Do you ever wish you could just prevent dental issues altogether? If so, then our Moore Dental Services team can help you grant that wish! There are things you can do on a regular basis that will keep your smile pristine and keep the dental issues at bay. Those things are:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s very important that you deeply clean your smile each day by brushing, flossing, and rinsing. It’s best to brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, floss once a day with an easy-to-use product, and rinse daily with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. Doing these things will help you remove the harmful plaque and bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.

-Wear a mouthguard: You don’t want to knock a tooth out of your mouth, do you? This is why you should wear a mouthguard while you participate in contact sports and activities. Wearing a mouthguard will protect your smile from the hard, forceful objects that hit it, decreasing your chances of injuring or losing a tooth.

-Visit your dentist: It’s vital that you visit Dr. Brian A. Moore every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. This appointment is important because the treatment involved is the only treatment that can completely remove the plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth. If you don’t remove them on a regular basis, there is a high chance that you could fall victim to gum disease, and, if left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss.
