Cleanings and checkups
Dental Hygiene at Home
Good oral hygiene starts at home. A regimen of brushing and flossing is very important to maintain healthy teeth and gums. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends brushing at least twice a day with a soft toothbrush. They also recommend flossing at least once a day. Along with good oral hygiene at home, the ADA recommends having a professional checkup and cleaning by a dentist at least twice a year.
A Healthy Diet for Oral Health
At Sachar Dental, we recommend a well-balanced diet including many fruits and vegetables and avoiding foods rich in simple sugars.
By maintaining a good regimen of brushing and flossing, and sticking to a healthy diet, one can reduce the risk of dental disease, however, it is still very important to see a dental professional twice a year for checkups and cleanings.
Professional Dental Cleaning and Examinations
A dental hygienist or dentist is able to perform a much more thorough professional dental cleaning than one can do at home with a toothbrush and floss. They are able to remove plaque and tartar that form between the teeth and under the gums where your toothbrush and floss cannot get to.
It is very important to have a dentist perform an exam twice a year in order to identify any problems or dental diseases in their early stages. Many dental diseases and tooth decay can progress very quickly in a short period of time. A small amount of prevention goes a long way instead of treating problems that have already progressed.
Digital Dental X-rays
It is important to have dental x-rays performed at regular intervals. The ADA recommends having dental x-rays performed twice a year. At Sachar Dental, our philosophy is to do x-rays only once a year and more if it becomes necessary due to dental problems, and also more for high risk patients. Although our state of the art, high-tech digital dental x-ray units put out very little radiation, our philosophy is to avoid exposure to radiation as much as possible. Dental x-rays are important in order to identify problems that cannot be seen by our dentists during their clinical examination.
