothbrush can’t reach. Flossing can be done either before you brush or after—the most important thing is that you do it! Don’t forget behind the four teeth in the back! Feel free to ask for a flossing or brushing demo any time you visit our office. Everyone could use a refresher now & then.
These oral hygiene tips are important, especially for those who may have genetic or lifestyle risks for dental disease, such as gum disease. By properly caring for your teeth at home & visiting us reguarly, you’ll be all set for a lifetime of excellent dental health! Call Martin Dental Care for your appointment & consultation today!
