Cleaning and Prevention
Sansom Dental is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are given customized recall cleaning schedules to best maintain their oral health. Dental cleanings not only help prevent problems before they arise, they make your gums healthier and your teeth whiter. A professional cleaning removes hard tartar that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. It also involves a fluoride treatment and polish to help protect and soothe your teeth and gums. Even if you haven’t had a cleaning in over two years, it’s never too late to treat your teeth.
What are some preventative measures I can take?
Check for the ADA seal of approval when buying a toothpaste.
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
Floss daily before bedtime
Use an oral rinse after flossing
Avoid sugary foods, coffee, and tobacco
