Inside your mouth is a sticky film called plaque, which gathers continuously, harboring the bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. To protect your teeth and gums against the effects of plaque there are important oral hygiene habits you can practice each day. An effective regimen of oral care includes limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages as well as brushing your teeth morning and night as well as flossing daily. It also means visiting our office for routine checkups and an Amarillo teeth cleaning. During a professional teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove any plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums, and offer guidance as to how you can better clean and care for your teeth at home. For our youngest patients, we strive to establish healthy practices that will last a lifetime, and offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, as an added level of protection against tooth decay. For patients of all ages, our dentist will examine the teeth, gums and their surrounding anatomy, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health, which means we can deliver the most straightforward and effective course of treatment.
Maintaining excellent oral health is easy and stress-free when you visit us at Houston, Vlosich & Short, DDS. With a professional Amarillo teeth cleaning and examination, we can halt the onset and progress of cavities and gum disease. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
