Brush Your Teeth Daily!
For good oral health, brush your teeth twice a day with a good fluoride toothpaste!
How Old Is Your Toothbrush?
Replace your toothbrush every 3 or 4 months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
A Healthy Diet Makes a Healthy Smile!
For healthy teeth and gums, eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. Go easy on sugary treats!
The Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) was founded on the basic principle of ensuring that the high-fear patient has access to safe, comfortable care.
As a member of DOCS in the Troy, IL area, Dr. Waters fully supports its mission is to further scientific knowledge and professional education in conscious sedation dentistry to help create a safe and welcoming dental experience to those who avoid seeking care due to fear.
Modern dentistry, with the help of sealants, fluoride, and preventive care, has dramatically reduced tooth decay in children. However, there’s been an increase in decay in seniors. Some medicines dry out the mouth, for example, reducing salvia. Saliva is vital in fighting tooth decay because it helps neutralize acids, has a disinfectant quality, washes away bacteria, and helps prevent food from sticking to your teeth.
If you have questions about senior dental care, please call Advanced Gentle Dental Care today at (855) 527-1687.
When it comes to basic dental care, Dr. Waters will tell you that nothing tops brushing. If you choose to use a manual toothbrush, be sure that it is small enough to reach your entire mouth easily. Also, bristles that are too firm can cause your gums to bleed. Those who prefer something a bit more convenient and comfortable might consider an electric toothbrush. Be sure the head is soft and the bristles move in a back-and-forth motion.
If you have questions about your toothbrush, call us at (855) 527-1687 and we’ll be pleased to offer recommendations.
